Soft Contact Lenses Aren't Always Recommended

It is true soft contacts are beneficial in many situations but they are not recommended for everyone. The following situations are just a few examples of when even soft contact lenses may not be recommended:

• Those who work in an environment where they are exposed to chemicals which may adhere to the contacts

• Those with Sjogren's syndrome which includes symptoms of chronic dry eyes

• Those with arthritis who would have difficulty handling, cleaning and inserting the contacts

• Those with medical conditions such as diabetes, allergies or asthma which may make wearing contacts uncomfortable

• Those who are not willing to expend the energy to care for their soft contact lenses properly
