If you wear contact lenses, you are more likely to develop an eye infection. At Lens Lab Express, you can purchase your new contact lenses in Corona, as well as learn about different contact lens-related infections, and how to avoid them.
When you are purchasing new contact lenses in Corona, you may first want to meet with our optometrist at our vision practice and optical store for a contact lens exam and fitting. Our optometrist will not only fit you perfectly for your next pair of contact lenses, but our optometrist can also talk to you about how to avoid getting contact lens-related infections. Keratitis is just one type of contact lens infection that can be easily treated, but if left untreated it can go on to cause serious vision loss. It is important that whenever you handle your contact lenses that your hands are freshly washed. You also do not want to touch your eyes with hands that are not clean because infection can be easily transmitted to your eyes from your hands. Our eye doctor will tell you how frequently you should disinfect your new contact lenses. You will also want to make sure that you change your contact lens case on a regular basis, as this too can become infected with bacteria that can cause an eye infection. Another way to avoid getting eye infections from contact lenses, is to make sure that you do not wear your contact lenses for longer than recommended. If your contact lenses ever become discolored, this can be a sign that there is infection in the contact lenses; you should immediately stop wearing them and have your eyes checked to make sure you are not developing any eye infections.
