Making Your Practice More Family Focused

Have you ever wondered why some families flock to certain practices year after year? When I first started practicing medicine, I realized that it was difficult to provide a great level of care for different age groups in the same office. If the rooms were painted like a storybook for the kids, it seemed to frustrate the adults. However, after years of trying different things, I have been able to develop a formula that works well for my business. If you have been struggling to improve your own practice, take a few minutes to browse through the articles on my website.

What To Do If Your Contact Lens Is Sliding

by Monica Reynolds

When a contact lens is right for you, you can tell right away. Contact lenses that are properly designed based upon your prescription needs won't slide, become blurry, or cause discomfort for your eyes. However, if a contact lens that once worked well is now sliding, here are a few troubleshooting tips to figure out why and to resolve the problem.

Soak Lens

One of the biggest reasons for a contact lens to slide is that your contact or your eye have a moisture problem. If a contact lens becomes too try, it will lose its shape and not fit properly. If your eye is too dry, it may suck moisture out of your contact lens and you'll still end up with a contact that's too dry and doesn't fit properly.

To prevent these problems from happening, make sure that your contacts are properly soaked in contact lens cleaning solution prior to putting them in. Furthermore, you can use eyedrops or a medication prescribed by your eye doctor to help boost the amount of moisture your eyes produce normally.


Contacts that stop fitting properly often have experienced some level of damage. For example, a small tear in the lens may cause it to lose its shape and not fit properly.

Take a close look at your contacts in bright light, preferably with a magnifying glass. If you find evidence of a scratch or tear in the contact, stop using it immediately. It could potentially scratch your eye or get stuck under your eyelid if the lens is damaged. You can either hold onto the lens and bring it to your eye doctor or throw it away.

If there isn't any visible problem with the lens, move on to the next tip.

New Prescription

If you can't find a problem with your eyes or your lenses, chances are the issue is with your prescription. Over time, vision prescriptions often change. This can be due to your ability to see clearly changing, or even a factor like your blood pressure changing and altering the shape of your eye as a result. In either case, a simple visit to your eye doctor can answer whether or not you need a new prescription for your contacts.

Whether you want contact lenses for cosmetic reasons or because of their convenience, it can be a real nuisance to have one suddenly moving around on your eye. Don't ignore the problem; check these steps and then contact an eye doctor.
