Contact lens use can be a bit scary at first but with proper precautions, it is easy and routine. Contact lens gives one freedom from spectacles. Contact lens gives a large field of view which is of great help while playing sports.

We share with you some tips on how to care for your eyes when using contact lenses.

  1. – Always wash and rinse your hands before handling lenses.
  2. – Use oil and fragrance-free soap and dry your hands with a lint-free cloth or tissues.
  3. – Clean your lenses before insertion and after removal only with recommended solutions by your doctor.
  4. – Remember the importance of good blinking. Regular and complete blinking will help you to keep the lens moist and clean.
  5. – Carry your storage case and solution with you all the time if possible.

  1. – Wear protective glasses or goggles if you are in a dusty environment, bike riding, gardening, sanding or grinding.
  2. – If you drop a lens clean and rinse with the solution before reapplying.
