Contact Lenses Care

Women putting contact lenses into the eye.

Contact lenses can make a world of a difference! They are best when engaging in sports, enhancing your facial features, and giving your nose bridge a break from carrying the weight of your eyeglasses. 

If you have chosen daily disposable contact lenses, simply wear them for the day and toss them at the end of the day. 

If you choose the ones that are to be reused and replaced weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, they can take a bit of extra work to keep them safe and clean to use. Fear not, we are here to provide you with the best practices for keeping your contact lenses safe and comfortable.

Basics of Contact Lenses Care 

Your eye care professional has probably already gone over these with you, but here is our cheat sheet! 

Wash your hands

Wash your hand using antibacterial soap, preferably without extra fragrances or moisturizers, as these may damage your lenses. Dry your hands with a lint-free towel to avoid any debris sticking to your hands and fingers. 

Cleaning Lenses

Clean weekly, bi-weekly, contact lenses at least once a day. Always clean your contact as soon as you take them out. Follow a consistent cleaning routine with products that your eye professional has approved. 

Storage of Lenses

When you are not wearing your contact lenses, always store them in a tightly closed case or holder. Make sure to clean the contact lenses case with the same solution you use to clean your lenses and not water.

Cleaning Your Contact Lenses

  1. Start by washing your hands to make sure they are clean and free of debris. Make sure your fingernails are not ragged and are cleaned as well.
  2. Starting with one eye, remove your contact lens and place it in the palm of your hand.
  3. Pour some of the multipurpose solution into the palm of your hand. Use enough to cover the lens, but not have it float away in your hand.
  4. Using the tip of your index finger, avoiding your fingernail, swirl and rub the lens in the solution for at least 20 seconds (always be sure to follow the exact instructions on the product).
  5. Once you have rubbed the lens, pick it up between your thumb and index finger. Dump the solution from the palm of your hand.
  6. Return the lens to your palm and rinse with a fresh solution. Be sure to follow the rinsing instructions that your product suggests, as rinse times can vary.
  7. Place the lens in your CLEAN lens case or holder and fill it with fresh solution. Do not reuse the solution in your cases. Close the case tightly to allow the disinfecting to complete.
  8. Repeat steps 2 through 7 for your other eye.
