The In’s and Out’s of Caring for Your Contacts

 

It can be fairly baffling shopping in the eye care section of some pharmacies. But as daunting as it is, it's crucial to learn correct lens care. Those who aren't appropriately caring for their contact lenses, risk contracting a number of eye infections including some that may cause blindness. Improper care can lead to ripped or torn lenses, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which on occasion can lead to blindness. People of all ages that are not capable of properly taking care of their contact lenses may want to consider an alternative option for corrective eye wear.

Don't worry, though… taking care of your contacts is simpler than ever. With all-in-one solutions and one-use lenses, tending to your lenses is cheaper, requires less time and involves less effort than before. However, there are some important instructions to be aware of.

Firstly it's always best to speak to your eye doctor to get personalized advice. Additionally, it's important that you don't change your care routine without asking your eye doctor first. Some solutions can react with each other or with specific lenses and can damage your eyes. Our expert staff can help you decide on the right treatment for your lenses.

All eye doctors recommend cleaning and disinfecting your contacts daily. It's important to do this as soon as you remove your lenses. Not only will clean contacts ensure that your eyes will be safer, your lenses will feel better. Never touch solution bottle openings to any area including your eye since it can contaminate the solution. Try to avoid getting tap water on your contacts, including rinsing your lens container, as it often carries a microorganism that can cause severe eye infections. And of course, remember to throw out your lenses after their intended use time to reduce the risk of infection.

Yes, there may be an assortment of products out there, but armed with a little professional guidance you can care for your lenses with ease, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!
