How to properly clean your contact lenses

Properly cleaning your contacts can have a huge impact on your daily comfort in your contacts lenses and most importantly, reduce the risk of getting a serious eye infection.

Here are some tips to keep your contact lenses and your eyes in good shape:

  • Wash your hands before handling your contact lenses.

  • Always rub the lenses on both sides in your palm with a small bit of solution after taking out.

    • Perform this step even when it says no rub or using Clear Care​.

  • Use fresh solution every night. 

    • Dump the solution in the morning and let the case dry​.

  • Only use the solution your doctor recommends.

    • Never use water or your saliva to rewet or clean your contact lenses, both can cause infections.

    • I recommend Clear Care since it deep cleans and kills more bacteria than multi-purpose solution.

       

  • Keep your contact lens case clean and replace it at least every 3 months.

  • Take your contact lenses out right when you get home from work so you aren't in a rush before bedtime, plus it gives more time for your eyes to be out of contact which can help your corneal health.

If you notice signs of redness, light sensitivity, feel like something is in your eye, irritation, change of vision, or pain, contact our office right away!

If you can't keep up with the cleaning steps in order to keep you eyes safe or your lenses are uncomfortable even after following the instructions, that is a sign to move to daily disposable lenses.

Daily disposable lenses are the most convenient, safest, and most comfortable lenses for our eyes.
