Contact Lens Tips & Tricks

-----------------------------------------------------------

The first thing that you should do before you get contacts is visit your doctor! By visiting your eye care professional, you can be sure that you will receive the right contact lenses for your eyes and, they can instruct you on how to properly care for them. Proper follow-up care by your eye care professional is essential to ensure eye health throughout your life. Over time, your eyes and lenses can change, often without symptoms or warning signs which may put you at risk for developing potentially serious complications. 

-----------------------------------------------------------

Different types of lenses are made for different wearing schedules. All contacts lenses should be taken out daily to provide the best possible eye health. Contact lenses should also be disposed at the proper time. For example, daily lenses should be disposed of every day while other lenses can last as long as 30 days. To protect your eyes from serious complications, it is important that you follow the wearing schedule that Doctors will provide you.

-----------------------------------------------------------

It is very important that you wash, rinse and dry your hands thoroughly each time you handle your lenses. Good hygiene helps to eliminate germs which can cause eye infections - especially for smokers. Do not insert a lens into an eye that is red, irritated or painful. 

-----------------------------------------------------------

Depending on the type of lens you are wearing, there are many different options for cleaning and disinfecting your lenses. Some lenses, such as daily disposable lenses, require little to no lens care - they are simply thrown away after each use. However, if you wear lenses that your eye care professional has recommended that you take out and re-insert into your eye, they should be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Proper care for your lenses can help your lenses stay clean and comfortable for you to wear.
