What You Should and Shouldn’t Do When Wearing Contact Lenses


Contact lenses and eyeglasses are different. Caring for your contacts is a little more difficult because it is very delicate. Furthermore, you insert it in your eyes. If not cared for properly, it may cause infection which can lead to certain eye problems. To avoid that, here’s what you should and shouldn’t do:

  • Always remove your contacts before you go to sleep even when you are very tired. Do not sleep with it on because it lessens the flow of oxygen to your eye making it prone to infection.
  • Make sure that both your hands and contacts are clean before you touch and use them. Your hands can be full of germs from touching many other things and your need to clean and dry your case and fill it with a new solution every day.
  • Replace your contact lenses regularly or until how long your eye doctor recommends it. Depending on the type of contacts, it usually lasts for a day, a week, a month, and some, up to a year.
  • Only buy contact lenses with an eye doctor’s prescription. There have been lots of supply for decorative or cosmetic contacts on the market nowadays and many people feel that they don’t need to consult with a professional since it doesn’t affect their visual performance.
