Frequently Asked Questions
The average age people usually get contact lenses is 13, but it has been shown that some younger children are responsible enough to wear and maintain contact lenses. Successful lens wear depends more on responsibility and attitude than age. Speak with our team of Optometrists to determine if your child is a good candidate for contact lenses.
Ever heard of contact lenses melting over a barbeque? Don’t worry, this is fake news. The lens material can only decompose at temperatures much higher than the boiling point of water.
Not likely. Contact lenses can be easily removed using the method our Optometrists recommended. All it takes is practice and patience.
Not likely. With proper fitting, contact lenses should stay in place almost all the time. Even on that rare occasion when a contact lens moves out of place, it usually stays in your eye until you move it back.
Such contact lens-related problems can occur, but they’re unlikely. Most common eye health issues are caused by poorly fitted lenses, or by not taking care of the lenses like you should. If you do experience any unusual eye discomfort or changes in your vision, remove your lenses and give us a call immediately.
