Dr. PG :

There are many things to consider while using contact lens

Dr. PG :

The most important thing to consider is the technical skills required to insert and remove the lens

Dr. PG :

Other than this the contact lens can cause irritation in the eye,

Dr. PG :

and they may rarely lead to complications like a lost lens in the eye, or breakage etc too
