Guide to Contact Lens Care

  • Before handling the lens, always wash your hands with soap and water. Next, dry your hands with a lint-free towel.
  • To avoid confusion of right and left contact lens always handle the same lens each time. For example, if one is right-handed remove the right lens first.
  • Each time you remove the lenses, clean and disinfect according to your doctor’s instructions.
  • If you wear makeup, always apply it after inserting your lenses.
  • Remove contact lenses before removing makeup.
  • Always read instruction on how to use your contact lens solution.
  • Always use contact solution before the expiry date marked on the bottle.
  • Always dispose of your lens case every three months. Keep your case clean by rinsing in hot water and letting it air dry.
  • Never use tap water to rinse your contact lens.
  • Never swim in a public pool or hot tub without the use of goggles. To avoid infection it is best to dispose the contact lens after these activities.
  • Never sleep with your contact lens unless advised by your doctor.
  • Never put a contact lens on an eye that is “red” or if you are experiencing discharge from the eye.
  • Do not substitute contact solutions without the approval of your doctor.
  • Always maintain regularly scheduled follow-up appointments with your doctor.
