CONTACT LENS CARE AND GUIDELINES
Proper use and care of contact lenses is essential for successful and safe wearing. Lapses in care and inappropriate use can result in serious and permanent damage to the eye. The following information is intended to educate the wearer for a lifetime of successful contact lens wear.
You must be able to insert and remove your contact lenses without assistance. This is essential in case of an emergency.
Not all contact lenses can be worn overnight! Even with lenses that are FDA approved for overnight wear, the risk of a potentially blinding corneal infection is 10 to 15 times greater than when lenses are removed at night. For this reason, we recommend that lenses be removed nightly. New cleaning solution should be used daily and contact lens cases should be replaced every 2-3 months. Our top recommendation is a daily disposable contact lens that is made for a single day use only because it has been shown to have the lowest rate of corneal infections among wearers. You also do not have to deal with cleaning solutions and cases.
Always wash and rinse your hands before handling your lenses. Take care not to get cosmetics, lotion, creams, soap or aerosols (perfume, hair spray, deodorants) on the lenses. Put make-up on after inserting your lenses.
Always have back-up glasses in case you are unable to wear your contact lenses. Always have a spare set of contact lenses on hand in case one is torn or lost.
Any of the following may occur when wearing contact lenses: irritation, foreign body sensation or pain, excessive tearing, redness, unusual eye secretions, decreased vision or sensitivity to light. If any of these occur, remove the lens. If the symptoms do not resolve promptly upon removal of the lens or upon reinsertion, contact our office.
Wearing contact lenses in the shower or in a swimming pool increases the likelihood of loss of the lenses and infection.
You must be seen by your eye doctor yearly to verify your contact lens prescription, the fit of the lenses and the health of your eyes. Contact lens prescriptions expire one year from the completion of your fitting.
