Q & A on Contact Lenses
Dr. Viker Answers Contact Lens Questions
Can I put my child’s contact lenses in for them or is it best that they do it themselves?
No. Contact lens wearers of all ages need to be able to insert and remove their contacts independently in order to leave the office with a pair of lenses. Our staff will work with your child one on one to teach them how to properly place the contact on the eye, remove the contact from the eye, and care for the contacts. It is important that children are comfortable with handling their contacts on their own so that in the event they need to remove their contacts at school they are able to do so without help. Typically, after a week of practice with contact lenses kids will be quite skilled and efficient at putting them in and taking them out.
Contact lenses offer advantages over glasses in sports, but is always important to keep in mind the need for eye protection over contact lenses in sports such as basketball and hockey.
Why do I Need Regular Eye Exam?
While most people schedule regular check-ups with doctors and dentists, many are not aware of the importance of an annual visit to the eye doctor. Regular eye exams can be the key to the early detection and treatment of emerging vision problems, eye diseases, and a number of other health issues. When you come to The Eye Doctors for an eye exam, you will receive comprehensive service designed to find and correct any vision or eye issue.
