At present, the most common contact lens brands in the market can purchase 800-1000 degrees, so many people with high myopia ask, how many degrees of myopia can no longer wear contact lenses? Let's answer this question today.
In fact, whether you can wear contact lenses is not determined by the degree of myopia, but by the conditions of your eyes and your physical fitness. In theory, contact lenses can be worn in any degree. Even for patients with high myopia, contact lenses are a better choice because they are close to the eye and reduce the deformation of the object.
So what if you can't get the degree you want? Contact lenses can also be customized, but they are relatively expensive. And because high myopia is often accompanied by astigmatism, it may be necessary to customize astigmatism contact lenses to achieve the best correction effect.
However, it should be noted that high myopia may not be suitable for wearing contact lenses. Myopia above 1000 degrees is mostly congenital, serious may also be accompanied by fundus lesions, wearing contact lenses will definitely do more harm than good. It is suggested that the patients with high myopia should go to the eye hospital for a comprehensive examination before matching, and make an evaluation on whether they are suitable for wearing contact lenses. According to the opinion of the doctor, it is better to match glasses.
If there is no problem after the examination, high myopia can also be assured to wear contact lenses. However, due to the more complicated eye conditions, special attention should be paid to the following two aspects: one is that the eyes cannot be worn continuously; the other is that the eyes cannot be worn for more than 8 hours at a time, so as to prevent the degree from further deepening.
