Contact Lens Do's & Don'ts

Good lens wear and care is essential to prevent avoidable eye problems.  

  • Wash your hands and dry them thoroughly before using any type of contact lens and follow all the recommended procedures.

  • Never use tap water to clean lenses - this could lead to serious problems, including corneal ulcers and eye infections. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning, disinfecting and wearing the lenses. 

  • Don’t change how you clean your contact lenses without asking your optometrist or optician first.

  • Replace your contact lens case regularly to reduce the risk of infection and always use fresh solution to store your lenses. 

  • You shouldn’t wear your lenses for longer than you have been instructed to by your optometrist. 

  • You should never sleep in them unless they are specifically designed for overnight wear. 

  • Don’t bathe, shower or go swimming in your contact lenses.

  • Never share or swap contact lenses with anyone else. 

  • If you wear eye make-up, always apply it after putting your contact lenses in.

  • Go to regular after-care appointments with your optometrist - at least once a year or more often if your optometrist recommends it, or if you have problems. 

  • If in doubt, take them out. If you experience any signs of redness, pain or loss of vision - consult your optometrist or contact lens optician immediately for advice.
