Contact Lens Care Tips

  1. Always wash your hands: Before handling contact lenses, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, then dry them with a lint-free towel to avoid transferring dirt or bacteria to your lenses.

  2. Clean and disinfect your lenses daily:

    • Remove one lens from your eye and place it in your clean, dry palm.
    • Apply a few drops of contact lens cleaning solution (recommended by your eye care professional) onto the lens.
    • Gently rub the lens with your index finger in a circular motion for about 20 seconds on both sides to remove dirt, debris, and bacteria.
    • Rinse the lens thoroughly with the cleaning solution or saline solution to remove any remaining debris.
    • Place the clean lens into a lens case filled with fresh disinfecting solution.
    • Repeat this process for the other lens.
  3. Replace your contact lens case regularly: Contact lens cases can harbor bacteria and fungi over time. It is recommended to replace your lens case at least every three months or according to your eye care professional's advice.

  4. Follow the prescribed wearing schedule: Adhere to the wearing schedule prescribed by your eye care professional for your specific type of contact lenses (1 day, bi-weekly, 1 month, etc.). Over-wearing contact lenses can lead to eye irritation or infections.

  5. Do not sleep in your contact lenses unless prescribed: Wearing contact lenses overnight can increase the risk of eye infections. Only sleep in your lenses if your eye care professional prescribes extended-wear lenses and has approved overnight use.

  6. Avoid using tap water or saliva on your lenses: Tap water and saliva can contain bacteria and other impurities that can cause eye infections. Always use contact lens cleaning solutions or saline solutions recommended by your eye care professional.

  7. Keep your lenses away from harsh chemicals and heat: Avoid exposing your contact lenses to harsh chemicals, such as chlorine in swimming pools, or extreme heat, as it can damage the lens material.

  8. Remove your contact lenses before swimming or showering: Water can contain bacteria and other impurities that can adhere to your lenses and cause eye infections. Use daily disposable lenses or wear goggles if you must wear contact lenses while swimming.

  9. Attend regular eye check-ups: Schedule regular eye check-ups with your eye care professional to ensure your prescription is up-to-date and to monitor your eye health.

  10. Know when to replace your lenses: Follow the recommended replacement schedule for your contact lenses (1 day, bi-weekly, 1 month, etc.). Wearing expired or damaged lenses can cause eye irritation or infections.

By following these contact lens care tips, you can maintain the cleanliness of your lenses, promote good eye health, and prolong the life of your contact lenses.
