Who cannot wear Contact Lenses?

Who cannot wear contact lenses?

Contact lenses are an alternative for eye glasses. It was created more than 100 years ago, it was first made of glass and hard plastic. Nowadays, contact lenses are made of soft plastic, it is a small and thin disc designed so you can place directly on the surface of the eyes (cornea).

Often, eye doctors or other professional optometrists prescribe contact lenses for vision problems such shortsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. An optometrist can also prescribe them to treat certain eye conditions and diseases. For instance, people who have had cataract surgery and who have not received a lens implant, also can use special contact lenses.

If you’re thinking of getting a contact lenses, there are two thing that you need to do first;

  1. Find out the facts about contact lens
  2. Visit you eye doctor

Since contact lenses are medical devices, they must be properly installed by an eye care professional. This could happen even if you’re not wearing glasses and just want to wear contacts to change the colour of your eyes. After your eye doctor examines your eyes to make sure it is okay for you to wear contact lenses, then they will write you a prescription for contact lenses.

However, not everyone can use contacts and should switch to contacts. For some people, the idea of touching their eyeballs everyday is not something they want to do, but for others there are medical and physical problems that need to be addressed. You should not wear contacts lenses for example if you have dry-eye syndrome or allergies. 

who cannot wear contact lenses

So, who cannot wear contact lenses? The person who has dry-eye syndrome which is their tear glands produce fewer tears. Although, there are contact lenses and eye drops designed to help their dry eyes, it is still not enough to make wearing contact lenses comfortable. Other than that, who have allergies or sensitive-eye means they are allergic to the disinfecting solution or the contact lenses itself. Every time they go to clean their contacts, the body will react negatively and might cause discomfort due to irritation and infection to their eyes. Ages also plays a role for anyone who cannot wear contact lenses. Children and pre-teens want to try contacts to change their look. From the opinion of an eye-doctor, the earliest age who can try contact lenses is during adolescence; because their eyes are very tender and sensitive. Plus handling contact lenses is not an easy task, if they put it the wrong way, it may cause damage to their eyes.

Contact lens solution top 5

We are going to introduce top 5 contact lens solution recommended by our optometrist. It is important to take good care of your contact lenses in order to extend the life of your contact lenses, and protect the safety and health of your eyes. Lens care varies depending on material and wearing schedule. Daily disposable lenses are discarded after a single use and thus require no cleaning. Other lenses require regular cleaning and disinfecting to prevent surface coating and infections.

There are many ways to clean and care for contact lenses, typically called care systems or lens solutions. Two types of solution that are commonly used included:

  • Multipurpose solutions

Multipurpose solutions are the most common method for rinsing, disinfecting, cleaning, and storing soft lenses. Clean your lenses, then rinse and disinfect, all with the same solution. When you are ready to wear the lenses, rinse them again.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide solutions

Hydrogen peroxide can be used to disinfect contact lenses. Care should be taken not to get hydrogen peroxide in the eye because it is very painful and irritating. With “two-step” products, the hydrogen peroxide must be rinsed away with saline before the lenses may be worn. “One-step” systems allow the hydrogen peroxide to react completely, becoming pure water. Thus “one-step” hydogen peroxide systems do not require the lenses to be rinsed prior to insertion, provided the solution has been given enough time to react.

Being concerned with your eye health and contact lens care, Avizor, the expert in solutions, has a single solution for every problem and occasion. Avizor is a laboratory in Madrid, Spain dedicated to the manufacturing of solutions for the cleaning and maintenance of all types of contact lenses. Avizor have been working in this field since 1985.

1) Avizor Unica Sensitive: “In a class of its own”

Avizor Unica Sensitive

For users with sensitive eyes: With the addition of extraordinary  lubricant agent (Sodium Hyaluronate or Hyaluronic acid), the solution has the following effects:

  • Protect cornea thanks to the prolonged time in the eye
  • Improved tear film stability-  Hyaluronic acid is one of the most moisture-absorbent molecules in nature.
  • Increases the hours of comfortable use- Hyaluronic acid easily spread over the eye during blinking.
  • Accelerates healing time preventing irritation and redness caused by the mechanic action of the lens.
  • Clarify your vision by reducing the ocular symptoms of dry eye.

2) Avizor Alvera with Aloe Vera: “Protects in the most natural way”

Top 5 contact lens solution recommended
  • especially designed and tested for use with silicone hydrogel lenses. 
  • The use of contact lenses can alter the physiology of the ocular tissue and may create intercellular spaces allowing the entry of foreign substances.
  • Aloe Vera creates a film over the epithelium that prevents the entry of these substances that may damage the epithelium, thus reducing the risk of irritation.
  • removes lipids more effectively, but also reduces the affinity of lipids to adhere to the surface of the contact lenses, which considerably increases hygiene and comfort in the use of silicone hydrogel lenses.

3) On the other hand, Hydrogen Peroxide solution produced by Avizor is called Ever Clean.

Lens Solution

It is a revolutionary “One-step” system for the cleaning and disinfection of all types of contact lenses (Soft contact lenses and Rigid Gas Permeable lenses). Ever Clean contact lens solution is the result of eight years of research into creating a product to clean all contact lenses throughly without the need for rubbing in only 2 hours.

How it works?

Thanks to its 2 layer table EVER CLEAN has double action:

The white layer performs the cleaning action from the first movement, while eliminating lipids and proteins from the surface of the lens.

The green layer acts slowly and extensively controlling the disinfection and neutralization of the hydrogen peroxide.

On the whole, the Ever Clean tablet performs a powerful disinfecting and cleaning action after which the peroxide is transformed into a preservative-free saline solution where the lenses are stored and ready to use.

Ever Clean is specially recommended for users with:

1. Problems of deposit accumulation

  • No more deposit due to a greater capacity of cleaning and disinfecting.

2. Problems with allergies

  • After neutralization the final solution contains no preservatives.
