How to look after contact lenses

For the fashion-conscious, who find even the snappiest pair of glasses cramp their style, contact lenses are the way forward. However, they are delicate pieces of equipment, as are the eyes you are attaching them to, and so it’s important that before you start using contact lenses that you’re aware of the necessary methods to take care of them. Before handling contact lenses, your hands need to be washed clean, but towelled dry; residue left by whatever soap or cleaning products you use can stick to the contact lenses, and thus be transferred to your eyes, causing at best blurred vision and at worse pain and irritation. If you do happen to develop an eye irritation, remove your contact lenses immediately and ensure that you decontaminate them fully, otherwise you’re simply asking for the irritation to return upon reusing the contact lens. If you are planning to apply makeup to your eyes as well as contact lenses, then make sure you put the contact lenses in first, to avoid contamination of the lens. When ‘taking your face off’ at the end of the night, remove the contact lenses first, having first of course washed and dried your hands. Remember that regardless of whether another individual shares a specific contact lens prescription with you, your contact lenses are your property and yours alone – borrowing the contact lenses of another person is a sure-fire way to cause eye irritation, by bringing unfamiliar particles from one of the body’s most sensitive areas, the eye, into your own. If you’re using re-usable contact lenses, then after each period of use, either sterile solution, as recommended by either your optometrist or pharmacist, or hot water should be used to clean them. Cold water is dangerous, as even bottled water can support micro-organisms that you don’t want transferred to your eyes.
In the last few years it has become more and more popular to Buy Contact Lenses On line as it is so very convenient in comparison to having to go to the store. They are usually much cheaper online and you can also buy all the maintenance products there as well.

  1. Hi, this is Cristen, with Cool Springs Eye Care in Franklin, Tennessee, and I’m going to teach you how to remove your contact lenses without scraping your eyes. One important thing to remember is never use your finger nails to remove your contact lenses. That’s the main reason that a lot of people scrape their eyes when they’re trying to remove their lenses. The two methods of removing your lens are pinching it straight off of the colored part of the eye, or pulling it down to the white part of the eye, and then pinching and pulling it off from there. If you’re having trouble removing your lenses and you feel like you’re causing some irritation, put a couple drops of re-wetting solution or contact lens solution in your eye and wait a few minutes. That can make it a little more, a little easier for you to remove your lenses. If you’re still having trouble after that, you may cause even more irritation if you continue to try to remove the lenses. So, step away from it for a few minutes, take a break, and then go back and try to remove your lenses. If you’re still having trouble, seek help from an eye care provider. They’ll be able to remove your lenses without causing more damage to your eyes. And that’s how you remove your lenses without scraping your eyes.
