Lenses for barley in adults

Bar­ley is the process of acute puru­lent inflam­ma­tion in the area of ​​the seba­ceous gland or hair fol­li­cle of the eye­lash. This process is painful, accom­pa­nied by swelling of the eye­lid, so it needs to be treat­ed as soon as pos­si­ble. Is it pos­si­ble to wear lens­es at this time?

With the devel­op­ment of bar­ley, it is nec­es­sary to con­sult a doc­tor (in order to clar­i­fy the diag­no­sis and start treat­ment as soon as pos­si­ble). But what about those peo­ple who wear con­tact lens­es? Can they be used for bar­ley or is it worth tem­porar­i­ly aban­don­ing the use of this method of vision cor­rec­tion?

Among the key rea­sons for the devel­op­ment of bar­ley, there is pen­e­tra­tion into the seba­ceous or sweat glands at the base of the eye­lash­es of path­o­gen­ic flo­ra and, as a result, the for­ma­tion of a puru­lent inflam­ma­to­ry focus. Often this process occurs against the back­ground of a decrease in local immu­ni­ty or a weak­en­ing of the gen­er­al reac­tiv­i­ty of the body. In more than 90% of cas­es, inflam­ma­tion pro­vokes Staphy­lo­coc­cus aureus. Hypother­mia, colds, mal­nu­tri­tion, as well as vio­la­tion of per­son­al hygiene, touch­ing the eyes with unwashed hands, using low-qual­i­ty cos­met­ics or its untime­ly removal from the eyes can con­tribute to the appear­ance of bar­ley.

Also, the devel­op­ment of bar­ley can con­tribute to chron­ic inflam­ma­tion of the edges of the eye­lids in per­sons who wear con­tact lens­es, if the rules for using and car­ing for them are not fol­lowed. For exam­ple, if they vio­late the terms of wear­ing lens­es, do not mon­i­tor the expi­ra­tion date of the clean­ing solu­tion, do not rinse their stor­age acces­sories well, or do not change the liq­uid in the con­tain­er at all for sev­er­al days.

Is it possible to wear lenses with barley

Giv­en that bar­ley is an infec­tious inflam­ma­tion, the use of lens­es for the entire acute peri­od of the dis­ease is con­traindi­cat­ed. To cor­rect vision dur­ing treat­ment, it is rec­om­mend­ed to switch to glass­es.

There are well-found­ed rea­sons for such restric­tions: con­tact lens­es, like a for­eign body on the sur­face of the eye, on the one hand, can increase the sever­i­ty of the inflam­ma­to­ry reac­tion of the eye­lid, and on the oth­er hand, can con­tribute to the spread of infec­tion to oth­er parts of the eye­ball and its adnexa.

Very often, a devel­op­ing cha­lazion is mis­tak­en for bar­ley, which is a con­se­quence of inflam­ma­tion in the area of ​​u200bu200bthe clogged mei­bo­mi­an gland in the thick­ness of the car­ti­lagi­nous plate of the eye­lid. In appear­ance, this is most often a more deeply locat­ed round­ed for­ma­tion, which, unlike bar­ley, can reach quite large sizes. And for the elim­i­na­tion of which, it is often nec­es­sary to use sur­gi­cal meth­ods of treat­ment.

It is cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly impos­si­ble to try to squeeze out or remove the abscess on your own — this can lead to the spread of infec­tion and the for­ma­tion of more seri­ous inflam­ma­to­ry process­es, up to pass­ing to the peri­or­bital tis­sue.

How to choose lens­es for the eyes
In the mod­ern world, many peo­ple refuse to wear glass­es in favor of con­tact lens­es. With the right selec­tion, they are com­fort­able to wear and fair­ly easy to care for. But it’s impor­tant to choose the right ones.

Which lenses are better to choose for barley

With the devel­op­ment of bar­ley, it is worth aban­don­ing any lens­es, even one-day ones.

As the process sub­sides and pass­es (by about 7–10 days from the onset of inflam­ma­tion), it will be pos­si­ble to return to con­tact cor­rec­tion. It is rec­om­mend­ed 2–3 weeks after inflam­ma­tion to use dai­ly lens­es that do not require main­te­nance and are safer in terms of infec­tion.
