How to Properly Handle Contact Lenses

Properly handling contact lenses is crucial to maintaining good eye health and preventing eye infections. Here are some general guidelines for handling contact lenses:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching your contact lenses.

  2. Remove one contact lens at a time, starting with the same eye every time to avoid mixing them up.

  3. Clean your contact lenses regularly using the recommended solution and methods for your specific type of lens.

  4. Store your contact lenses in a clean case and change the solution every day.

  5. Avoid using tap water or saliva to wet or clean your lenses, as this can introduce bacteria to your eyes.

  6. Do not wear your lenses longer than recommended or overnight, as this can cause irritation and increase the risk of infection.

  7. Avoid exposing your lenses to water, including swimming, showering, and hot tubs, as this can increase the risk of infection.

  8. Replace your contact lenses as recommended by your eye care professional.

If you experience any discomfort or irritation while wearing your contact lenses, remove them immediately and consult your eye care professional.
