If you wear prescription lenses, it’s important to make sure that they are worn correctly. Wearing lenses incorrectly can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as eye strain, blurred vision, and headaches. To ensure that you get the most out of your lenses, here are some tips for wearing them effectively.
Caring for Your LensesTaking care of your lenses correctly is essential to ensure you get the most out of them and keep your eyes safe. It is important to properly clean, store and replace lenses regularly.
When it comes to cleaning your lenses, it is essential to use the right solution. Only use products specifically designed for contact lenses, as other solutions may contain chemicals that can damage your lenses. Before putting the lenses in your eye, use the cleaning solution to gently rub the lens and rinse it with the solution. Storing your lenses correctly is also important for keeping them in good condition.
Always store them in a clean, closed lens case filled with a contact lens solution. Never store them in water or saliva, as these can contain microorganisms that can cause eye infections. Finally, it is important to replace your lenses regularly. Depending on what type of lenses you are using, you may need to replace them daily, weekly or monthly.
Follow the advice of your optometrist or optician and replace them as often as necessary to keep your eyes healthy.
