Heart contacts are a lens designed to correct vision problems caused by astigmatism. They work by reshaping the cornea’s curvature, allowing light to enter the eye more accurately. These contacts come in various options, including toric and spherical varieties.
What should I know about this?
An eye doctor prescribes these contacts, such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Before prescribing heart contact lenses, the doctor will perform a series of tests to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this type of lens. Some standard tests include measuring the thickness of your cornea and determining if your eyes change focus at different distances. These tests help the doctor select the proper type of heart contact lens for your needs.
Once prescribed these lenses, you must follow all instructions carefully. Wearing these lenses requires some additional care and handling compared to traditional contacts, so it is important to stick to a regular cleaning and care routine to keep your eyes healthy.
