Contact lens care

Proper lens case cleaning and frequent case replacement are essential for minimizing the risk of contamination. Rinse the lens case and covers in hot running water. Lens cases should be replaced at least every three (3) months. 

  • Re-wetting Eye Drops¬†

Use Contacts Eye Drops for re-wetting contact lenses as needed to alleviate symptoms of lens dryness. 

  • Do not sleep with your contact lenses in your eyes¬†
  • Suggested wearing schedule for contact lenses is not more than 8 hours per day.¬†
  • Tap water should not be used for rinsing or storing lenses¬†

Tap water contains chlorine, minerals and metal particles, which can damage both the lenses and the eye. Most importantly, water contains micro-organisms, which can lead to serious infections of the eye. 

  • Don't Panic when removing lens or feeling lens is lost behind your eye¬†

The lens can NEVER get lost behind your eye. The lens should work itself around to where you can see it. If the lens does not work itself around, try putting some rewetting drops or a few drops of saline solution into your eye. Next, look up, down and from side to side to attempt to move the lens. You can also close your eyes and GENTLY move your finger over your eyelids around the socket of the eye to reposition the lens. This may help move the lens to where you can see it more easily. 

  • Put in your contact lenses before applying makeup¬†

To avoid contaminating your contact lens, put your contact lens with clean hands before applying makeup. When removing your makeup, be sure that you wash and dry your hands. Once you have done this, remove your contact lenses and then remove your makeup. 

  • Remove your lenses immediately if you develop unusual pain, experience stinging, redness, unusual blurred vision, discharge or light sensitivity.¬†

Contact lens discomfort can occur for a variety of reasons.First remove the lens to ensure it is not inside out. Try flipping the lens the other way. If you notice any of the above symptoms, immediately remove your lenses. If the lens is damaged, do not put the lens back on your eye
