Preventing Contact Lens Infection in Omaha


Wearing contact lenses allows you to showcase your entire face without eyeglasses. If you are going to an event and want to ditch the glasses or prefer to forego glasses on a daily basis, contact lenses allow you to see without the bulking glasses adorning your face.

Unfortunately, one of the downsides to these lenses is that they can contribute to eye infections. Learn how we at Dr. Cooper Pediatric Ophthalmology & Family Eye Care can help minimize the risk of contact lens infection.

Conducting an Initial Lens Fitting

The first way that we at Dr. Cooper Pediatric Ophthalmology & Family Eye Care can help prevent contact lens infection in our contact lens wearers is by ensuring that your lenses properly fit your eyes. Eyes are all different sizes, shapes and have different curves to them. We can properly measure the shape, size, and curve of your eye to determine the best contact lenses for you. Not only does this provide a more comfortable fit, but it helps keep dirt and debris from gathering under the lens and causing an infection. 

Educating You on Caring for Your Lenses

After fitting you for your new contact lenses, we will take the time to educate you on caring for your lenses. Different lenses need to be cared for differently. Learning how to properly clean the lenses and when they should be disposed of is key to preventing infection. Unfortunately, many patients do not know what they should get rid of lenses because they think that all lenses are cared for and disposed of in the same manner and timeframes. We help to ensure that you know how to care for them and when to dispose of them. 

90 Day Fitting Period Exam

When you are wearing new contact lenses, we ask you to come back around the 90-day mark. During this examination, we check to ensure the lenses are properly fitting your eyes. Once again, not only does this help to keep them comfortable, but it helps to prevent infections. 

Performing Annual Contact Lens Examinations

The last way that we at Dr. Cooper Pediatric Ophthalmology & Family Eye Care can help you to prevent contact lens infection is by performing an annual contact lens examination. As you age and wear contact lenses, the curvature of your eyes can change. If you wear the same lenses you wore ten years ago, the lenses may not fit your eyes well, which can lead to infections. We perform an exam annually to ensure your lenses correctly fit your eye, reducing the risk of eye infections.
