Contact Lenses Henderson

At the office of Dr. Trang Tran and Dr. Esther Tan, our Henderson optometrist is here to help you with any optical difficulties you be experiencing. Some of the most common reasons our patients seek treatment from our Henderson optometrist are eye inflammation and eye infection symptoms. The eyes are some of the most sensitive parts of our bodies, and so can be quite vulnerable to infection and inflammation. For example, if you scratch your eye and in turn disrupt the integrity of your cornea’s structure, it can easily become infected very quickly. Similarly, the surrounding tissues of your eyes can easily become inflamed by non-infectious disorders and invaders. For these reasons, it is especially important to carefully wash your hands before touching your eyes in order to avoid the invasion of microorganisms and bacteria.

Contact lens users are often prone to bacterial and other eye infections because of the constancy in which they have to touch their eyes, and because how easily infecting agents can latch onto their lenses. If you use contact lenses, it is important to always wash your hands before touching them, and to properly sanitize your lenses each day as directed by an eye care professional like our Henderson optometrist. If your eyes become red, itchy, inflamed, or uncomfortable in any way, you should always schedule an appointment to see Dr. Tran or Dr. Tan as soon as possible so that we can relieve your symptoms, and prevent any serious damage from taking place. It is imperative that you have these kinds of symptoms checked out, because they usually result from a larger problem that may require professional treatment to heal.
