Are you tired of wearing glasses? Perhaps they get in the way at work or while playing sports. No matter the reason, many have successfully switched from wearing glasses to using contact lenses to aid their vision. While contact lenses offer many benefits, what considerations should patients take to ensure they stay clean and safe for use?

How to Clean Your Contact Lenses

Whether you are new to contact lenses or have had them for quite some time, our staff at Envision Optical can help you keep them clean and safe for daily use. Some tips that we generally recommend to our patients include: 

  • Wash your hands with soapy water before handling your contact lenses
  • Use new, fresh lens cleaning solution each time
  • Rub and rinse your contact lenses with your fingers before rinsing with a cleaning solution
  • Keep your contact lens case clean

In addition to keeping their contact lenses clean, patients should avoid getting things like sunscreen, dirt, smoke, makeup, or even water in their eyes to lower the risk of irritation.

If you wish to switch from glasses or need new contact lenses, please get in touch with our optometry clinic for further assistance.
