Proper Care of Contact Lenses

  • Wear contact lenses as prescribed by your eye doctor.
  • Always wash your hands so that you don’t transfer dirt and germs to your eye.
  • Try to avoid moisturizing soaps, as they are not good for contact lenses. Dry your hands with a lint-free towel.
  • While cleaning your lens, it’s recommends that you rub the lens in the palm of your hand with a few drops of solution, then rinse the lens again to remove the loosened debris.
  • Place the lens in your clean lens case or lens holder and fill with fresh solution; don’t “top off” your old solution.
  • If you develop sudden vision loss, persistent blurred vision, light flashes, eye pain, infection, swelling, unusual redness or irritation; remove your contact lenses and discontinue use until you see your eye doctor.
  • See your doctor regularly to check your contact lens prescription.
