Become a Visionary: 6 Signs You Should Switch Contacts

, by nanmoon, 3 min reading time

If your contact lenses cause itchiness, irritation, or pain, it's time to switch. Lenses should not cause significant discomfort. Damage, such as scratches or dents, can also harm your eyes and invite germs. Disposable lenses have a limited lifespan; don't extend their use. Cloudy lenses hinder vision and may indicate protein buildup—always use fresh solution. Proper lens care is crucial: wash hands, dry lens cases, and never sleep in lenses. If your lenses aren't providing clear vision, consult your eye care professional for alternatives.

6 reasons why it's time to switch your contact lenses

If your lenses cause you to experience itchiness, irritation, or pain, don't use them. You should not experience significant pain, irritation or itchiness from your contact lenses. When you start wearing contact lens, you may experience the feeling of something in your eye. This is mostly due to you not being used to lenses. This is known as contact lens awareness, and it usually lasts between 7-10days after you begin wearing the lenses. It is possible that your lenses are causing discomfort. You may feel discomfort from lenses due to dust, bacteria or other contaminants. These can harm your eyes and cause them to become cloudy. To rule out infection or injury, schedule an appointment with your eye care provider in addition to changing your lenses.


Damages to the lenses:Contact lens don't last for ever. Many lenses are intended to be thrown away, but even those that are not can become damaged, scratched or dented over time. Replace your lenses as soon as you notice any damage. Even small nicks or dent can scratch the eye or open the door for germs. You should schedule an eye exam if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort. Your eye care professional can rule out damage caused by a damaged lens.


The contact lenses can be thrown away after only a few uses.Many lenses designed for disposable are available. The lifespan of lenses that are disposable can vary. Some lenses are for daily wear, others are weekly or even monthly. If your lenses' usable lifespan is over, throw them away rather than trying a few days more of use. Consult an eye care professional if you don't know how long your lenses should be used.


Your contact lenses appear cloudy or obscured.Your contacts are supposed to improve your vision. If your contact lenses are cloudy, then they are not working properly and need to be replaced. Clouded lenses can also be an indication that proteins or lipids have accumulated on the lens. This happens when you reuse your contact lens solution after restoring them. Use fresh solution to store your lenses. Never "top-off" half-filled lenses with new solution. If the problem persists, it may be necessary to switch over to a peroxide solution that is preservative free.


You've not taken care of your contact lenses properly:Review with your eye care professional proper lens care practices. Along with using new solution to store contact lenses, it is important to wash your hands when inserting or removing lenses. It is also important to drain and dry the lens case after each use. Last but not least, do not wear your lenses while you sleep.


The lens isn't producing the desired results: Discuss with your eye care professional a new prescription or different type of lenses if you feel that your current lenses aren’t performing as expected. If your lenses are blurring or distorting your vision, you should replace them with something that will work for you. Everyone is unique.
