Contact lenses can help give you seamless vision correction and can help improve your peripheral vision as well as your ability to see in front of you. Contacts allow you to wear designer sunglasses and they do not draw too much attention. Here are some things Dr. Landon Wallace at East Memphis Optometry in Memphis, TN, might want you to know about contacts.
Your Contact Lens Prescription Is Brand-Specific
Dr. Wallace wants to make sure that you don't have problems with allergies or with the way your contacts fit. That's why Dr. Wallace writes a prescription for the specific brand of contact lens you will wear.
You Need a Correct Prescription
Make your eye checkup appointments in advance of the date your prescription expires. This can help ensure that you can always get replacement contacts and may also help give Dr. Wallace an opportunity to check your eyes for new problems while they are still treatable.
It can be important to get routine eye exams. Some conditions, like glaucoma, might not present clear symptoms to the patient until permanent vision loss has already occurred. An eye exam, however, can catch these conditions early to help prevent that vision loss.
Plan to Stick to Your Schedule for Wearing Your Contacts
Dr. Wallace will tell you how many hours a day you can wear your contacts, as well as any other kinds of wear schedules you might need to observe to avoid eye irritation and inflammation.
