Recommendations for Contact Lens Users to Maintain Healthy Eyes
Contact lenses are an incredibly convenient way to correct vision but they require some extra care in handling and maintaining them clean. Here are a few recommendations to take proper care of contact lenses.
WASH YOUR HANDS REGULARLY
Wash your hands with a mild soap or disinfectant before touching your contact lenses. Your hands may look and feel clean, but there may be millions of bacteria hidden and can cause severe infections. So it’s important to wash your hands with soap and dry them well with a clean cloth.
TAKE THEM OUT, WHEN IN DOUBT
Although contact lenses are convenient for your eyes, sometimes it may cause reddening in eyes, swelling or any other minor complications. In such cases remove the lenses from your eyes and schedule an appointment with your eye doctor.
AVOID SLEEPING IN CONTACT LENSES
Whenever you are late at night, it’ll be easier for you to roll over and go to sleep in contact lenses. But, sleeping in lenses is the #1 risk factor for developing a contact lens-related eye infection. So, avoid wearing contact lenses while sleeping unless prescribed by a doctor.
REPLACE CONTACT LENSES
Old lens case can be contaminated with fungi that can cause eye infection. Can’t you remember the last time you bought a new contact lens? Are you using an old lens you found in your cabinet? Then, it’s the time to throw it away and buy a new one.
