Cleaning Your Contact LENSES
Caring for your contact lenses is a must when you’re wearing reusable contact lenses, and it only takes a few minutes to clean your reusable contact lenses with the appropriate solution.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER
Wash your hands
Ensure your hands are washed, clean and dry to avoid irritation.
Begin with the same eye
Establish a habit of starting with the same eye. This way you won’t mix them up, since each eye has its own prescription.
Clean contact lenses after removal
For bi-weekly and monthly lenses, always clean your contact lenses immediately after you remove them. If you wear daily disposable lenses, throw them away after removal.
Never use tap water to clean a lens or lens case
Refer to your contact lens solution instruction guide for further information about how long to soak your contact lenses or how often you should change the solution if you don’t wear them every day.
STEPS FOR CLEANING YOUR 2-WEEK OR MONTHLY CONTACT LENSES
Fill each chamber
of your contact lens case with fresh contact lens disinfecting solution.
Place one lens
in the clean, dry palm of your hand, and apply a few drops of your contact lens disinfecting solution. With one finger, gently rub the lens back and forth on your palm to clean the lens surfaces.
Rinse your lens
thoroughly with some more solution, and put it into your clean contact lens case.
Repeat this routine
for your other lens, close the case and leave your lenses to soak overnight.
CLEANING YOUR LENS CASE
Empty your contact lens case of the old solution.
Rinse it with fresh contact lens solution.
Allow contact lens container to air-dry, upside down on a clean tissue.
Replace your contact lens case on a regular basis, every 3 months.
