A Quick Guide To Wearing Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a great way for an individual to improve their vision, providing a discreet alternative to glasses while not requiring a surgical procedure. Contacts have also become a popular cosmetic accessory and are worn like makeup to enhance a person’s appearance, enabling people to change the visual appearance of their eyes when in costume or for aesthetic effect. But regardless as to whether you want to wear contact lenses to change your appearance or to aid your vision, there are a few guidelines you need to follow. 

Always purchase your contact lenses from a reputable seller

If you are purchasing contact lenses to correct your vision then it’s important that they are the right strength for your eyes. The best way to purchase contact lenses for your vision is to speak with your optometrist who will be able to advise you and check that your contact lenses meet your prescription. If you want to buy contact lenses for cosmetic reasons then you should also always buy them from a reputable company or seller as they will be going in your eyes and so could cause damage if they do not fit correctly.

 

Always wash your hands and be mindful of hygiene

Contact lenses are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, being moist and warm, the bacteria from your contact lenses can then cause eye infections, so always wash your hands thoroughly before putting your lenses in or taking them out. Washing your hands will also help to remove any lint particles that can cause discomfort if they get between your lens and your eye.

 

Use specialist contact lens solution

If your contact lenses are not disposable then you will need contact lens solution with which to wash them after use and to store them in inside their case. Contact lens solution should never be reused in your case as this can allow bacteria to build up, increasing the chance of an infection. To rinse your contact lenses place them gently in the palm of your clean hand, squirt a little solution onto them and then gently rub them in a circular motion to remove any build-up of protein that may have accumulated on them throughout the day. Finally, give them a last rinse with some clean solution before putting them back into a clean contact lens case.

 

Don’t store contact lenses in water

Whatever you do, never use plain water on your lenses. Tap water has no defense against bacteria and in some cases can even contain amoebas that if they come into contact with your eye can cause serious lasting damage. Some opticians even recommend removing lenses before you shower or swim in case any infected water enters your eye.

 

Give your eyes a break

Your eyes need to breathe and so wearing contact lenses for extended periods of time is not advisable. Most opticians do not recommend wearing lenses for more than 7 hours a day, and you should always remove your lenses before going to bed.

 

Follow these 5 tips and you should have no trouble wearing your contact lenses, just remember to stay on top of your hygiene and to treat your eyes with respect.
