Contact Lenses Care

Know more about taking care of your contact lenses

It should always be a habit to take good care of your lenses, making sure that they are clean, and undamaged.

Insertion of Contact Lenses

Note: It is good to get in the habit of always working with one contact lens at a time and always in the same order to avoid mix-ups. Always use your finger tips to handle contact lenses (avoid fingernails and sharp objects). Before inserting your contact lenses check to make sure that they are clean, wet, and damage-free.

  1. Wash and dry your hands with a lint-free towel (do not use moisturizing soaps).
  2. Remove your contact lens from storage case and rinse with saline/multi-purpose solution to remove debris.
  3. Always make sure contact lenses are not inverted before insertion. Contact lenses will have a rounded edge and will curl towards the center when filled with saline/multi-purpose solution.
  4. Place contact lens on tip of index finger
  5. Use middle finger of your other hand to pull and hold upper lid to avoid blinking.
  6. Pull down lower eyelid using middle finger of inserting hand.
  7. Looking straight in the mirror place contact lens directly on center of eye.
  8. Slowly release eyelid and close eye for a moment to allow contact lens to settle.

Removal of Contact Lenses

  3. Use middle finger of other hand to pull and hold upper lid to avoid blinking.
  4. Bring index finger close to eye until you touch lower edge of contact lens.
  5. Slide contact lens down to lower white part of your eye.
  6. Gently squeeze contact lens between your thumb and index finger and remove it from your eye.

Learn How to Care for Your Lenses

Good hygienic habits are important for good eye health. Never sleep in your lenses unless an eye care professional instructs you to. You should also keep all water away from your lenses. Remove them before showering, swimming, or using a hot tub and ensure to never rinse or store your lenses in water.

Caring for your lenses and supplies is integral to extending the lifespan of your contacts. Replace them as often as recommended by your eye care provider and discard used solution from the contact case before cleaning it with fresh solution (never water) every day. When not in use, store your contact lens case upside down with the caps off and replace your case every 3 months.

Be prepared and be sure to listen to your eye care provider. You should be visiting an eye care provider as often as recommended by your primary healthcare provider. Remove your lenses immediately and call a professional if you experience eye pain, discomfort, redness, or blurred vision. Finally, always carry a back-up pair of glasses in case contact lenses need to be removed.
