Do's & Don'ts

DO

•  Attend for regular check-ups as recommended by your practitioner

•  Wash and dry your hands prior to handling your lenses

•  Clean, rinse and disinfect your lenses after each use (except daily   disposable lenses, which should be discarded after each wear, and continuous wear lenses)

•  Air-dry the storage case and keep dry when lenses are being worn

•  Apply your lenses before putting on make-up

•  Remove lenses then remove make-up

•  Avoid hairspray as this can coat your lenses

•  Replace your storage case monthly to prevent a build-up of contamination

•  Have spare lenses (and solutions, if used)

•  Have an up-to-date pair of spectacles available for when you need to remove your lenses

 Ask yourself these three questions, each time you wear your lenses:

 •  Do my eyes look good? — no redness

•  Do my eyes feel good in my lenses? — no discomfort

•  Do I see well? — no unusual blurring

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no', leave your lenses out and consult your contact lens practitioner.

DON'T

•  Use tap water on your lenses or lens case

•  Wet your lenses with saliva

•  Re-use disinfecting solution – discard and replace with fresh solution each time lenses are stored

•  Sleep in your lenses unless specifically advised to by your practitioner

•  Switch the type of solution you use except on the advice of your practitioner

•  Use your lenses for swimming or water sports, unless wearing goggles

. Never wear your lenses when showering or using a hot tub

Of course if your contact lenses are daily disposibles many of these rules will not apply.
