Best contact lenses to Purchase Today

Your eyes should be one of your most cherished organs. They open the window to the world and show you different colours and objects. Hence, getting them checked and purchasing eyewear online is important to complement your vision.

You can speak to your Optician to understand if you have vision-related issues. That way, you can be recommended to either purchase spectacles from an eyeglass store or invest in daily or monthly contact lenses.

Contact lenses are gel-like substances that keep your eyes hydrated while offering perfect vision. You can get rid of the headache of wearing eyeglasses/frames externally. The only downside of wearing contact lenses is that they need a lot more care than glasses, since they have to be taken off, cleaned and stored in a contact lens solution every day.

You can learn to keep your contact lenses in check to ensure they last long. Simultaneously, if you're looking to invest in the best contact lenses, Optica has some top-notch options for you.

It is always recommended to buy contact lenses from a branded store, whether you decide to check local eyewear shops or buy online. Optica is one of the most renowned eyewear brands having affordable lens prices in Kenya.

Are there any Risks of wearing Contact Lenses?

It is important to choose contact lenses that adapt to the shape of your eyes. If they are uncomfortable or too old to fit, they might cause redness, pain and irritation in the eyes.

Hence, it is recommended to purchase eyewear online, depending on the size and power recommended by your doctor.

You should also take care of the following factors while using contact lenses:

  • Do not use eye drops with contact lenses unless they're lubricating drops recommended by your doctor. You must avoid using any other form of eye drops or medicine for the eyes as they may interfere with your vision.

  • Remove your contact lenses immediately if you notice no improvement in your vision.

  • Contact your doctor or healthcare professional if you witness blurring, redness, and tear secretion after wearing contact lenses.

Tips to Care for your Contact Lenses

Whether you use them daily or monthly, caring for your contact lenses goes a long way in achieving crystal clear vision without any hassles. Always take extra care of your contact lenses to avoid scarring eye infections.

 Here are a few tips you can follow.

  • Don't use contact lenses after storing them for 30 days without disinfecting. Ask your doctor or lens manufacturer about the frequency of cleansing and disinfecting your contact lenses.

  • Water and contact lenses don't mix well, despite several myths you might find on the internet. Remove your contact lenses while taking showers, swimming or doing any chore that impacts your eye with water.

  • Don't touch your contact lenses with dirty hands. Always wash your hands with soap and water, towel dry them and then put on your contacts.

  • Rubbing and rinsing is the best method to keep your contact lenses working for long periods. Despite your solution being 'no rub', always dip your contact lenses in the cleaning solution and rub them gently. Proceed to clean and towel dry them before putting them into your eyes.

  • Use a sterile contact lens box to store your contact lenses. Never leave them open or unattended.

  • Don't use a contact lens box beyond three months despite it being in perfect condition. Similarly, replace the box as soon as it is cracked or damaged.
