Just what did we do before the revolutionary discovery of contact lenses? You just pop them into your eyes, and within seconds suddenly the world seems such a beautiful place! With the more recent development of soft and pliable lenses, contact lenses have never been more comfortable. 

If the idea of contact lenses is a foreign concept to you, then the below list of frequently asked questions might steer you in the right direction or shed a bit of light on your concerns.

  • Check the lens before applying; It should be a regular semi-circle shape

  • Always wear and care, never wear and share.
  • Wash and dry your hands before touching your contact lenses.
  • Don’t sleep with your contact lenses in (unless otherwise specified by your eye doctor).
  • Avoid wearing contact lenses while showering, swimming, or using a Jacuzzi.
  • Always handle makeup/hairspray after you handle your contact lenses.

YOUR SUPPLIES :

  • When cleaning your contact lenses, rub and rinse them with solution each time.
  • Water or spit are not options for cleaning! Use only the solution recommended by your eye doctor.

  • Make sure to visit your eye doctor once a year, or more often if needed.

  • If you have eye pain, red eyes, or blurred vision, remove your contact lenses and call your eye doctor.
