What i think about Pasar Malam Contact Lens……

There was a time when the world started to change….. as if the definition of ‘Pretty” for certain human beings tends to go towards a rather unusual way…. Yes… pick a guess…. Bigger Eyes….

It was a time when many internet shoppers gone crazy with all of these so called Korean Bigger contact lenses.

Many of these contact lens which with unclear sources of manufacture ( Some even Posted their License online, but its from Korean Govt… and how true is it?), successfully invaded the market and made their way to many consumers consisting of those young teenagers and even first time contact lens wearers.

It has been dissapointing for the last few months finding out these unknown colour contact lenses setting up their beachhead in major shopping centres as well as pasar malam or night markets nationwide…. Klang Valley.. P.J… Penang…. Ipoh…….and many more….

 Some of many unlicensenced contact lens sellers.

The Fact is Alarming as there are still many people that are not aware about selling contact lenses do require License issued by the Majlis Optik Malaysia, Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia.

Worse still many more are not aware of the RISKS of getting contact lenses

Without Vision Examination, No Fitting Assessment, No Proper Consultation whatsover…

Sadly, these pasar malam colour contact lenses were sold out just like candies in the convenience shop, and most importantly they were sold in unbelievably low prices…

Some of them even outsmart the consumers by asking them to get free eye test in any optical store for their prescription, while they just follow what prescription consumers provide them…

 

Attracted by these prices and promotions, its terrifying that consumers were unaware that they are jeopardizing their vision and Eye health by wearing these unknown, unapproved by Malaysia Ministry of Health sold by unprofessional, unlicensed seller….

As a licensed eye care practioner and Optometrist, it dissapoints us seeing these Pasar Malam Contact Lens sellers risking the Vision & Sight of consumers..

Therefore, i urge all contact lens users to take care of your eyes, your vision and your eye health.

Go for a proper full eye examinationas well as consultation when you intend to get your new pair of contact lenses, color or not.. bigger or not…

Your Eyes Deserves Better…..

you only got One Pair of Eyes… don’t hope to get one more…..

戴隱形眼鏡的10個知識!!!

 良好的衛生與配戴習慣是隱形眼鏡使用者能夠舒服配戴和避免產生併發症最重要的工作,凡隱形眼鏡的信仰者必需嚴守以下誡律

 一:絕不配戴隱形眼鏡過夜。雖然目前隱形眼鏡材質的透氧度大為提高,甚至有些隱形眼鏡強調可以持續配戴不用取下。但是睡眠時角膜本已處於相對缺氧狀態,此時配戴隱形眼鏡會增加角膜受損與感染機會。

二:絕不配戴隱形眼鏡游泳。在游泳時使用隱形眼鏡是很容易造成角膜感染的,應使用有度數的蛙鏡來矯正。

 三:絕不用舌頭或唾液來清潔隱形眼鏡。口腔內充滿了各式各樣的細菌,是感染的可能來源。

四:絕不只用水龍頭的水來清洗隱形眼鏡。國內自來水多半達不到生飲標準,水中也有可能含有致病細菌,用自來水清洗是相當危險的,最好使用生理食鹽水。

 

五:不要隨意使用他人的隱形眼鏡。即使兩人的度數相近,但是角膜弧度可能大不相同,不合適的眼鏡可能造成角膜傷害。且共用隱形眼鏡就像共用牙刷一樣,是很不衛生且有可能感染疾病的。

 

六誡:在配戴隱形眼鏡之前不要使用含有乳霜的香皂洗手。因為乳霜會殘存在您的手上污染眼鏡。

七:不要在配戴隱形眼鏡時使用眼藥水。幾乎所有的藥水都含有防腐劑,藥水成分與防腐劑可能破壞鏡片材質,且隱形眼鏡吸附的藥品可能造成眼睛毒性。

 

八:不要在眼睛不適時配戴隱形眼鏡。如配戴時發生不適,請立即取下,切莫遲疑。

九:不要在駕車時使用角膜變色片。這種以美容裝飾為目的的鏡片,因為上面有各種圖案及染色,會降低眼睛的對比敏感度,不宜在駕車時使用。

 

十:配戴隱形眼鏡發生問題時不要諱疾忌醫。有些感染症是會導致失明的,儘速就醫才是最聰明的選擇。
