Exploring Eyeglass Frame Styles

Hi there, my name is Becky Lillaup. I am crazy about all of the different styles of eyeglass frames available today. Eyeglasses are the ultimate accessory to keep on hand at all times. My less than perfect vision ensures I always get to wear glasses with my favorite outfits. I also keep prescription sunglasses on hand for especially cloudy or sunny days. I will talk about all of the frame styles that have been popular over the years. I will also talk about different styles that have come back into fashion recently. My favorites are cat eye and oval frames. I hope to help you find your favorites as well. Thank you for visiting my website. Be sure to come back soon.

Keeping Your Eyes Healthy While Wearing Contact Lenses


Contact lenses are convenient, easy to use and safe when used as recommended. However, there are some things you will want to do while wearing them in order to keep from hurting your eyes. All of these things are simple and easy and don't require any special skills or precautions. Here are three things to do to keep your eyes safe when wearing contacts.

Don't wear them overnight or for multiple nights:

Even though some contact lens manufacturers claim that their lenses are safe to wear for multiple days, many optometrists and ophthalmologists will tell you that you should still remove them before sleeping. Your chances of having corneal issues and infections are higher if you keep them on overnight or for multiple days without removing and cleaning. Contacts make it difficult for your eye to get enough oxygen in the day and closing your eyes compounds the problem. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't get these types of lenses. They are actually designed to breathe better than typical daily wear lenses, so for daytime use, they are actually ideal.

Keep your lenses clean:

This is extremely important because cleaning removes proteins and bacteria which can cause infections. When you clean the lenses, use a contact lens cleaner. Don't use distilled water because that does not fight bacteria. Don't pull at your lenses or touch them with your nails when you clean them as they can easily tear. Make sure your hands are clean and don't touch the tip of the cleaner bottle as it could cause bacteria to contaminate the solution and make it less effective. Cleaning should be done daily when you remove your lenses for the night.

Protect your eyes:

If you're working in a area where you're likely to get dust in your eyes, be sure to wear protection. Dust and dirt can easily get under the lens and cause abrasions and other issues. Also, if there's any chance that your eye could actually get hit, such as a contact or speed sport, then wear goggles. Another type of protection you might want to consider is protection against the sun. Many brands of contacts have UV protection, but combining this with sunglasses that block ultraviolet light will give you the ultimate protection and reduce your risk of eye problems.

Don't take wearing contact lenses for granted--make sure you do everything you can to keep your eyes healthy. If you don't then you will risk infection and damage which could cause your sight to be affected. If you are experiencing discomfort, redness or any other eye problem, stop wearing your contacts and see an optometrist or ophthalmologist. It is also especially important to see your doctor every year when you wear contacts to make sure everything is alright.
