1

Risk of infection varies somewhat depending on the type of contact lens. Single-use daily disposable lenses are the safest type of soft contact lens, in terms of reducing the risk of infection. Rigid gas permeable lenses are a safer alternative than any type of soft contact lens. Your ophthalmologist can help you decide which type of lens is right for you.

Regardless of the type you decide on, proper care of the lenses is essential to eye health.

How to Wear contact lens in Accurate Way?

Rinsing:

  • Rinse each side of your lens for five seconds with solution.
    Based upon your individual tear chemistry and lens-wearing schedule, your eye care professional may recommend additional care for your lenses such as placing 3 drops of this solution on each lens surface and rubbing for 20 seconds before rinsing. This ensures that your lenses are free of debris and deposits. Make sure to follow the routine your eye care professional recommends.

Disinfect:

  • Place your lenses in a clean lens case.
  • Fill the case with fresh  solution.
  • Soak your lenses for at least four hours.*

Now your lenses are ready for the next time you need them.

Store:

  • Never reuse solution.
  • Replace your lens case every month.
Can You Wear Contact Lenses in the Shower?
Also, you have a lens being closed against the eye — any germs on the lens are being slammed against the cornea.” Don’t wear your contactlenses in the shower or while swimming. Lakes, rivers, sea water, swimming pools, and even tap water can all harbor an organism called acanthamoeba, which can cause eye infection.
How do I know if my contacts are inside out?
The trick is to place the lens on your finger so that a cup is formed. Then hold the lens up directly in front of your eyes so you’re looking at the side of the cup. If the lens forms a “U” with the top edges flared out, it’sinside out. If it forms just a “U,” it’s in the correct position.
How long can you wear contact lenses?
In general most soft contact lenses have a recommended wearing time of not more than 10-12 hours continuously for up to 5 days a week. It’s recommended that you wear glasses for a couple of days a week to ensure that your eyes receive more than enough oxygen to stay healthy.
How do you remove soft contact lenses?
To remove soft contact lenses, look upward or sideways while you pull down on your lower eyelid. With a finger, gently maneuver the lens onto the white of your eye. There, you can very gently pinch the lens together with your index finger and thumb and lift it off the eye.
