PROPER CARE & INSTRUCTIONS

The single best way to avoid eye infections is to follow proper lens care guidelines as prescribed by your eye care professional. In particular, including a “rub and rinse” step in the lens cleaning process, minimizing contact with water while wearing contact lenses and replacing the lens case frequently can help reduce the risk of infection.

 

Caring for Your Lenses:

Proper care of your contact lenses is essential to eye health.

  • Before handling contact lenses, wash your hands with soap and water, then rinse and dry them with a lint-free towel.
  • Minimise contact with water, including removing lenses before going swimming or in a hot tub.
  • Contact lenses should not be rinsed with or stored in water (tap or sterile water).
  • Do not put your lenses in your mouth to wet them. Saliva is not a sterile solution.
  • Do not use saline solution and rewetting drops to disinfect lenses. Neither is an effective or approved disinfectant.
  • Wear and replace contact lenses according to the schedule prescribed by your eye care professional.
  • Follow the specific contact lens cleaning and storage guidelines from your eye care professional and the solution manufacturer.
  • During cleaning, rub your contact lenses with your fingers, then rinse the lenses with solution before soaking them. This “rub and rinse” method is considered by some experts to be a superior method of cleaning, even if the solution you are using is a “no-rub” variety.
  • Rinse the contact lens case with fresh solution — not water. Then leave the empty case open to air dry
  • Keep the contact lens case clean and replace it regularly, at least every three months. Lens cases can be a source of contamination and infection. Do not use cracked or damaged lens cases.

Handle your contact lens solution with care.

  • Do not re-use old solution or “top off” the solution in your lens case.
  • Do not transfer contact lens solution into smaller travel-size containers. This can affect the sterility of the solution, which can lead to an eye infection.
  • Do not allow the tip of the solution bottle to come in contact with any surface, and keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
  • Disinfect your lenses before you wear them. In no case should you wear your lenses after storage for 30 or more days without re-disinfecting.

Taking Care of Your Eyes:

Contact lenses are safely used by millions of people every day, yet they do carry a risk of eye infection. Eye infections can lead to serious vision loss in some cases. Proper care of your eyes is just as important as proper lens care.

Factors contributing to infection can include:

  • Use of extended-wear lenses
  • Reduced tear exchange under the lens
  • Environmental factors
  • Poor hygiene.
  • Remove the contact lenses and consult an ophthalmologist immediately if you experience symptoms such as redness, pain, tearing, increased light sensitivity, blurry vision, discharge or swelling.
  • If you smoke, stop. Studies show that contact lens wearers who smoke have a higher rate of problems than nonsmokers.

Get regular eye exams. If you wear contact lenses, you should be examined by an eye care provider annually, and more often as needed
