Three pointers to getting comfortable with contacts
Getting comfortable in contacts is easier than you'd think.
With the right approach, they'll become part of your daily routine in no time.
Putting On and Off
The process of putting on and taking off your contact lenses may take some getting used to so give yourself extra time, especially when getting ready in the mornings.
TIP: Set an alarm on your phone to remind you when to clean or take out your contacts.
Contact Lens Myth Busting
We’re debunking the biggest myths so you can feel confident in your contact lenses.
Myth: Contact lenses can go behind your eye
It's impossible for contact lenses to get behind your eye, as there is a membrane called the conjunctiva that covers the white part of the eye and connects to the inside of the eyelid.
Myth: Contacts can scratch your eyes
As long as you care for your contact lenses properly and wear them as a qualified eye care professional prescribes, the chances of such problems are extremely rare.
Myth: Contacts can get stuck to your eyes
Contacts are generally easy to remove using the method your eye doctor recommends. If they temporarily stick, use a few drops of lens solution to loosen them up.
Myth: Eye infections are common when wearing contacts
Contact-related health problems are rare, and usually related to poor cleaning routines. Follow your eye doctor's care instructions to keep your eyes safe.
