How to Clean Your Contact Lenses?

  1. The rub and rinse method is the most ideal and simplest way to go about cleaning the lenses, and is akin to washing one’s hands. A small amount of the contact lens solution is poured on the lens held in one palm of the hand, and with the index finger of the other hand, the lens is cleaned by rubbing the liquid over its surface for five to ten seconds. The process is then repeated on the other surface. Then, a continuous stream of the complete lens solution is sprayed on both sides of the lens to eradicate any last traces of debris still sticking to the lens. This procedure removes more bacteria, deposits and any surplus deposits from the lens surface, and leads to improved hygiene and safety. Properly follow all instructions given in the label of the lens care product.
  2. Cleans, rinse and air-dry the lens case every time you remove the lenses from it. Flip it over while drying in order for surplus solution in the case, if any, to ease out. This is necessary as leftover solution could make the case a harbor for bacterial growth. Replace the lens case every three to six months.
  3. Improper use of the lenses and lens solution can cause eye icleaning-your-contact-lensesnfections, and bacterial as well as fungal infections, and, if untreated, can result in grave consequences like permanent loss of eyesight. Bacterial infections are far more common than fungal ones, though fungal infections are much more complicated to detect, diagnose and cure. This is because the fungus slowly multiplies within the corneal region and greatly opposes treatment.
  4. Failure to empty the solution out of the lens case after every use can cost your eyesight. The leftover solution after a disinfection cycle is “dirty” and filled with dead germs and microscopic debris. It does not have the same initial potency as that of fresh solution. It has little disinfecting material to kill bacteria effectively and other microbes and may further contaminate your lenses, increasing chances of contracting serious eye infections.

Precautions for Healthy Usage of Contact Lenses

  1. Do not, in any case, use a lens solution that has passed the expiry or discarding date.
  2. Do not “top-off” the leftover solution remaining in the case. Never attempt to reuse the solution. Always throw away the remainder liquid after each use.
  3. Do not let your lenses come in contact with any type of water: tap water, distilled, bottled, lake water, ocean water etc. Do not use non-sterilized water, which includes any homemade saline solution. Washing of lenses with water leads to Acanthamoeba keratitis, an infection of the cornea, which till now has no proper method of treatment.
  4. Do not in any case use saliva to wet the lenses, as saliva is not a pure or sterile solution.
  5. Do not attempt to pour the solution into a smaller travel-size container. This could hamper the sterility of the solution and cause irritation or infection. This can also lead to a mix-up and the user could accidentally end up using a solution not meant for the lenses or eyes.
