Do you wear contact lenses to improve your vision? Is yes, then how do you maintain your lenses? What steps are you taking to keep your eyes healthy? Here are a few things that you should be careful about when using contact lenses.

Do not sleep wearing your contact lenses

There are specially designed contact lenses that will allow you to sleep in them. Normal contact lenses are not made for sleeping in. If you do, you could develop serious vision problems and even go blind, as scores of people have discovered. Instead, you can wear prescription glasses when you are at home.

Can contact lenses be shared?

It is a dangerous practice to share contact lenses with anyone else. You wouldn’t share your toothbrush, would you? In spite of the tear film, the eyes harbor many microorganisms. When you share contact lenses with someone else, these microorganisms are transferred. This is a very easy way to get an eye infection.

Can you clean contact lenses in water?

You should never clean or store contact lenses with water, and not even with boiled water. Water will not disinfect the contact lenses and certainly not wash away the accumulated debris. Water cannot match your tears for acidity. Only sterile contact lens solution from a good brand should be used to clean your lenses.

You dropped your contact lenses. What do you do?

Sometimes contact lenses may get dropped. As soon as the lens touches the ground, thousands of microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses stick to it. So, clean it thoroughly with lens cleaning solution.
