Take care of your contact lensesEyes are precious. Clean lenses and replace cases regularly!
If you wear contact lenses, regular aftercare eye examinations are vital to ensure your prescription is still suitable, that lenses are still fitting comfortably and that your eyes remain healthy.
To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before inserting or removing your contact lenses. If you are lucky enough to be able to wear contact lenses that can be disposed of daily - choose them! It is by far the best, most hygienic and healthy option.
Sometimes the complexity of your prescription does not allow daily disposables. If you wear fortnightly, monthly or extended wear contact lenses, ensure you clean them properly after every wear and replace them appropriately. Not complying with cleaning instructions and replacement schedules is probably the most common reason for contact lens failure. Do no allow yourself to become one of the failure statistics - success is a choice.
If your eyes are dry with contact lens wear, don't forget to ask one of our friendly team about lubricating eye drops to keep your eyes hydrated and comfortable. We always recommend lubricants without preservatives. After all why would you want to put potentially irritating preservatives into your eyes.
Better still make an appointment for a comprehensive dry eye assessment. You can book an appointment online now by choosing the dry eye assessment option in our Booking Section above.
