Selection Of Contact Lenses For Minus Eyes?
Noon I want to ask, I have minus + cylindrical eyes. With the right eye minus 2.00 and cylinder 1.00 while the left eye minus 3.25 and cylinder 1.75. If I want to use only minus lenses, approximately how much do I have to use contact lenses?
Hello, Srii.rhayu, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In people who have refractive abnormalities (such as myopia / minus eye, hypermetropy, astigmatism / astigmatism), to see optimally, help is needed so that the shadow can fall right on the retina. The assistance can be by using glasses, contact lenses, up to the operation.
For glasses or contact lenses to function optimally, the size and strength of the lens must be adjusted to the patient's eye condition. If it is not suitable, then its function may not be optimal ie the patient cannot see clearly and normally. So, if your eye condition is minus and cylindrical, then you should use the appropriate contact lenses so that you can see optimally. You can go to an ophthalmologist for an examination and be prescribed eyeglasses or contact lenses that suit your eye condition.
Choosing contact lenses must also pay attention to many things and must know how to treat them to avoid the risks that can occur, such as keratitis (inflammation of the cornea), corneal ulcus (injury to the cornea), or dry eye syndrome. Read more about contact lenses in the HealthReplies.com article entitled "The importance of choosing good contact lenses" and "Contact lens users must know the risks".
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
