Effective Ways to Keep Your Contact Lenses in Good Condition

Contact lenses are among the most popular methods for vision correction today. They allow a person to have clear vision without the need for glasses. Contact lenses need proper care to function properly, however. Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care discusses tips to take care of your contact lenses.

Consult Your Eye Doctor Regarding Your Contact Lenses

Discussing your contact lens situation with your eye doctor in Rockville, MD is important. You should always talk about your plans with your eye doctor. Ask whether you want to switch to a new contact lens brand, or if you want to use a new cleaning solution. Some products are not compatible with one another and the wrong choice can harm your eyes.

Perform the Care Regimen Exactly

Following the correct care regimen for your contacts will help you avoid discomfort and infection. First, wash your hands before handling your contacts. Then, remove one lens and clean it with the recommended solution for as long as the package directs. Rinse the lens again to remove debris. Place the lens in your clean lens case. Make sure that the solution is fresh; do not use old solution. Repeat for the other eye.

Keep Your Contacts Free from Contamination

As a top provider of contact lenses, eyeglasses, and laser eye surgery in the greater Washington, DC area, we understand how important it is to keep your contacts clean. Never touch solution bottle tips to any surface because this can cause contamination. Avoid getting tap water on your contact lenses or accessories to avoid microorganisms. Clean your accessories exactly as directed. When not in use, rinse lens cases with hot tap water and dry out. Replace your contact lens case once a month to reduce infection risk.

Follow these methods and your contact lenses may correct your vision without fail.
