Can I clean and soak contact lenses with saline?
It is advisable to use multi-purpose solution to clean and soak contact lenses for the disinfection of any harmful bacteria or fungal on the contact lenses.
Washing your hands before cleaning contact lenses?
Wash your hands clean with soap and dry them with lint-free towel, before proceeding to clean your contact lenses to avoid unsterilized tap water on your contact lenses.
Do I need to change the multi-purpose solution everyday to soak my contact lenses?
To ensure your contact lenses remain clean from protein build up, it is absolutely necessary to rinse and soak your contact lenses with fresh multi-purpose solution daily, even if it’s a monthly contact lens that you only use it occasionally.
Wearing contact lenses to swim?
Swimming with contact lenses is not encouraged in order to prevent bacterial contamination of your eyes, which can cause the cornea to become infected or inflamed.
What should I do if I need to wear contact lenses while swimming?
Use daily disposable contact lenses when you go for a dip in the water and remove them after your session. After swimming with contact lenses, rinse your eyes with refreshing eye drops or rewetting drops.
Can I sleep with my contact lenses on?
Sleeping while wearing contact lenses will reduce the oxygen level within your eyes. Eye discharge may be caught on the contact lenses, increasing the risk of infection.
Where should I keep my contact lenses?
Do not store your contact lenses in the bathroom, as the flushing of toilets may cause airborne bacteria to land on your contact lens casing or even get on your contact lenses. Do store contact lenses on your room’s dressing table or places that are clean and dry.
Should I go for eye check-ups only when experiencing eye discomfort?
It is important to also visit your optometrist for regular basic eye check-ups to maintain good eye health. If you ever experience eye discomfort, please visit the ophthalmologist immediately.
