Do

 

  • Always wash and rinse your hands before handling your lenses or touching your eye.  Use a mild non cosmetic soap and dry your hands with a lint-free cloth.
  • Use only recommended solutions and follow label instructions.
  • When handling lenses, work over a clean flat surface or a plugged sink.
  • Clean your lenses immediately after removal.
  • Rub and rinse your lenses.
  • If you drop a lens, clean and disinfect before reapplying.
  • Discard all solutions one month after opening, even if there is solution remaining.
  • Scrub your lens storage case in hot water with a clean washcloth at least once a week.
  • Store you lens case upside down with the caps off.
  • Replace your lens case every three months.
  • Carry your storage case and solution with you at all times
  • Replace lenses as directed by doctor.
  • Always keep your glasses up-to-date, so you can use them if you lose or break a lens, or if you are advised not to wear lenses for any period of time.
  • Close your eyes when using cosmetics or aerosol sprays, such as hairsprays. Such products may leave a residual film on the lens.
  • Use goggles when swimming with contact lenses.
  • Wear protective glasses or goggles if you are in any situation where dust, sand grit or other foreign matter could enter your eye.
  • Consult your eye are practitioner if you experience any redness, secretions, visual blurring or pain.

 

 

Don't

 

  • Don't sleep in your contact lenses without doctor approval.
  • Don't wear lenses when you feel ill or are running a fever.
  • Don't wear your lenses if your eyes are uncomfortable or red.
  • Never place a lens in your mouth for cleaning or wetting.
  • Don't expose your contact lenses to any water: Tap, bottled, distilled, lake or ocean water.  Water is not sterile and increases your risk of infection.  It also lacks the correct salt balance and can damage lenses.
  • Never rub your eyes vigorously while wearing lenses.
  • Don't "top-off" the solutions in your case.  Discard all of the leftover solution after each use. Never reuse any solution.
  • Don't use contact lens solutions past their expiration date.
  • Don't mix up your lenses. Always insert or remove the right lense first and ensure that it is safely on your eye or in the storage case before attempting the left.
  • Don't expose your lenses or storage case to undue heat.
  • Don't tranasfer contact lens solutions into smaller, travel size containers.  This can affect the sterility of the solution.
