If you are new to wearing contacts or if you have worn them for years, properly caring for your contact lenses is an important facet to using them safely.
If you do not wear or care for them as prescribed by your family eye care provider, you could cause serious damage to your eyes.
It is recommended you always wash and dry your hands before handling your contacts. Lenses should also be cleaned as required and stored in a protective case. All of these tips can help keep your eyes free from infection or irritation.
When you are cleaning your contacts make sure to always use fresh solution. Plus, you should always use the proper solutions as recommended.
Do not use saline solution, for example, to disinfect your contacts since this is not what they are designed to do.
It is also recommended to wear your contact lenses only as long as they are designed. If they are daily disposable lenses, then do not wear them more than once.
It’s important that whichever type of contacts you wear that they are taken out before you go to sleep each night.
By not properly caring for your lenses you can cause serious eye issues. Contact your Wooster eye professionals Pycraft Family Eye Care if you have other questions while wearing contact lenses.
