Even More Common Contact Lens Myths

By editor

Yet another common contact lens myth is many people believe that they can’t wear contact lenses--this is most likely false. Contact lenses are now available for wearers from an enormous demographic range. Teenagers and children are able to wear lenses subject to proper hygiene standards being maintained and lenses are now available for presbyopic and astigmatic patients who need toric or bifocal correction. Another common myth is that contact lenses are not available for a particular prescription. This is most probably false. Modern lenses are available in an enormous range of prescriptions for a range of eye conditions. Contact lenses are available to correct myopia (short sightedness), hyperopia (long sightedness), presbyopia (for those over 40) and astigmatism. In addition to the enormous range of prescriptions cosmetic effects are also available for anyone who would like to change their eye color.
