Why do I Need a Prescription for Contact Lenses?

April 14th, 2018

Contact lenses are medical devices as defined by the FDA/Health American. As with all medical devices there are several risks involved in using them, which are decreased when dispensed by a licensed Optometrist.

Ill-fitting contact lenses can cause redness, swelling, blurred vision, eyestrain and headaches. More serious complications can include infection and ulcers of the cornea (front surface of the eye).
