Contact Lens Advice

The use of contact lenses has been a life changing experience for many people. However, it is very important that certain guidelines are adhered to:

  • You must always clean your hands when handling contact lens – this is very important, even for 1 day disposable lenses.
  • Do not continue wearing the lenses if you experience any irritation or discomfort. Remove immediately, insert some preservative-free lubricating drops (which should always be to hand) and contact your optician as soon as possible.
  • Never, never, NEVER store your lenses in tap water or rinse them with tap water.
  • Never lubricate your lenses with saliva. Improper treatment can leave you open to infection from bacteria and certain organisms which can be sight threatening.
  • Always adhere to the instructions given with regard to your cleaning and disinfecting system.
  • Having your lenses checked every 6 months is essential.
  • Do not wear your lenses for too long.
