How to treat red eyes from contact lenses

Have you been dealing with red, irritated eyes due to contact lenses? You may want to consider LASIK laser eye surgery. This revolutionary procedure has helped countless people improve their vision and reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses. Let’s take a closer look at why you should consider this option.

What is LASIK?

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. It is a surgical procedure that uses laser beams to reshape the cornea of your eye in order to correct vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. It works by removing micro-thin layers of tissue from the cornea, which will then help your eye focus light properly on the retina. The result is that your vision can be improved without glasses or contacts.

How does it help red eyes?

Red eyes are often caused by contact lenses, as they can irritate and dry out the delicate tissue of the eye. With LASIK laser eye surgery, you won’t have to worry about this problem anymore because it eliminates the need for contact lenses! Furthermore, unlike contacts, LASIK does not require regular maintenance or cleaning; once you’ve had the procedure done, you can forget about it!

Are there any risks involved?

As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with LASIK surgery. Some people have experienced visual fluctuations after having the procedure done – but these are often temporary and your vision should stablize.

That being said, these risks are minimal compared to those associated with wearing contact lenses long-term—especially if you don’t clean them properly or wear them too often!

If you’ve been dealing with red eyes due to contact lenses, it’s time to consider LASIK laser eye surgery! This revolutionary procedure has helped countless people improve their vision without glasses or contacts—and without having to worry about red eyes again!

Plus, there are few risks involved when compared to wearing contacts long-term; just make sure that you follow all instructions before and after your surgery in order to ensure a safe experience! Investing in this life-changing procedure will be worth it in both short term comfort and long term results. To find out more about LASIK, book a free virtual appointment here.
