Laser Eye Surgery vs a Decade of Contacts

laser_catarct Have you decided it is time to say goodbye to your dependence on contact lenses and have laser eye surgery in Orlando? Of course, the experts at Magruder Laser Vision support your decision because, as you well know, there are risks and annoyances associated with wearing contacts for vision correction. Unfortunately, too many people who wear contact lenses experience minor day-to-day annoyances, such as irritation and discomfort, and more serious problems, such as eye infections and corneal ulcerations. Here are some potential causes of the problems wearers of contact lenses may face.

  • Incorrect Use and Care: Since soft contact lenses are so thin and delicate, they must be handled with extreme care. Failing to improperly store them, not washing your hands before use, or allowing them to come into contact with anything besides your eye can lead to buildup on the lens itself, which contributes to irritation and discomfort.
  • Wearing the Lenses Too Long: With so many contacts on the market, wearers have options as to how long they can wear them, with some being worn only during waking hours and some that can be worn overnight. Unfortunately, many people wear their contacts longer than the manufacturer recommends, subjecting their eyes to possible problems from infections from the bacteria that builds up from prolonged wear.
  • Eye Infections from Contact Use: The chance of getting an eye infection for those wearing contact lenses is much higher due to improper care and usage and from wearing them too long, and these eye infections are potentially threatening to eyesight. That is why laser eye surgery is a great option for those who have repeatedly suffered from eye infections caused by their contact lenses.
