Tips for Contact Lens Care

To avoid eye infection, proper contact lens hygiene is very important. We recommend following these steps when caring for your lenses:

  • Wash your hands before putting in your contacts
  • Use high quality lens cleaning solutions to clean your contacts after each use; do not reuse cleaning solutions as it may contain bacteria
  • Do not use your own saliva, tap water or chlorinated water to clean your lenses; these unsterile water sources may contain bacteria
  • Wash your lens case regularly with cleaning solution and allow it to dry before closing it
  • Replace your lens case every three months to avoid bacteria build-up
  • Don’t wear contacts if your eyes are irritated or if the contact appears damaged; this can lead to infection or a scratched cornea
