A Guide to Caring for Contact Lenses

 

Contact lens wearers must be sure to treat their contact lenses adequately. Improper care can lead to ripped or torn contacts, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which occasionally results in vision loss. Any individuals that are not capable of properly taking care of their contact lenses may want to opt for an alternative option for vision correction.

Don't worry, though... contact lens care is simpler than you may think. With all-in-one solutions and one-use lenses, taking care of your lenses is cheaper, requires less time and involves less hassle than before. However, there are some important guidelines to keep in mind.

Firstly it is advised to consult with your optician to get personalized recommendations. Additionally, make sure you don't switch your care routine without asking your optometrist first. Some products can react with each other or with certain kinds of lenses and can damage your eyes. Our expert staff can help you determine the proper treatment for your contact lenses.

Proper lens maintenance necessitates cleaning and disinfecting your lenses once a day. Make sure to wash your hands prior to touching your lenses. This is one of the most direct places for dirt and germs to enter your body. Further, don't make the error of using saline solution for cleaning or disinfecting your contacts. This is only suitable for rinsing and storing soft lenses. You should also be sure to disinfect your lens case with multi-purpose solution after every use and to keep it open and dry between uses. Experts advise that you replace your case at least every three months.

It's true that there may be an array of products out there, but with a little professional guidance you can care for your lenses with ease, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!
