Caring for Contacts


It can be somewhat confusing navigating the eye care aisle of most drug stores. Nevertheless as daunting as this can be, it's crucial to understand correct contact lens care. Those who aren't correctly caring for their contact lenses, risk developing a variety of eye infections including some that may cause blindness. Improper care can lead to damaged lenses, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which rarely but sometimes results in blindness. Any individuals that are not ready to take care of their contact lenses may want to seek an alternative option for vision correction.

Not to worry, though... proper lens care is easier than ever. With ''multipurpose'' treatments and disposable lenses, tending to your lenses is cheaper, requires less time and requires less effort than before. Still, there are some essential guidelines to keep in mind.

Firstly it's always best to consult with your optometrist to get individualized recommendations. In addition, it's important that you don't switch care regimens without checking with your optician first. Certain solutions can react with each other or with certain kinds of lenses and can damage your eyes. Our expert staff can help you determine the correct care for your contact lenses.

Proper lens care requires cleaning and disinfecting your contacts once a day. Make sure to do this immediately after you remove your lenses. Not only will clean contacts ensure that your eyes will be safer, your lenses will feel better. Don't touch solution bottle tips to any surface including your hands since it can contaminate the solution. Do your best to prevent getting sink water on your lenses, including rinsing your lens case, as it sometimes transports a microorganism that can cause serious eye infections. Lastly, don't forget to throw out your lenses after their intended use time to reduce the risk of infection.

It's true that there may be an assortment of products out there, but armed with a little planning you can care for your lenses with ease, ensuring healthier eyes and clearer vision!
