Contact lenses and allergic eye disease2015-07-03 00:00:00
Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) conducted a survey of people suffering from the symptoms of allergic eye disease and wearing contact lenses. It was attended by 800 people. The results showed:
- About 45% of respondents sometimes stop wearing contacts because of the allergic reactions;
- About 10% of respondents had to stop using contact lenses and switch to eyeglasses;
- 50% of respondents said that they use moisturizing eye drops more often.
At the same time 45% of the participants said that they use monthly lenses, and 38% - two-week lenses. The survey also showed that 74% of users of contact lenses, that suffer from allergic eye disease have never been prescribed to wear disposable daily lenses (despite the fact that these eye lenses are undoubtedly the best instrument of contact correction, especially for those people who suffer from seasonal allergies).
Based on these data, AAFA experts have developed a special brochure that describes all the advantages of wearing contact lenses 1-Day Acuvue Moist for those people who suffer from allergic eye disease.
