10 Rules of Safe Contact Lens Wear
- Never let your contact lenses come into contact with water this included swimming, showering or rinsing your lenses in tap water
- Never wear you lenses longer than your optician advises
- Never sleep in your contact lenses unless your optician advises you can
- Only buy your lenses from qualified opticians who are registered with the General Optical Council. In the UK it is Law that as contact lenses are medical devices they can only be supplied to a in date prescription & by a registered optician.
- Only purchase and wear lenses as prescribed by your optician – your optician takes care to ensure you are wearing the correct size & power of contact lens. Self prescribing can lead to increased risks of poor vision, discomfort, inflammatory events & infection. Some of which can be sight threatening.
- Always wash your hands before handling your contact lenses or touching your eyes
- Never stretch out contact lenses longer than recommended for example do not re-use daily disposable lenses and discard monthly lenses every month. Soft lenses in particular have special surface treatments which deteriorate as they age. Using lenses longer than recommended increases risks of deposits sticking to the lenses & warpage. This in turn increases the risks of poor vision, discomfort, inflammatory events and infections.
- If you eye becomes red or uncomfortable remove your contact lenses immediately, if the problem persists seek medical advice as soon as possible.
- Avoid wearing contact lenses for air travel. The dry environment of an aeroplane can cause the lens to shrink and tighten on the eye leading to corneal inflammation.
- Always carry up to date spectacles. This is particularly important for drivers who rely on their sight correction to drive.
