一般我們說的隱形眼鏡,英文是 Contact lens
而 Lens 原是「鏡片;鏡頭」的意思,後來也可以直接指隱形眼鏡

 

現代近視族比例越來越高,年齡層也逐漸下降,大家為了方便、美觀而選擇隱形眼鏡,不過因配戴隱形眼鏡,導致健康亮紅燈的也是大有人在,除了一般建議每日配戴不宜超過8小時,隱形眼鏡還有哪些需要注意的地方呢? 快跟著小編一起來了解 

 

 

7 Safety Tips For Those Who Wear Contact Lenses

 

1. Before you reach your lenses with a hand, wash it, and keep eye stuff in a right clean place. Touching lenses with dirty hands can end up with pinkeye infection which can even leave you blind.

 

接觸隱形眼鏡前,務必先洗手,並將它放置在清潔過的容器中。若用了不乾淨的手佩戴鏡片,當心結膜炎找上門。

 

■ End up with 以…告終
■ Pinkeye (n.) 傳染性結膜炎

 

 

2. Allergic people can make their symptoms worse by wearing lenses, because pollen and dander can get directly to the eyeball with the sticky silicon When you suffer bad symptoms, change to glasses, and if you can’t live without lenses (nothing bad with it), just try to buy new ones more often and do a good cleaning.

 

對於容易過敏的人,隱形眼鏡可能帶來更大的風險,因為花粉和皮屑等過敏源容易附著在鏡片上,使過敏症狀更加嚴重。最糟的情況就是那些離不開隱形眼鏡又過敏的人(是在說小編我嗎)

請經常更換鏡片,並注意清潔,或改用拋棄式較佳。

 

■ Allergic (adj.) 過敏的.
 Be allergic to sth 對…過敏
■ Pollen (n.) 花粉
■ Dander (n.) 毛屑

 

 

3. Don’t forget eye drops – you have to obtain a sample anywhere you spend your time, at home or at work. It’s impossible to see through dry lenses, and they really can stretch the eyeball. Use the liquid as often as you can, and buy ones with antihistamine effect if you are allergic.

 

保持鏡片濕潤,隨身攜帶輕便型小罐裝眼藥水,在辦公室、家裡也都最好擺一瓶。

乾澀的鏡片不但讓我們看不清楚,甚至使眼球受損。會過敏的人建議購買抗組織胺成分的藥水。

 

■ Eye drop (n.) 眼藥水
■ Stretch (v.) 損傷

 

 

4. Wear lenses only as long as it is written on the pack. If it says two weeks, destroy them after 14 days, not longer. Lenses accumulate and absorb protein deposits which are great place for germs, and can cause pain because of irritation.

 

注意隱形眼鏡明訂的期限,以雙週拋而言,打開超過14天即不應再做使用,否則鏡片容易形成蛋白質堆積,易滋生細菌,造成眼睛不適,嚴重甚至引起發炎。

 

■ Protein (n.) 蛋白質
■ Deposit (n.) 堆積,沉澱物
 The country is short of known deposits of coal.
 這個國家缺少已開發的煤礦。
■ Germ (n.) 微生物;細菌;病菌
 Disease is usually caused by germs.
 疾病常由病菌造成。
■ Irritation (n.) 刺激;疼痛;發炎

 

 

5. When in shower or swimming pool, take them off. Silicon is a great absorbent, and it may take in any infection or parasite in air or water.

 

洗澡和游泳時別戴隱形眼鏡,由於水中存在許多細菌和寄生蟲是我們肉眼看不見的,且泳池水更含有化學物質,可能會對眼睛造成感染。
(小編也聽說過,下水前後點含抗生素成分的眼藥水,具有護眼作用)

 

■ Absorbent (n.) 吸收劑;吸收物

■ Parasite (n.) 寄生蟲

 

 

 

6. Let your eyes rest from contacts wearing. It can be really hard when you got used to a good sight every step, but your eyes deserve some free breathing. Choose breathable lenses and put them off for a couple of hours each day to give oxygen to your tired eyeballs.

 

給眼睛適度休息,對於習慣無時無刻戴著隱形眼鏡的人,這可能很困難,不過眼睛真的是需要適當休息的。選擇透氧性較佳的隱形眼鏡,並且每天給自己幾個小時的時間換上普通眼鏡,讓疲勞的眼球能夠呼吸。

 

■ A couple of 兩個,幾個,一對
 The festival lasts a couple of days.
 節慶活動延續兩天。

 

 

7. Meet your ophthalmologist every year to check your prescription. With no up-to-date recommendations you won’t be able to buy lenses. And if your eyes got weaker, you mustn’t stick to old lenses – it may cause headaches and sight problems.

 

每年定期看一次眼科,檢測自己的視力狀態。沒有最新的處方單,最好不要隨意購買隱形眼鏡。如果感覺度數不夠了,千萬不要繼續戴著原來的眼鏡,否則度數不足可能會造成頭痛和其他視力問題。

 

■ Ophthalmologist (n.) 眼科醫師
■ Prescription (n.) 處方
 The prescription of drugs is a doctor's responsibility.
 開處方是醫生的職責。
■ Up to date (adj.) 最新的;流行的
 Up to date we have no news of his arrival.
 到現在為止,我們還未得到有關他到達的消息。
■ Recommendation (n.) 勸告,建議
■ Stick to 堅持;衷于 = cling to, adhere to
 We have decided to stick to our previous plan.
 我們已經決定按先前計劃執行。
