Cleanliness is the most important aspect of proper contact lens care. Establish a routine of good hygiene for handling your lenses.
To avoid mix-ups, develop the habit of always inserting the first lens in your right eye. Before inserting the lens, check to see it is free of any nicks or tears. If it appears damaged, throw it away. Check the lens has not turned inside out. Place the lens on the tip of your forefinger and hold above eye level; you are looking at the bowl of the lens from the outside.
There are other methods of lens placement. If the above method is difficult for you, your Eye Care Practitioner can provide an alternative.
Usually, the lens centers itself automatically on the middle of your eye when you insert it and will very rarely be displaced on to the white of your eye during wear.
However, this can occur if insertion and removal are not performed properly. To center a lens, follow either of these methods.
If your vision is blurred after inserting the lens, check for the following:
Always remove the same lens first.
Wash, rinse and dry your hands thoroughly. Always ensure that the lens is on the middle of your eye before attempting to remove it. If your eye feels really dry, insert a couple of rewetting drops to lubricate your lens before trying to take it out. To locate the lens, inspect the upper area of the eye by looking down into a mirror while pulling the upper lid up. Then inspect the lower area by pulling the lower lid down.
Once you have found the lens, you can remove it by using the Pinch Method introduced below or any other method recommended by your Eye Care Practitioner.
For the continued safe and comfortable use of your lenses, it is important to follow the instructions given to you by your Eye Care Practitioner.
Failure to follow the correct lens care regime may result in the development of serious eye problems.
Cleaning and rising are essential to remove mucus, secretions, and deposits which may have accumulated during use. Do this immediately after removing your lenses and prior to disinfection. Harmful germs can only be removed by cleaning, rising and disinfecting.
You should remove your lens immediately if you experience any of the following problems:
If the discomfort or problem stops when you are take out the lens, you should examine it closely for damage, dirt or a foreign body.
If the problem continues, consult your Eye Care practitioner immediately.
Any of the symptoms above can indicate a serious condition such as infection or corneal ulcer. Prompt diagnosis and treatment is essential to avoid serious damage to your eyes.
Remember that symptoms are warning signs. If in doubt, take them out.
When wearing Colour Contact Lenses, you may notice temporary differences in your vision due to the presence of the color in your lenses, especially in conditions of low light, if these differences in vision persist, it is important that you consult your Eye Care Practitioner.
Never allow anyone else to wear your lenses. They have been prescribed to fit your eyes and to correct your vision to the degree necessary. Sharing lenses greatly increases the chances of eye infections.
When the replacement period prescribed by your Eye Care Practitioner is over, your lenses should be discarded and replaced with a new sterile pair.
