We find many Marion residents that like to stretch the limits when it comes to wearing their contact lenses. We often counsel them that contact lens hygiene is critical and so is making sure you’re not overwearing them.
Contact lens overwear syndrome comes from over-extending their contact lens wearing time or by wearing their lenses while they sleep. If you’re one of the many who do this, you need to make sure your lenses are approved for sleeping and that your hygiene is consistent. You should always look to control the time your have your contact lenses in as it is important for your eyes to have rest from them.
If you have questions about contact lens overwear syndrome, contact Marion’s eye doctor, Royal Oak Eye Care. We’re here to help!
