Guidelines for Proper Contact Lens Care and Maintenance

Clean Hands

Always wash your hands thoroughly with mild soap and water before handling your contact lenses. Dry them with a lint-free towel to avoid any fibers getting onto the lenses.

Follow Your Eye Care Provider's Instructions

Adhere to the care routine and guidelines provided by your eye care professional or the manufacturer of your specific type of contact lenses.

Use Recommended Solutions

Use the recommended contact lens solutions to clean, disinfect, rinse, and store your lenses. Avoid using saliva or water to clean your lenses.

Regular Cleaning and Disinfecting

Clean your contact lenses daily using the prescribed solution. Rub the lenses gently with your fingers to remove any debris, proteins, or buildup.

Store Properly

Store your lenses in a clean lens case filled with fresh disinfecting solution. Ensure the case is cleaned and replaced regularly to prevent bacterial growth.

Replace as Directed

Replace your lenses as instructed, whether they are daily, weekly, monthly, or extended wear lenses. Do not wear lenses longer than recommended.

Avoid Sleeping with Lenses

Avoid sleeping while wearing your contact lenses, unless they are approved for extended wear. Sleeping with lenses increases the risk of eye infections and discomfort.

Handle with Care

Be gentle when inserting and removing lenses to avoid tearing or damaging them. Avoid touching the lens with your nails.

Regular Check-ups

Schedule regular check-ups with your eye care provider to ensure your lenses fit properly and to monitor the health of your eyes.

Be Mindful of Makeup

Insert your lenses before applying makeup to prevent any makeup particles from getting trapped under the lens.

Avoid Water Contact

Avoid swimming, showering, or exposing your lenses to water (e.g., tap water, swimming pools, hot tubs) to reduce the risk of infections and potential damage to the lenses.

Follow the Right Sequence

Put on your contact lenses before applying any sprays, lotions, or perfumes to prevent these substances from coming into contact with your lenses.

By following these guidelines and maintaining good hygiene practices, you can ensure the proper care of your contact lenses and promote optimal eye health. Always consult your eye care professional for personalized advice and recommendations.
