A contact lens is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye for medical, cosmetic or therapeutic reasons.
For whichever reason they are worn, contacts, there are ways in which they can or cannot be handled.
Wash and dry your hands before handling your lenses.
Discard lenses and solutions that are past their expiry date.
Remove lenses first before wiping out make-up. Always wear lenses before putting on make-up.
Replace the contact lenses according to the schedule recommended by your optometrist.
Store lenses in the proper lens storage case and replace your storage case on a routine basis.
Don’t use tap water, or any other water, on your lenses or lens case.
Don’t wet your lenses with saliva.
Don’t put a lens on the eye if it falls on the floor or other surface without cleaning it.
Don’t share lens with others. Sharing lens can spread bacteria and infections such as pink eye.
Don’t sleep with your contacts on unless specifically advised to by your practitioner.
Don’t use hand lotion prior to inserting your contact lenses; they can coat and ruin your lens.
Don’t over wear your contact lenses. Follow the practitioner schedule.
