Exceptional EyeCare. Incredible EyeWear.

Don’t have a bad romance!

Do you love your contacts? Most people do, but Americans are increasingly going gaga over a new cosmetic variety known as circle contact lenses. These are special colored contact lenses that give the illusion of having large “doe eyes.” Despite their innocent appearance, this type of lens can be highly unsafe for one’s eyes. They cause a dangerously low amount of oxygen to reach the surface of the eye which can lead to painful infections, ulcers, or worse. In some cases they can even lead to a permanent reduction in vision. In fact, they are illegal in the United States, but their popularity is increasing.
It’s important to remember that all contact lenses are medical devices and must be prescribed by your eye doctor. Always be sure to follow the proper cleaning and replacement instructions and have your doctor check them annually. If you’re interested in trying contacts for the first time stop by the office, and I’d be happy to fit some on your eyes!
