It is essential to take good care of your contact lenses every day to keep them clean, comfortable and safe.
Many people choose to wear contact lenses (also known as contacts) instead of glasses. Contact lenses offer several benefits over glasses: they don’t steam up in winter, slip off your nose, move up and down when you run, and many people prefer how they look wearing contacts to how they look when they wear glasses.
When used properly, contact lenses represent a safe and effective way to correct vision
There are different types of contact lenses, each of which have advantages and inconveniences:
Your eye care professional can help you to determine which contact lenses are best-suited to you, by taking into account the following factors: your age, health, lifestyle, and personal preferences.
As is the case with many synthetic materials, contact lenses have a tendency to accumulate deposits and germs. The accumulation and the absorption of substances and particles can lessen the comfort of lenses and increase the risk of eye infections. This is why taking care of your lenses is so important.
In addition, adhering to a rigorous care routine can reduce the risk of the most frequent problems associated with contact lenses, e.g. redness, itching, dryness, teary eyes and allergic reactions.
The two most common types of “all-in-one” contact lens care systems are multipurpose solutions (MPS) and hydrogen peroxide-based solutions. They offer contact lens wearers one solution that disinfects, cleans, and rinses contact lenses, and which you can store them in.
Multipurpose solutions contain disinfecting ingredients to kill germs and other ingredients to help keep lenses clean and wet. Most multipurpose solutions require several steps for to fully disinfect and clean the lenses. These steps vary by manufacturer.
The second main type of lens care solution is hydrogen peroxide-based. The lenses must be steeped in the solution for at least six hours, in the lens case, which allows the bubbling action to clean the lenses thoroughly and the disinfectant to become neutralized.
Always seek advice from a competent eye care provider before using any product associated with contact lenses.
