Softlens Size For Minus Eyes?
Afternoon ,. I want to ask, I have a minus eye with a right eye of -4.00 and a left of -1.00, I want to use contact lenses, well for what size minus the contact lens?
Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The condition of a minus eye or myopia is nearsightedness where disturbances occur in the lens of the eye or the shape of the eyeball that causes the shadow does not fall right on the retina of the eye but in front so that the view to see far away becomes blurred. To include measurements of the minus it will be checked and the best is the smallest size of the best visibility that can be seen. What is meant as an example is if someone in size -1 can see clearly with vision 6/6 that is the same as a normal person and size -1.25 also gets a vision 6/6 while paa size -0.75 is a vision of 6/12 ie normal people can see the object is from 12 meters while you are only a distance of 6 meters. Then you should choose glasses size -1 so that the optimal size is obtained but not excessive. Even for the size of the contact lens I use the minus size with the best but the smallest view.
During using contact lenses you should also consider the following points
Wash your hands thoroughly before touching
Use a special cleaning fluid
Gently rub the soft lens when cleaning
The contact lens box should be replaced every month
Avoid using softlen when swimming or sleeping
Thus the information that I can convey. May be useful
