Treat Dry Eyes And Plan To Use Contact Lenses?
. I’ve had tumor surgery on the jaw to the sinus. The nerve flow of the lips and eyes is cut off and does not function properly. Especially in the left eye that does not drain, seeing UV rays is painful and dizzy. Eye drops didn’t help much. I have a plan for paki soflens for eye cylinders because my eyes are 0.75 silinders. I can not do activities properly with my eye sight is very bad. Please how is the solution Doctor. Thanks.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Contact lenses are an alternative treatment for eye complaints that are popular today. Not only are they more flexible than glasses because they are directly attached to the front of the eye, contact lenses are now also sold in a variety of styles so that even those who have no vision problems use them.
However, you need to know that contact lens users have a risk of certain diseases, namely:
Inflammation of the corneas. Conjunctivitis. Corneal scratches or abrasions. Dry eye syndrome
In your case, what we are worried about is that even without a history of neurological disorders causing your eyes to dry out, the use of these contact lenses itself carries a risk of drying out your eyes. So we are worried that if you keep wearing contact lenses, you will experience more disturbing symptoms. Even though cylinder 0.75 is still quite small and can still be handled with glasses which have less side effects.
But of course, you should clarify this again with your ophthalmologist, because we don't know your full medical history and we don't examine you directly. It is possible that there is a different opinion from the eye doctor after he sees you in person. Therefore, you should consult your ophthalmologist, as well as show you what cylinder contact lenses you plan to use. So, hopefully it answers your question.
