Contact lens wearers must be sure to care for their contacts properly. Improper care can lead to damaged lenses, or or even serious eye infections or abrasions, which on occasion can lead to blindness. Any individuals that are not ready to take care of their contact lenses probably want to seek an alternate form of corrective eye wear.
Don't worry, though... proper lens care is easier than you may think. With all-in-one solutions and disposable contacts, taking care of your contacts is cheaper, requires less time and involves less effort than before. However, there are several essential instructions to keep in mind.
Firstly it is advised to consult with your optician to receive personalized recommendations. Additionally, it's important that you don't switch your care routine without asking your eye doctor first. Some solutions are not compatible with each other or with certain kinds of lenses and can damage your eyes. Our expert staff can help you decide on the proper care for your lenses.
Proper lens care necessitates cleaning and disinfecting your lenses once a day. Always rinse your hands with soap and water before touching your contacts. Your eyes can be one of the most direct routes for dirt and germs to enter your body. Further, don't make the mistake of using saline solution for cleaning or disinfecting your contacts. Saline solution should only be used for rinsing and storing soft lenses. Additionally, be careful to clean your lens case with all-in-one solution frequently and to let it air out between cleanings. Professionals advise that you replace your case at least four times a year.
It's true that there may be an array of products out there, but armed with a little knowledge you can care for your lenses with ease, ensuring healthier eyes and clearer vision!
