Taking Care of Your Contact Lenses

Here are some important tips for patients who wear contact lenses:


  • Regular eye exams with your optometrist
  • Use only lenses that are recommended by your eye doctor
  • Always wash your hands well before handling your lenses
  • Clean your lens storage case at least once a week
  • Rinse and store your lenses with the doctor recommended solutions before and after each use
  • Insert the same lens first every time, as to avoid confusion
  • Throw out any expired lenses or solutions
  • Have a backup pair of prescription glasses
  • Wear sunglasses with UV Protection when going outside during the day
  • If you are experiencing redness, soreness or blurry vision, remove your contacts


  • Do not sleep while wearing your contacts
  • Do not wear lenses that are chipped or torn
  • Do not wear your lenses in a swimming pool or hot tub
  • Do not use tap water to rinse your lenses
  • Do not put your lenses in your mouth or wet them with saliva
  • Do not rub your eyes while wearing lenses
  • Do not wear lenses if you are sick or ill
  • Do not wear lenses if your eyes are swollen or irritated from eye allergies or other irritants.

Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) varieties.
