Allergy and contact lenses - that hurts!

Wearing contact lenses and allergies don't go well together. Especially when contact lenses are causing eye itching, reddened eyes, inflammation and contact lens intolerance. EuroEyes can help you!

3.53 million people in Germany (14 years and older) wear contact lenses (source: Statista). However, almost one in five people in Germany suffers from hay fever and other allergies. More than half of the hay fever patients have the symptoms only or first on the eye. They have to fight with reddened, burning, itching or even swollen eyes. For many people, contact lenses are then no longer an option.

One solution is to bring the consultation in one of the EuroEyes eye clinics. A detailed examination of the eyes can provide information about the causes and treatment options for allergies.

Lens implantation - the method of choice

However, lens implantation or a laser surgery is often the method of choice. It corrects the visual defect permanently and thus makes it possible live without contact lenses. This does not eliminate the symptoms of allergies, but the problems with contact lenses and glasses are in the past. Click here to get all the information about ICL lens implantation.
