Cleaning Your Contacts
Cleaning and disinfecting your contact lenses is a must when you're wearing reusable contacts and it only takes a few minutes to do so with the appropriate solution.
Consult your eye care professional for their advice on the recommended multipurpose disinfecting solution and its appropriate use for the contact lenses they have prescribed for you.
Important Things To Remember
Wash Your Hands
Ensure your hands are washed, clean and dry to avoid irritation.
Begin With The Same Eye
Establish a habit of starting with the same eye. This way you won’t mix them up, since each eye has its own prescription.
Clean Contacts After Removal
Always clean your contact lenses immediately after you remove them using the multipurpose disinfecting solution recommended by your eye care professional. If you wear daily disposable lenses, throw them away after.
Never Use Tap Water To Clean A Lens Or Lens Case
Refer to your contact lens solution instruction guide for further information about how to rub, rinse and soak your contact lenses and how often you should change the solution.
Steps For Cleaning Your 2-Week Or Monthly Contacts
Fill each chamber
of your contact lens case with fresh contact lens disinfecting solution.
Place one lens
in the washed, cleaned and dried palm of your hand and apply a few drops of your contact lens disinfecting solution. With one finger, gently rub the lens back and forth on your palm to clean the lens surfaces.
Rinse your lens
thoroughly with more of your solution, and put it into your clean contact lens case.
Repeat this routine
for your other lens, close the case and leave your lenses to soak overnight.
Cleaning Your Contact Lens Case
After placing your lenses on your eyes, always empty your contact lens case of the old solution. Never re-use multipurpose disinfecting solution. Never “top-off” the case.
Rinse your case with fresh contact lens solution. Never use tap water for this step.
Allow contact lens case to air-dry, upside down on a clean tissue.
Replace your contact lens case on a regular basis – at least every 3 months.
