Contact Lens Tips
Wearing contact lenses will increase your risk of eye infections. All types of contact lenses reduce the amount of oxygen that reaches your eyes, which can promote infection. Proper cleaning and disinfection of your contact lenses is very important. Here are some tips:
- Always wash, rinse and dry your hands thoroughly before handling your contacts
- Use multipurpose contact lens solutions with caution. While combination cleaning-disinfectant-storage solutions are convenient. If a solution has become discolored, do not use it. Discoloration might mean that the product is out of date or contaminated. To enhance the cleaning performance of the solution, gently rubbing the lenses for a few seconds.
- If you have daily wear contacts make sure to take them out before you go to sleep. Infections are more common if you extend the wear of your contacts.
- Follow your eye-care professional’s instructions for taking care of your lenses. Use only sterile products that are commercially prepared specifically for contact lens care, and make sure you use lens-care products formulated for the type of lenses you wear.
- Replace your contact lenses as recommended. If one or both lenses bother you before you’re due to replace them, get them checked or try a new set — if you have a supply.
- Replace your contact lens case every three to six months.
- Rinse your contact lens case every time the lenses are disinfected. Don’t “top off” old solution that’s already in the case.
