The only problem faced by the consumer is the problem of choice. Many do not know what parameters have lenses and what should we pay attention to the lens served as long as possible and successfully.
The main thing you want to remember the person buying contact lenses is a mandatory visit to the ophthalmologist. Without consulting a doctor better not engage in self-selection of such devices – they not only may simply not be suitable in accordance with your physiological characteristics, but also to harm. This is because most of the eye diseases directly related to the problems of the eye muscles. And if these muscles are constantly in a relaxed state, the disease will continue to progress.
