Having Problems Seeing? Tips to Improve Your Vision

I spend most of my time working on my laptop or desktop computer. Although I take precautions to keep my eyes healthy, I still experience unexplained vision problems. After speaking to an optometrist about my eye problems, they suggested that I change the lighting in my home and office. The overhead lighting in my work space was actually too bright for my eyes. I lowered the lighting in my ceiling and placed adjustable lamps on my desk. If I need more light, I simply adjust the lamps over my computer screen. I can now work without damaging my eyes. If you have problems with your eyes and can't figure out why, read my blog. I offer real tips you can use that protect your eyes at work or home. Good luck and thanks for stopping by.

How To Have An Easier Time Wearing Contact Lenses

If you are new to wearing contact lenses then you may find there are times when they can get quite irritating. The good news is there are different things you can do to make for a more pleasant contact wearing experience. This article will offer you helpful information on some things you can do (and avoid doing) that will make your contacts more comfortable to wear on a regular basis.

Use more solution

Don't be afraid to use too much solution. When you are cleaning your contacts to put them in, really soak them and rinse them a few times with the solution. You want to get everything off them and off your fingers. Fill each contact up more than half-way with the solution before you put them in your eyes.

Tip: Use a mild soap to wash your hands before you put your contacts in and air dry them. This way, you won't have to worry about towel fragments getting on the lenses.

Wear sunglasses when you're outside

You'll find that your eyes can get easily irritated outside when you first start wearing contact lenses. The sun, wind, dust and pollen can all cause you added irritation when you are just starting to get used to having contacts in your eyes. Wearing sunglasses can help protect your eyes, and the contacts, from these elements.

Don't wear contacts when you are doing certain activities

If you are going to be involved in certain activities that place you around a lot of fumes or under certain conditions, it may be a good choice to wear glasses instead. Painting with spray cans is one example of a time when you may not want your contacts in. The small articles of paint in the air can get on your contacts and ruin them. Also, going to a bon fire may be a bad idea since the smoke can bother your eyes a lot more when you are wearing contact lenses.

Don't wear them when you are extremely tired

When you are very tired, your eyes will start to burn and itch. Not only can the contacts make it worse, bit you may forget you have them in and start rubbing your eyes. This can cause the contacts to fall out and get damaged or lost.

By following the advice offered above, you will have a much better experience when you start wearing contact lenses. For more information, contact an optometrist like Robert A. Marini, OD.
