Contact lenses are the best optical instrument … if used properly. But they can create havoc at the same time if you are not careful enough . So get all the information , you need to know while using contact lenses.

 You should not wear contact lenses , if :

  • Frequent eye infections;
  • Severe allergies;
  • Dry eye that is resistant to treatment;
  • A very dusty work environment; or
  • An inability to handle and care for the lenses.

Contact lens safety tips:

  • DO make sure contact lenses and lens storage cases are cleaned and disinfected regularly, according to your eye doctor’s instructions.
  • DON’T place contact lenses in your mouth or use your saliva to wet them.
  • DO replace contact lenses regularly, according to your eye doctor’s directions.
  • DON’T “top off” old solution in your contact lens case. Instead, discard old solution and replace it with fresh solution.
  • DO always rub contact lenses when you clean them, even if using a “no-rub” solution.
  • Any eyedrops you use can interact with all types of contact lenses. It is best to avoid the use of eyedrops while wearing lenses, except for wetting drops recommended by your eye doctor.
  • Homemade saline (salt water) solutions have been linked to serious corneal infections and should not be used
  • If you accidentally sleep in them, don’t try to take them off right away.
  • Just about everyone can wear contacts, even if you have astigmatism.
  • If you’re going to get lenses just to alter your eye color, treat them with the same care you would a prescription.
  • Keep your case in tip top condition.
