Yet Even More Common Contact Lens Myths
Many patients who would like to try contact lenses are concerned that they won’t be able to get the lenses into their eyes. Although it can appear difficult and daunting at first, most people soon get used to the idea of putting in and taking contact lenses out of their eyes. And, of course, when you go for your contact lens fitting appointment (or soon after) you will be shown simple methods for inserting and removing your lenses. If millions of people can do it everyday then so can you. Also another misconception regarding contact lenses is that they are painful to wear. This is absolutely false. Most people experience some slight discomfort when they first begin wearing lenses, but this usually lasts only a few minutes. Modern soft contact lenses are easy to wear and so comfortable that, ideally, you will not notice you are wearing lenses at all.
