New research suggests that two-thirds of contact lens wearers don’t practice proper hygiene. If you struggle to get your lenses clean and it’s affecting your eye health, LASIK vision correction might be a superior option.
Along with not washing hands before handling lenses, other leading causes of contamination include failure to let the carrying case air-dry after use and not starting to use a new case upon opening a fresh bottle of solution. Patients who have worn contacts for more than two years displayed a marked lapse in diligence when it came to healthy contact lens care, according to Medical New Today.
By correcting your vision with LASIK, you can overcome the issues veteran contact lens wearers often experience:
LASIK significantly reduces or eliminates the need to wear glasses or contacts
Permanent vision correction, as opposed to starting new contact lenses every two to four weeks
None of the hassles or costs associated with contact lens solution, cases, and other products
Lower risk of infection from touching the eyes with unclean hands
LASIK has many different lifestyle benefits that patients considering a switch from glasses or contacts could enjoy. If you live in the Greater Sacramento area including Folsom, Fair Oaks or Citrus Heights Dr. Wilmarth will evaluate your eye health and vision to determine if laser vision correction is right for you.
