Contact Lens Care

 

Contact lens wearers need to be sure to treat their contact lenses properly. Improper care can lead to damaged lenses, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which rarely but sometimes results in vision loss. People of all ages that are not responsible enough to take care of their contacts probably want to consider an alternate form of corrective eye wear.

Don't worry, though… taking care of your lenses is simpler than you may think. With one-bottle solutions and one-use lenses, taking care of your lenses is less expensive, requires less time and involves less trouble than before. Still, there are several necessary instructions to keep in mind.

Firstly it is advised to speak to your optometrist to receive personalized advice. Additionally, make sure you don't switch care regimens without consulting with your eye doctor first. Some products are not compatible with each other or with specific lenses and can damage your eyes. Our expert staff can help you determine the right treatment for your lenses.

Proper lens care necessitates cleaning and disinfecting your lenses daily. Always rinse your hands with soap and water before touching your contacts. This can be among the most direct places for dirt and germs to reach your body. Further, don't make the common error of using saline for cleaning or disinfecting your contacts. Saline is only suitable for rinsing and storing soft lenses. In addition, be sure to clean your case with multi-purpose solution frequently and to let it air out between uses. Eye Doctors recommend that you replace your case at least four times a year.

Yes, there may be an array of lens care options, but with a little planning you can be sure you are caring for your lenses correctly, ensuring healthier eyes and clearer vision!
