Cheap Contact Lenses vs. Quality Contact Lenses

Cheap Contact Lenses vs. Quality Contact Lenses

Many of us like to save money where we can in life, looking for good deals and cheap sales. But cheap isn’t always better. Cheaply made contact lenses can create a host of problems in your eyes, including being a host for bacteria and other foreign bodies that could cause irreparable damage to your vision. When it comes to your eyesight and your health, don’t compromise them both to save yourself a little money. Here at Mountain Eye Care, we carry a quality selection of contact lenses.

Poor Hygiene

Many no-name brand contact lenses are made cheaply overseas. They use harsh, irritating dyes that are not approved by the FDA and Health Canada. The poor quality of the lens also hurts your eyes, as it does not provide enough oxygen to allow them to ‘breathe’ properly.

On top of this, cheap contact lenses usually have a much more rough surface than quality contacts, that can cause abrasions on the eye and lid, allowing for easy access to viruses and bacteria that could result in horrible infections.

Contact solution is a great way to clean your contacts and get rid of harmful bacteria, but if the contact lens is not fundamentally made well, all of the quality solutions in the world won’t be able to fix it. Skip out on poorly made lenses that can cause your vision to worsen, and choose Mountain Eye Care for quality made contact lenses.

Poor Vision

Vision is the number one reason for wearing contact lenses in the first place so if your vision is not being improved upon, then what is the point of cheap contact lenses? In many cases, low-quality lenses do not provide the type of visual aid necessary to the prescription, causing eye strain, blurred vision, and headaches.
