How to use contact lenses?

  1. Remove contact lenses before retiring to bed.
  2. Avoid swimming when wearing contact lenses. You need to remove them before taking the plunge! If you fail to do so, there are high chances that you may end up with a devastating eye infection due to Acanthamoeba which is painful, difficult to treat, and leads to the blindness of that eye.
  3. Use a contact lens cleaning solution to clean the contact lenses. Avoid the use of tap water or any other liquid for this purpose. Clean it after use and before you reinsert it into the eye. After the chemical is used to clean the lens, use a saline solution to wash away the chemicals.
  4. Use clean hands while putting on or removing the contact lenses. If hygiene is not adhered to, it may lead to bacterial infections of the eye. Pseudomonas infection is common and leads to pus in the eye and blindness.
  5. Avoid prolonged use of contact lenses as the risk of infections increases 5-10-fold due to it. Rufina Chan, an optometrist at Family Eye Care in Wan Chai says:

“Special extended-wear contact lenses do exist, which are made of a material that has been approved for overnight wear by the US Food and Drug Administration. Consult your optometrist to find out if these are suitable for you.”

  1. Handling of lenses should be done with dry and clean hands. Avoid wet fingers while holding the lens.
  2. The lens case also requires regular cleaning.
