Contact Lens Care

Cleaning your contact lenses is vital for maintaining good vision, lens comfort and eye health. This process only takes a few minutes.

The following should be completed at the end of your prescribed wearing time:

  • Ensure your hands are washed, clean and dry

  • Fill your lens case with fresh contact lens solution

  • Always clean your contact lenses immediately after you remove them

  • Place the lens in the clean, dry palm of your hand

  • Apply a few drops of your recommended contact lens solution

  • With the pad of one finger, gently rub the lens in a circular motion ensuring the contact lens remains in the palm of your hand and in contact with the solution. This will clean the lens surface

  • Rinse your lens thoroughly with your recommended contact lens solution

  • Put the lens into your clean contact lens case

  • Repeat this routine for your other lens

  • Close the case and leave your lenses to soak overnight

  • Ensure the lid for your contact lens solution is replaced after every use

  • After removing your contact lens from your case, empty the case of all solution and rinse it with fresh lens solution (never use tap water) and allow to air dry upside down on a clean dry surface

  • You should replace your contact lens case every month

IMPORTANT! Never use tap water in your case or on your contact lenses. Please refer to your contact lens solution instruction guide for further information about how long to soak your lenses or how often you should change the solution if you don’t wear them daily.

If you have any redness or discomfort in your contact lenses, we advise that you do not continue to wear them. Contact us so we can best advise you the best course of action.

If a comfort drop is required for your contact lenses, we can advise you which would be most suitable for your needs. Please be aware that some eye drops are not compatible with your contact lenses. Please check with your optician before commencing use.

If you notice any discharge from your eye, please remove your lenses immediately and dispose of them. DO NOT reuse these as you may have an eye infection. If you are concerned please book in to see your optician.
