Many ophthalmologists and optometrists highly recommend disposable contact lenses. They are a wise choice health wise because there is less opportunity for protein and bacteria to build up on them. Also, if you wear daily contact lenses, which are thrown away at the end of the day, you won’t need to buy solutions to clean and disinfect them after use.
Contact lenses come in various material types’ replacement schedules and wear schedules. Many wearers find disposable contact lenses and extended wear contacts the most convenient.
Some people do have good luck with over-the-counter reading glasses. However, you need to visit your eye doctor regularly for 2 main reasons:
- Eye examinations are the only way to catch ‘Silent’ diseases in their early stages, when they are more easily treated.
- One-eye-fits-all reading glasses do not work well for people who have a different prescription in each eye, or whose eyes are not centred in the lens. Headaches are a common problem in those cases.
Anti-reflective coating / Blue Protect coating helps you to see through your spectacles more easily, your eyes are more visible and eliminates the annoying glaze in photos taken with a flash.
Here are lists of possibilities that might trigger a child to wear spectacles:
