While most patients know how important it is to take care of your contact lenses, some don’t know all the proper ways to do it.
Always make sure hands are clean before touching your lenses.
Use new contact lens solution each day or night.
Clean your case at least once a week.
So, what is the proper way to clean your contact lens case?
“The most effective way to reduce the number of microbes on a contact lens case is to fill it 80% with multipurpose solution, rub it for five seconds with the finger, wipe it dry with a tissue, then air dry the case upside down on a clean tissue.”
Never use water to clean your case or your contact lenses. If you do use water, make sure to rinse it thoroughly with contact lens solution.
