LENSES

Things you should always do:
  • Always handle your lenses with clean, dry hands. Wash, rinse, and dry your hands with a lint-free towel before touching your lenses.
  • Clean & disinfect your contact lenses with fresh solution each time you remove them. Always remember to use fresh solution.
  • Always refill your lens case with new solution after every use.
  • Insert contact lenses before applying makeup and take them out before removing makeup
  • Keep your contact lens well lubricated at all times, either with artificial tears in your eyes, or stored in solution in your contact lens case
  • Remove contact lenses before taking a shower,  swimming, or doing anything where water gets in your eyes.
  • Recommended to change the lens solution every 30 days even if you're not wearing the lens. 
  • Always remove lenses before going to sleep.
Things you should never do:
  • Use tap water or saliva on your contact lenses
  • Rinse or store contacts in water (tap or sterile water). 
  • Use saline solution or re-wetting drops to disinfect your lenses. They are not disinfectants.
  • Wear your contact lenses if they have been stored for 30 days or longer without re-disinfecting.
  • Insert contact lenses if they are damaged
  • Keep contact lenses longer than 12 months from when you take it out of the blister packs
  • Use contact lens solution after its expiry date
  • Wear another person’s contact lenses
  • Sleep with your contact lenses in
  • Place contact lenses on top of a television or any warm or hot appliance

If there is discomfort when you put in your lenses, look closely at the lens. If the lens is in any way damaged, do not put the lens back on your eye. Place the lens in the storage case and contact us. If the lens has dirt, an eyelash, or other foreign body on it, you should thoroughly clean, rinse, and disinfect the lenses; then reinsert them.
