The In’s and Out’s of Contact Lens Care

 

Contact lenses require proper treatment and care in order to be a safe and feasible option for those needing corrective eye wear. Improper care can lead to damaged contacts, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which occasionally results in blindness. Any individuals that are not capable of properly taking care of their contacts may want to consider an alternate form of corrective eye wear.

Not to worry, though… taking care of your contacts is easier than ever. With all-in-one solutions and disposable contacts, caring for your contacts is less expensive, requires less time and requires less trouble than before. However, there are some important instructions to be aware of.

First of all it is advised to consult with your optometrist to get individualized recommendations. Additionally, it's important that you don't switch care regimens without checking with your optometrist first. Some products can react with each other or with certain kinds of lenses and can harm your eyes. Our expert staff can help you determine the right treatment for your contact lenses.

Proper lens care necessitates cleaning and disinfecting your contacts once a day. Make sure to wash your hands before inserting or removing your lenses. This can be among the easiest routes for harmful bacteria to reach your body. Further, don't make the error of using saline to clean your lenses. Saline is only suitable for storing purposes, not cleaning. In addition, be sure to disinfect your case with all-in-one solution after every use and to let it air out between cleanings. Professionals recommend that you switch your case at least every three months.

It's true that there may be an assortment of lens care options, but armed with a little planning you can care for your lenses with ease, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!
