Keratoconus and Wearing Contact Lenses

If your eyes have a conical shape, this scatters the light as it comes in, creating blurred or distorted vision, increased sensitivity to light, glare and mild eye irritation - this is an eye condition known as Keratoconus. However, even with this condition, you may be able to wear contact lenses, specially suited to address this issue.

Is There a Difference Between Dry Eyes and Red Eyes?

There are times that your eyes may be red and other times they may be dry as well. Persistent dryness, scratchiness and a burning sensation on your eyes are common symptoms of dry eye syndrome. These symptoms alone may be enough for your eye doctor to diagnose dry eye syndrome. Chronic dry eye can cause the surface of the eye to become inflamed and irritated, making your eyes look red. Your eye doctor at Monji Optometry can help with treatment options.
