Most Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are soft contact lenses?

Soft contact lenses are small, thin, gel-like plastic worn directly on the surface of the eye to correct vision problems. They can correct most vision conditions, including Myopia (short- sightedness), Hyperopia (far-sightedness), Astigmatism (irregularly shaped cornea) and Presbyopia (also known as "old vision" that affects most mid to senior age patients). Cosmetic contact lenses are also available for those who want to enhance their eye color or beauty used to enhance one’s looks.

2. At what age can I wear contact lenses?

That depends on how responsible you are in maintaining the lenses; this decision is best made jointly between you, your parents and your eye-care professional. Contact lenses, when used with care and proper hygiene, are a safe and effective way for people of all ages to correct their vision.

3. Can I wear contact lenses while playing sports?

Contact lenses are the ideal vision correction option for athletes. Contact lenses provide you with a wider field of view, enhancing your depth perception and peripheral vision. They are also more comfortable and convenient for physical activity.

4. Can I still wear my lenses after they have expired?

No. Contact lenses should not be used beyond the expiration date that is printed on the package. Also, wearers should adhere to the recommended wearing schedule.

5. Can I swim with my contact lenses on?

We do not recommend swimming with your contact lenses on, as there are bacteria in the water that can adhere to your lenses and cause infections.
