Patient Education

Contact Lens

Divya Prabha had a small beginning as an Eye Clinic in 1998. Surgeries were performed at a nearby multi speciality hospital. Work on the new hospital building and Operation Theatre Complex was started in 1999. Mr. Subramaniya Iyer, former Chief Engineer PWD, was the person chosen to plan, coordinate and execute the project.

It has several advantages over spectacles

The patient will have a wider field of view with contact lens. There will not be any steaming. There is no restriction of activity while using contact lens. Patients with high power glasses will have better and sharper vision with contact lens.

Disadvantages of contact lens

Once the Contact Lens are placed over the eyes, there will be increased tearing, lid irritation, excessive blinking. It is a matter of getting used to an unaccustomed set of sensations. By the end of one week the contact lens wearer is usually no longer aware of the lenses on his eye except when he thinks about it.
About the only real disadvantage in wearing contact lenses is the process of getting used to them. Once the wearer has become accustomed to all day use of contact lenses, he will find it difficult to name any disadvantage of importance.
