Contact Lens Care Guide
Choosing the Right Contact Lenses
Selecting the appropriate type of contact lenses is the first step toward proper care. Whether you opt for daily disposables, bi-weekly, or monthly lenses, our experienced optometrists can help you choose the best option based on your lifestyle, prescription, and eye health needs.
Proper Contact Lens Handling
Handling your contact lenses with care is crucial to prevent contamination and infection. Always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching your lenses. Avoid using tap water or saliva to clean your lenses, as these can introduce harmful bacteria. Instead, use a recommended contact lens solution to clean, rinse, and store your lenses properly.
Routine Cleaning and Disinfection
Regular cleaning and disinfection are essential to maintain the clarity and comfort of your contact lenses. Follow the recommended cleaning schedule provided by your eye doctor and replace your contact lens solution regularly. Remember to rinse your lenses thoroughly to remove any debris or protein buildup that can accumulate over time.
Storage and Replacement Schedule
Storing your contact lenses properly when not in use is crucial to prevent contamination and ensure their effectiveness. Use a clean contact lens case and fill it with fresh solution each time you store your lenses. Additionally, adhere to the recommended replacement schedule for your contact lenses to prevent discomfort and maintain optimal eye health.
