Contact Lens Safety-Tips

Taking good care of your contacts is important to help prevent any eye infection and to ensure that your contacts are comfortable to wear all day:

  • Do not store or rinse lenses in any non-sterile water, including tap water.
  • Do not swim, shower or use a hot tub while wearing soft contact lenses.
  • Do not use saliva or put lenses in mouth to rewet.
  • Do not wear lenses longer than prescribed.
  • Discard any soft contact lenses that are damaged or dehydrated.
  • Avoid using aerosols when wearing contact lenses.
  • Discard any remaining solution in your lens case before disinfecting your lenses again.
