The Do’s and Don’ts of Contact Lens Care


Contact lens wearers need to be careful to treat their contacts properly. Improper care can lead to ripped or torn contacts, or even worse, eye infections or abrasions, which rarely but sometimes results in vision loss. Any individuals that are not ready to take care of their contacts probably want to seek an alternate form of vision correction.

Not to worry, though... taking care of your contacts is simpler than it may seem. With all-in-one treatments and disposable lenses, taking care of your contacts is cheaper, takes less time and requires less hassle than before. However, there are several necessary instructions to keep in mind.

First of all it is recommended to speak to your eye doctor to receive individualized advice. In addition, make sure you don't switch your care routine without checking with your optician first. Some products are not compatible with each other or with specific lenses and can harm your eyes. Our expert staff can help you decide on the right treatment for your contacts.

All eye care professionals recommend cleaning and disinfecting your lenses daily. Make sure to wash your hands prior to inserting or removing your contacts. Your eyes can be one of the easiest places for dirt and germs to enter your body. Further, don't make the mistake of using saline to clean your contacts. Saline solution is only suitable for rinsing and storing soft lenses. Additionally, be sure to clean your case with disinfecting solution frequently and to let it air out between uses. Eye Doctors advise that you replace your case at least four times a year.

It's true that there may be an array of lens care options, but armed with a little planning you can be sure you are caring for your lenses properly, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!
