What is a contact lens health evaluation?
Annually a contact lens eye health evaluation is done to check for complications associated with contact lens usage. Contact lenses are a Class A Medical device as defined by the FDA. As a result, improper usage of contact lenses can lead to increased risks for eye infections and inflammations. Our office manages complications associated with contact lenses like those listed below. However, a lot of these problems can be prevented through proper maintenance and evaluations on a regular annual and sometimes bi-annual basis. We believe that prevention is the best way to practice medicine.
