- To find eye diseases before using contact lenses
There are several diseases that medically prohibit using contact lenses. For example, acute inflammation of anterior eye part, infectious eye disease, uveitis and heavy dry eye are some of the diseases. These diseases can only be diagnosed by ophthalmologists. Among these diseases, some of them can be easily noticed by subjective symptoms, but some can be difficult to see under lifestyle habits and other diseases.
Also, most people leave some diseases untreated. Using contact lenses under those conditions can make the disease worse, and might completely lose your eyesight.
By having medical check-up by an ophthalmologist, you can prevent the worst situation.

For those who are using contact lenses with eye diseases might want to know if you can wear contact lenses in your current eye condition. By receiving medical examination by an ophthalmologist, we are able to provide full explanation and precautions so you can use contact lenses safely.

In case when the lenses you bought didn't fit, it might cause you eyestrain or headache if you keep using them. Depending on the lenses, it can lead to keratitis or conjunctivitis. To avoid any eye diseases, it is important to see an ophthalmologist and receive consultation before buying contact lenses.
