There are many causes for contact lens intolerance including allergens, wearing your contacts for too long, ill-fitting lenses, wearing makeup, and even allergies. But perhaps one of the most annoying symptoms of contact lens intolerance is how much you pay for the contacts and all of the supplies needed to wear them every day.
Although not as well-known as eye problems like nearsightedness and astigmatism, presbyopia is a very common condition that is estimated to affect almost 1.4 million people worldwide. This age-related eye condition is best known for affecting your ability to read clearly and is a leading cause of people buying ‘reading glasses’ once they enter middle age.
Contact lens intolerance, or CLI, is defined as an inability to wear contact lenses without pain. It can be a temporary condition from irritated or allergy-inflamed eyes, or a more permanent problem, causing the contact lens wearer to give up on them completely.
ReLEx SMILE is one of the newest and most advanced forms of laser vision correction. Most suitable for patients who are nearsighted (myopia), it uses a less invasive technique during which a small area of tissue called a lenticule is removed from the cornea to reshape it and correct the patient’s vision. This is done using state-of-the-art laser technology and performed with eye numbing drops, meaning that patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort. ReLEx SMILE is considered one of the safest and most effective techniques for laser vision correction.
LASIK laser vision correction is the single most popular elective surgery in the world, and since it was first approved by the FDA back in 1999, it’s estimated that more than 10 million Americans have had the procedure. Today, around 700k U.S. adults have the procedure every year so that they can see clearly with little or no need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK laser vision correction is the most popular elective surgery in the world and has transformed the vision of millions of patients over the years. However, many people are surprised to learn that there are slightly different varieties of the technique available depending on your needs. One of these is monovision LASIK. Here’s what you need to know about how monovision LASIK differs from the traditional procedure and how to determine which is right for you.
More than 61% of Americans need help to see clearly. Over 45 million achieve this by wearing contact lenses. Unfortunately, for nearly 5 million contact lens wearers, they suffer from a little-known condition called CLI, or Contact Lens Intolerance.
Getting laser eye surgery is a big decision, particularly when it comes to choosing the laser vision surgeon who is going to perform your procedure. Your eyes are extremely valuable, so you want to make sure that you are in the safest possible hands.
LASIK may be one of the most well-known forms of laser vision correction, but that doesn’t mean that it hasn’t changed over the years. In fact, the technique has continued to evolve and improve in order to offer patients the greatest degree of precision, accuracy, and safety possible.
