The eye is one of the most important parts of your body. That is why you really need to take care of it. Contact lens users should take care of their lenses very well. Wearing a dirty and damaged lens may result in an eye infection or other eye problems. Caring for your lenses is an easy task.

Here are some basic contact lens care tips. Make sure that your hands are clean before putting on or removing your lens. Wash your hands with mild soap and wipe it dry using a lint-free cloth. Keep your fingernails short to avoid scratching your lens, as well as your eyes. It is a good idea to put on your lenses first before applying cosmetics. If possible, use hypoallergenic makeup. Before putting your lens on, you can make a quick cleaning. To do this, place the lens in the palm of your hand, drop some solutions. Using your other hand’s index finger, gently rub the lens. Rinse the lens by dropping some more solutions.

Never use tap water to soak or clean your lenses. Always use contact lens solutions to disinfect and soak your lenses. Once you already placed the solution in the storing case and already used it throw it away because it is designed for single use only. Whatever type of contact lenses you will use, all of them will eventually acquire protein deposits. Clean your contact lenses using products recommended by your eye doctor. Also, clean your storing case so that the lenses will not be contaminated. Storage case should be replaced every three months.

Always remove your daily wear lenses before going to sleep so that your eyes can rest and your lenses will not be damaged. Extended wear contact lenses can be continuously worn, but for a certain number of days only. Never share your lenses with other people.
