5 things to keep in mind if you wear contact lenses



Wearing those specs is totally out of fashion, and the latest fashion trend about eye care is wearing contact lenses.

They have made life much easier made made you look great. But every good thing comes with a cost and contact lenses are not an exception.

When you take your contact lenses lightly, you end up making several common mistakes that could be hurting your eyes.

Here are few things you should keep in mind if you wear contact lenses-

1. Long time

Wearing contacts for too long is bad for your vision health. It can lead to permanent scarring and even loss of vision.

2. Tap water

Always wash your contacts in appropriate solution that is recommended by your eye doctor. It is best to always carry contact-friendly eye drops or a travel-sized contact lens solution with you.

3. Sleeping time

It is not at all safe to sleep with your contacts in. Extended wear deprives the corneas of oxygen, which can lead to irritation and discomfort, and even a serious infection. In fact, it is common for users who sleep with their lenses in to wake up with dry eyes and blurry vision.

4. Avoid any kind of water activity

Whether it’s the swimming pool, a hot tub or the shower, exposing your contacts to any kind of water is something you should avoid at any cost.

5. Unclean hands

Contact lens wearers often forget to wash their hands before handling the lenses. To avoid getting germs into your eyes, it is imperative that you wash your hands thoroughly before touching your contact lenses, even the case.
