Caring for contact lenses

The most important thing to remember when caring for contact lenses is hygiene, hygiene, hygiene!

Before handling your lenses, always wash your hands thoroughly, preferably with an anti-bacterial handwash, and dry them on a lint-free cloth. Handling your lenses means that any dirt on your hands will come into contact with your eyes, so it’s important to keep them scrupulously clean.

Use only the recommended solutions with your lenses and never rinse them under the tap. Daily disposable lenses are intended for single use and must be thrown away afterwards.

Never wear any lenses overnight, other than extended wear lenses that are specifically designed for this.

If you experience any unusual discomfort, or signs of an eye infection, stop wearing your lenses and call Kerin!
