• Contact Lens Problems and How To Avoid Them


    Contacts lenses are simply foreign bodies we are introducing to the eye to assist with correcting our vision. Since these medical devices are foreign to the surface of the cornea, improper care, maintenance and handling of contacts can result in very serious sometimes vision threatening complications. The body often reacts to objects it perceives as threats by engaging the immune system. The eye is no different than any other major organ or system.

  • Contact Lenses For Kids


    Some small children wear contacts, babies as well. There are some teenagers who should not wear contacts. It all boils down to one basic question: is your child mature enough to wear contacts?

Our neurosensory system begins to slow down and we react to stimuli more slowly. Our gastrointestinal system may develop ulcers, acid reflux or not digest foods as efficiently. Cardiovascular disease may become an issue as cardiac muscles begin to weaken or exhibit signs of disorder. Incontinence often becomes a concern. Women go through menopause.
