Q&A with Dr. S
Dr. Stephanie Sims Answers Your Eyecare Questions
I keep hearing more and more about contact lenses that are thrown away every day. What is the advantage because it seems more expensive to me?
One day disposable contact lenses have several advantages over traditional lenses. They are the healthiest way to wear contact lenses because all lenses get dirty over time with a biofilm of protein and lipids that are part of our tears. These lens deposits are what cause eyelid irration, redness, and reduced wearing time. One day lenses greatly reduce the effect of deposits on contact lenses. The other advantage is the low maintenance required since you do not have to clean and soak your lenses overnight. This is especially helpful for children and teenagers who may not take care of their lenses well. Another advantage is that when you travel, you can just take some strips of contact lenses with you and do not have to carry solution or cases. One day disposables do cost more than traditional lenses, however the cost difference can sometimes be as little as $30.00 per month. In this day and age, that is the cost of a few cups of coffee at your favorite coffeehouse. In addition, one day lenses now have expanded their parameters so they are now available for astigmatism and multifocals as well. One day lenses are ideal for part time contact lens wearers who wear lenses occasionally. The percentage of one day disposable wearers is increasing rapidly in the United States and will likely become the predominate way that people wear contact lenses in the near future.
What's New at Northwest Vision Center?
Northwest Vision Center in Columbus proudly introduces the addition of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), the latest technology for the early detection and treatment of common eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Dr. Yoongie explains, “The OCT is a computerized instrument that acquires and analyzes cross sectional and three dimensional views of the eye. It is non invasive and does not contact the eye itself. It is essentially an optical ultrasound but the resolution is even better than an MRI or ultrasound." Dr. Yoongie believes that the most exciting aspect of this technology is the ability to not only detect issues earlier but to run repeated scans to monitor the progress of the disease.
