Contact Lens Care 2For those of us who have ever gone to the local supermarket or drugstore and have seen the wide array of products for lens care, it can be quite daunting.  Though this may be the case, it is truly important to know the proper care for soft contact lenses, because lack of care can result in a variety of eye conditions and infection.

In reality, soft contact lens care has been made easier with the advancement in lens technology and solutions. There are one step cleaners, and all in one bottle care packages to ease your stress in this matter.  Whichever care you choose, it is important to know that you should always consult your local eye doctor before switching or changing your lens care regimen.  Using incompatible products can cause both your eyes harm, and your lenses.

To ease you into the barrage of bottles and boxes, it helps to know the steps to proper  lens care.  Even knowledge of certain brands can be a help, since some have been known to cause irritation or worse.

The Basic Principles of Soft Contact Lens Care

1. Wash your hands well to avoid transferring dirt, dust and germs to your eye. Try not to use moisturizing soaps or cleansers, since they are not good for contact lenses. Dry your hands with a lint-free towel.

2. Remove one lens at a time and clean it with the recommended cleaning solution. This cleaning removes buildup, cosmetic debris and other materials that may impair lens comfort. The FDA recommends that you rub the lenses in the palm of your hand with a few drops of cleaning solution. This is a good idea even if you are using a “no-rub” product.

3. Now rinse the lens again thoroughly and remove the now-loosened debris. Always be sure to take as much time as the package recommends. Rinsing is a vital step.

4. Place the lens in a clean lens case or lens holder and fill it with fresh cleaning solution. Do not “top off” your old cleaning solution. Disinfecting will kill microorganisms on the lens.
