The Do’s and Don’ts of Caring for Your Contacts

 

Contact lens wearers need to be careful to treat their contacts adequately. Improper care can lead to damaged contacts, or or even serious eye infections or scratches, which on occasion results in vision loss. Any individuals that are not capable of properly taking care of their contact lenses may want to consider an alternative option for vision correction.

Don't worry, though... taking care of your lenses is easier than ever. With one-bottle treatments and disposable lenses, caring for your lenses is cheaper, takes less time and involves less trouble than in the past. Still, there are some important guidelines to be aware of.

Firstly it is advised to speak to your optometrist to receive personalized recommendations. In addition, make sure you don't change your care routine without checking with your optician first. Some solutions can react with each other or with certain kinds of lenses and can harm your eyes. Our expert staff can help you determine the proper care for your contacts.

Proper lens care requires cleaning and disinfecting your lenses once a day. It's important to do this as soon as you remove your lenses. Not only will clean contacts ensure that your eyes will be healthier, your lenses will feel more comfortable. Never touch solution bottle openings to any surface including your hands because it can dirty the solution. Do your best to avoid getting tap water on your contacts, including rinsing your lens container, as it sometimes transports a microorganism that can cause severe eye infections. And of course, remember to throw out your lenses after their intended use time to limit the likelihood of infection.

Yes, there may be an array of products out there, but with a little knowledge you can be sure you are treating your lenses properly, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!
