CONTACT LENS


A contact lens is a thin, curved lens placed on the film of tears that covers the surface of your eye. The lens itself is naturally clear, but is often given the slightest tinge of color to make them easier for wearers to handle. Today’s contact lenses are either hard or soft. Most people wear the latter form now, but it wasn’t too long ago that contact lenses were even glass blown!

While contact lenses are still most commonly worn for vision correction, there are also contact lenses for purely cosmetic and novelty purposes. Colored contact lenses can enhance or completely change the hue of your eyes, and costume contact lenses can help create some of the special effects, you see on the big screen.

All contact lenses, however, are medical devices, regulated by the U.S. FDA. Prescription contact lenses and cosmetic contact lenses all require a prescription. This is because even common complications such as infection and inflammation might lead to vision loss or blindness.

Gupta Dental and Eye care located in Wanowrie (Pune) is a well-known for its best in class and high quality contact lenses.


How to wear contact lens:

1. Gently shake your lens case containing the storage solution, to loosen the contact lens should it be stuck. (Don't try pulling at the lens with your finger, or you might damage it.)

2. Slide the lens out of its case and into the palm of your hand. Rinse thoroughly with the appropriate contact lens solution.

3. Place the contact lens on the tip of your index or middle finger, which should be dry or mostly dry.

                                                                 
4. With the fingers and thumb of your other hand, simultaneously pull up on your upper eyelid and down on your lower eyelid.

5. Position the lens on your eye while looking upward or forward, whichever you find to be easier. You also can apply the contact lens by placing it on the white of the eye closest to your ear.
