Contact lenses necessitate proper treatment and care to be considered a safe and effective choice for individuals selecting a vision aid. Improper care can lead to ripped or torn contacts, or even worse, eye infections or scratches, which rarely but sometimes results in vision loss. Any individuals that are not capable of properly taking care of their contact lenses probably want to opt for an alternative option for vision correction.
Don't worry, though… taking care of your contacts is easier than you may think. With all-in-one treatments and one-use lenses, caring for your contacts is less expensive, requires less time and requires less trouble than before. However, there are several essential instructions to be aware of.
Firstly it's always best to consult with your optician to get personalized recommendations. Additionally, make sure you don't switch care regimens without checking with your eye doctor first. Certain products can react with each other or with specific lenses and can harm your eyes. Our experienced staff can help you determine the correct treatment for your contacts.
Proper lens maintenance requires cleaning and disinfecting your contacts daily. Make sure to do this immediately after you remove your lenses. Not only will clean contacts ensure that your eyes will be healthier, your contacts will feel better. Never touch solution bottle openings to any area including your eye since it can contaminate the solution. Try to avoid getting tap water on your lenses, including washing your lens container, as it sometimes carries a microorganism that can cause serious eye infections. Lastly, remember to throw out your lenses when their time is up to reduce the risk of infection.
Yes, there may be an array of products out there, but with a little professional guidance you can care for your lenses with ease, ensuring healthier eyes and clearer vision!
