• Why You Should Not Wear Contact Lenses

    You are not only a human being… you’re a microbial being that provides a home to nearly 100 trillion bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microorganisms that compose your body's microflora. Advancing science has made it quite clear that these organisms play a major role in your health, both mental and physical. Much of the research to date has focused on the role of microbes in your gut and skin health, but this is only the beginning. Your eyes have a microbiome, too, one that has been largely neglected by researchers to the extent that its functions remain unknown.1 A 2015 study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology has begun to piece together the puzzle, however, by examining the colonies of bacteria living on the eyes of people who wear contact lenses and those who do not. Their findings add to the growing knowledge that modern lifestyles are tinkering with our microbiomes… with potentially dangerous effects.

  • Why You Should Not Wear Contact Lenses

    Why i´ve been wearing soft contact lenses for 40 years.without problems But what do you advise people, who HAVE to wear them because there is no other solution? I´ ve got -7.5 and -8.5 on the other eye.. The new method of laser will not work at these strenght or better: it is not advised (as the cornea(?) will get to thin due to the needed correction. (So it IS possible to cut it approx in Half but what improvement is that?)) I wear soft contacts since 4 Decades now with no problems other than 2 Infections, one after a camping trip and quickly cured by antibiotics in 1978. The second one was in 2002 and i cured it literally in seconds(!) with 2 or 3 drops with self made colloidial silver. The ache had slowly been building up for a few days, so i knew i had to visit the doctor for some antibiotics before the weekend - only then i remembered i had just produced a batch of colloidial silver, why not used it on this? After a couple drops the ache which had been steadily growing for days, was gone in 20 - 30 Seconds, i could not believe it myself, but it happened.
