Are you thinking of buying a pair of contact lenses and saying goodbye to glasses? Or do you already use contact lenses, but would you like to try DESIO colored lenses? Great idea!

Are you sure, that you really know everything about the application and maintenance of contact lenses? And what can happen if you fail to respect wear times and, for example, forget to take your lenses off before going to sleep? Or what if you don’t dry your hands well before putting them back in the case?
Here is a short illustration with some simple tips for wearing colored and non-colored contact lenses in a safe and comfortable way.

1- CONTACT THE SPECIALIST BEFORE PURCHASING CONTACT LENSES

Wearing contact lenses is often more practical and comfortable than a pair of glasses, therefore many people choose the latter option to correct visual defects. With the development of colored and comfortable contact lenses such as DESIO has further increased this trend. DESIO colored lenses, in fact however, offer two advantages: 1) correcting the visual defect and 2) changing eye color, giving depth and intensity to the gaze.
Don’t forget that contact lenses are medical devices. Their
use must follow a test and an evaluation of the ocular response by a qualified professional, who will verify the effects of the lenses on the eyes. In fact, the evaluation may differ from one subject to another.

2- ACCURATE HYGIENE

Before applying the lenses, removing them from the eye, handling them, you must wash your hands thoroughly and dry them carefully with disposable paper. It’s better to avoid towels and air jets that can be contaminated by significant bacteria.

3- WHEN TO APPLY LENSES

To ensure proper oxygenation to the ocular surface, it is good to apply the lenses as late as possible in the morning and remove as early as possible in the evening.

Leaving your eyes without lenses for a few hours while awake allows you to avoid situations of hypoxia. Hypoxia is a state of oxygen deficiency that is manifested by a fogging of the eyes, a feeling of sand and burning. It can lead, in severe cases, to the formation of edema or more serious pathologies.

Fortunately, the materials with which the latest generation of contact lenses are made, such as DESIO, reduce the risk of hypoxia and dehydration because they are extremely flexible and permeable to oxygen. However it’s always good not to exceed the hours of wear stated and follow the specialist’s instructions.

4- COMPLY WITH THE WEAR TIME INFORMATION INDICATED ON THE PACKAGE

The daily lenses are designed to be worn in the morning and removed in the evening. Once removed they must be discarded and not applied again.

5- DO NOT WEAR YOUR LENSES IF YOU FEEL YOUR EYES ITCHING OR BURNING

Often the most obvious indications are the most disregarded. When you experience any eye ailment, you should avoid wearing lenses. It is a common experience for ophthalmologists to have visiting patients still wearing contact lenses even when they come to the clinic with their eyes in a bad state.

Remind. The colored lenses are on sale in the optical stores, official DESIO dealers and also on the official website www.desiolenses.eu
