Tips for Contact Lens Care
Cleaning and care of your contacts varies depending on your specific lenses. To avoid eye infection, proper contact lens hygiene is very important. Below you’ll find links for different types of lenses. If you have questions, be sure to speak with one of our contact lens technicians.
These are general instructions. You should always follow the specific directions given to you by your contact lens provider.
We recommend following these steps when caring for your lenses:
- Wash your hands before putting in your contacts
- Use high-quality lens cleaning solutions to clean your contacts after each use; do not reuse cleaning solutions as it may contain bacteria
- Do not use your own saliva, tap water or chlorinated water to clean your lenses; these unsterile water sources may contain bacteria
- Wash your lens case regularly with cleaning solution and allow it to dry before closing it
- Only sleep in extended wear contacts
- Replace your lens case every three months to avoid bacteria build-up
- Don’t wear contacts if your eyes are irritated or if the contact appears damaged; this can lead to infection or a scratched cornea
