One of the most popular ways these days to correct various eye problems is not wearing spectacles but using eye contact lenses. The contact lenses are basically thin tiny discs made of plastic which are placed directly on the surface of the eye. Some of the common eye problems for which lenses are used include myopia, hypermetropia, etc.
These conditions are known as refractive errors. The lenses may also be worn by people who have had cataract surgery. These days you can find various kinds of lenses such as colored lens, ’round the clock lenses’ (better known as ‘døgnet rundt linser‘ in the Norwegian language).
There has been a lot of progress done in the technology of the contact lenses and as a result, it’s quite easy to wear them. Apart from optical reasons, there are various other reasons as well for which people choose to wear contact lenses. The most usual reasons are for aesthetics and cosmetic purpose.
Mainly these individuals want to avoid wearing glasses or wish to change the appearance of their eyes. Also in comparison to spectacles, contact lenses generally provide better peripheral vision and do not accumulate moisture from rain, snow, condensation etc. or perspiration.
Moreover, you must ‘buy lenses online’ (better known as ‘kjøp linser på nettet’ in the Norwegian language) only after visiting a professionally experienced ophthalmologist. Since they would be able to examine your eyes, to evaluate whether your eyes would be suitable for contacts, suggest cleaning kits, and providing guidance for proper wearing and follow-up visits to the doctor as well.
