Selection Of Soft Lenses Suitable For Minus Eyes Is Only One Side?
I want to buy a contact lens, my right eye is minus -1.00 and my left eye is normal, then I have to buy a contact lens with what minus?
Hello Alamudilau, Thank you for the question.
Minus eye is an eye refraction disorder that causes the sufferer to be unable to see objects at a distance clearly. This is caused by the size of the eyeball that is too long so that the image of the object falling is not exactly on the retina but in front of the retina. Lens strength (eg minus -1.00) for glasses and contact lenses will usually be different. Usually ophthalmologists and opticians will have a conversion change in lens strength from glasses to contact lenses. In addition, the size of the contact lenses must be adjusted to the shape of the eye.
In general, adjustment of the lens strength needs to be done if the patient's eye minus is above -3.50, for example for minus -4.00 on glasses, the strength of the contact lenses used is -3.75. However, in the end, the strength of the lenses used depends on the comfort of the user. We recommend that you consult with an ophthalmologist first so that you can have the correct lens strength for your eyes; you shouldn't decide for yourself.
Don't forget to pay attention to the hygiene of your hands, contact lenses, and contact lens storage box. Pay attention to the expiration date of the contact lens cleaner.
