Hi Larti eyes friends! It has been a while that we do not share our patient information to you all! Here are another case to share with:
🔎Patient chief complain:
The patient is a 22 year-old female, a student, who presents with right eye pain, tearing, sensitivity to light and mild blurry vision after she removed her contact lens at night after been running errands all day. She wears contact lens 6 days per week and 12 hours per day.
ℹ️Here are some tips to consider before removing contact lenses:
- One of the most important things you can remember about removing your contacts is to always wash your hands with soap and water first. Wipe your hands dry to minimize the amount of water that gets on your lenses.
- Another important tip for removing (and inserting) contact lenses is to start with the same eye every time. This reduces the chances of an accidental switcheroo. (Remember, your contact lenses, like your shoes, have a right and a left side.)
- Rewetting drops or lubricants can make it easier to lift the lens from your eye. Dry eyes let the lens stick a little more closely.
- Give yourself enough time to remove your lenses calmly without rushing.😏
- Slide the lens to the white of your eye, especially if you’re worried about discomfort. Pulling the lens toward your lower lid can also help lift it off the surface of your eye.👀
