Contact Lens Care Made Easy!
Few things affect the quality of your life more than your eyes. Never put them at risk. Contact lenses are prescription medical devices. To make sure your eyes and vision stay healthy while wearing contact lenses, please follow these few guidelines or the instructions recommended by your doctor.
Warning: Ocular complications and/or long-term corneal damage are the consequences of contact lenses that are worn longer than recommended. Oftentimes, your lenses will still feel good even when you are over-wearing them. Do not wear your lenses overnight unless they are approved for extended wear and your doctor has discussed this with you. Overnight wear increases the risk of infection and other complications.
DON’T wear your lenses longer than 14 hours a day until your first follow-up visit with your doctor, unless the doctor has specifically told you otherwise.
DON’T continue use of contact lenses if your eyes become red, irritated, painful, or if your vision gets worse while wearing lenses. Immediately take out the lenses and clean them. Let your eyes get back to normal and if the problem persists, contact our office.
DON’T exceed the wearing times suggested, even if your lenses still feel comfortable. Studies have proven that the eye needs time to adapt to contact lenses, and your wearing schedule is based on those studies.
DO always remove your contact lenses at least one hour before going to bed to allow for proper oxygen nourishment to the cornea.
DO schedule and keep follow-up appointments with your eye doctor.
DO wear your contact lenses for at least 4 hours the day of your follow-up appointment unless you are experiencing discomfort.
Caring For Your Contacts
Deposits and infectious organisms such as bacteria, viruses--etc., can build up on the surface of all contact lenses. For this reason, it is very important to keep them clean and disinfected and to discard them when recommended.
There are four steps in contact lens care--follow the care prescribed for your lenses:
The best way to properly care for your lenses is to develop a care routine, then stick to that routine! Remember to:
THE BIGGEST RISK OF CONTACT LENSES IS VISION LOSS FROM CORNEAL INFECTIONS. If you experience pain, extreme light sensitivity, redness, or blurry vision, immediately remove your lenses and contact our office. Permanent vision loss can almost always be prevented if you come in right away.
