Eye infections due to bad contact lenses can result in permanent blindness
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2012 -- Soft contact lenses are highly popular amongst people who have weak eyesight. They have provided an alternative to glasses for many years and people have purchased and loved them. However, it must be noted that almost all of the people who wear contact lenses don’t follow all the steps that are necessary for wearing them.
These steps include: washing of the hands before use, disinfecting the lens, keeping the case free of germs, and also remembering the time period for changing them.
Realizing this factor, Johnson & Johnson has come up with a systematic plan to ensure that people follow the general guidelines pertaining to wearing and using contact lenses. This resource has been given the name, Healthy Vision & Contact Lenses, according to news-medical.net.
Sheila Hickson-Curran who is the Director of Medical affairs at Johnson & Johnson said: “All contact lenses are medical devices, even if they are cosmetic ones and need to be prescribed by a doctor or a medical expert. If these are bought or used without such protections the use could lead to extreme eye infections. In severe cases these infections can result in permanent blindness.”
Hickson-Curran has also assisted with a study regarding this topic, which also included the feelings of people who change their lenses frequently and follow the dictated guidelines. She also concluded that not following the steps could lead to itchy eyes and other related discomfort after wearing the lens. Serious problems like microbial keratitis could also occur.
Healthy Vision and Contact Lenses has been created for this purposes because it gives step by step procedures on how to handle lenses. This also comprises of suggestions on how to use the related products and along with that how reduce the chances of suffering form possible infections and even temporary or permanent blindness.
