It is recommended to have your eyeglasses or contact lenses prescription updated annually or as advised by your optometrist. Regular eye exams ensure that your prescription remains accurate and that any changes in your vision are promptly addressed. This helps maintain optimal vision and prevents discomfort or eye strain.

Can I switch between wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses?
Yes, you can switch between wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses depending on your preference and lifestyle needs. Many people choose to use both, wearing contact lenses during active or social occasions and eyeglasses for reading or relaxing at home. It's important to have an up-to-date prescription for both and to follow proper care guidelines for contact lenses.

What should I do if my contact lenses cause discomfort?
If your contact lenses cause discomfort, remove them immediately and inspect them for any damage or debris. If the discomfort persists, switch to your eyeglasses and contact your optometrist for an evaluation. Discomfort can result from a variety of issues, including improper fit, dryness, allergies, or infections, and it's essential to address the problem to prevent further eye irritation or damage.
