Contact lenses successfully replace glasses to correct vision problems, but also offer the aesthetic advantage of a face without glasses. Comfortable to wear, available in several variants and colors (for those who want a more pronounced change of appearance), contact lenses must be used with care, paying as much attention as possible to hygiene and instructions for correct use. Otherwise, contact lenses may pose a risk to eye health.
Hygiene And Proper Use Of Contact Lenses
- Do not buy eye contact lenses without a prescription from your ophthalmologist.
- Check the shelf life of the lenses at the time of purchase, and if you purchase more boxes, make sure that the wear period is within the shelf life. You can buy contact lenses online form any authentic online store such as ainak.pk, contactlens.pk, daraz.pk or lenses.com.pk, etc. Here you will find a variety of lenses at the best eye lens price in Pakistan.
- Before use, please read the instructions carefully and follow them closely, both in terms of contact lenses and the particular cleaning solution.
- Before handling lenses, please wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and wipe them with a clean, lint-free towel.
- Use only the particular solution to clean the lens. Do not allow tap water to come in contact with the lenses, so it is recommended that you take them out when taking a shower or swimming. Do not use other types of lens fluids (saline, sterile water, or even saliva).
- The cleaning solution should not be reused. Once the lenses are applied, discard the solution from the containers in which you keep the lens, and when you remove them, pour the fresh solution over them.
- When applying makeup, apply the lenses first, then apply makeup. When removing makeup, remove the lenses, then remove the makeup.
- If traveling, do not pour the cleaning solution into a smaller container, as it is not sterile, but purchase the solution in a smaller quantity (and container).
- It is recommended to remove eye lenses at night unless the lenses are prescribed for wearing at night. This way, you avoid drying your eyes and reducing the amount of oxygen that reaches your eyes.
- Do not borrow contact lenses from or from another person.
- Lens storage containers should be rinsed with the same lens solution, then left open to air dry.
- If you notice signs of irritation or infection in the eyes (redness, pain, excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, swelling), remove the lenses and contact your ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
