Protect Your Eyes

You only have one pair of eyes, so take care of them! Healthy Habits = Healthy Eyes.

Enjoy the comfort and benefits of contact lenses while lowering your chance of complications. Failure to wear, clean, and store your lenses as directed by your eye doctor raises the risk of developing serious infections. Your habits, supplies, and eye doctor are all essential to keeping your eyes healthy. Follow these tips.

Your Habits

  • Wash your hands with soap and water. Dry them well with a clean cloth before touching your contact lenses every time.
  • Don’t sleep in your contact lenses unless prescribed by your eye doctor.
  • Keep water away from your contact lenses. Avoid showering in contact lenses, and remove them before using a hot tub or swimming.

Your Supplies

Your Contact Lenses
Your Contact Lens Case
  • Rub and rinse your contact lens case with contact lens solution—never water—and then empty and dry with a clean tissue. Store upside down with the caps off after each use.
  • Replace your contact lens case at least once every three months.
Your Contact Lens Solution
  • Don’t “top off” solution. Use only fresh contact lens disinfecting solution in your case—never mix fresh solution with old or used solution.
  • Use only the contact lens solution recommended by your eye doctor.

Your Eye Doctor

  • Visit your eye doctor yearly or as often as he or she recommends.
  • Ask your eye doctor if you have questions about how to care for your contact lenses and case or if you are having any difficulties.
  • Remove your contact lenses immediately and call your eye doctor if you have eye pain, discomfort, redness, or blurred vision.

Be Prepared

  • Carry a backup pair of glasses with a current prescription—just in case you have to take out your contact lenses.
