Finally, there are therapeutic contact lenses that are used to decrease the discomfort caused by irregularities in the surface of the cornea, injuries or diseases and to protect it from dryness in some diseases where the lid cannot adequately protect the eyeball (eg facial paralysis).
Despite these dizzying developments in products and technologies, it is interesting that there are still some myths about contact lenses, such as:
“Contact lenses can cause eye infections”
False: One of the possible causes of eye infection is the poor or inadequate user hygiene, contamination of the lens due mainly to their use for long periods of time (more than 12 months) and low oxygenation thick materials or obsolete technology.
With a schedule of frequent replacement (biweekly, monthly or even daily), you can maintain a healthy cornea and eliminate the possibility of infection.
