Good Contact Lens Care = Good Vision & Eye Health
- Always wash your hands with contact lens soap before handling contact lenses.
- Rub & rinse your lenses before placing them into a storage solution.
- Only use the contact lens solutions that are recommended by your doctor.
- Avoid using tap water to wash or store your contact lenses.
- If a contact lens is dirty or an object gets under the lens, immediately remove it and thoroughly clean & rinse the lens before reapplying the lens to your eye.
- Continuous Wear patients need to immediately reduce their wearing time to daily wear when they get a cold, have sinus problems, severe allergies or just do not feel good.
- If you are sick, you should not be wearing your lenses. All patients need to have an updated pair of glasses.
- Continuous Wear patients should only wear their lenses on a continuous wear schedule when they are 100% healthy.
- Continuous Wear patients should never sleep in their lenses after swimming or soaking in the hot tub.
- Your eyes should always Look Good, Feel Good & you should See Good! If not, remove the lenses immediately.
- Contact lens patients need to be examined by one of our doctors every six months, so they can evaluate your vision, the fit of the lens and your eye health.
- Contact lenses need to be replaced on a scheduled basis as prescribed by your doctor.
Anti-bacterial Lens Case
Contact lens wearers now can receive extra protection against potential eye infections through use of a new lens case, infused with an antimicrobial agent that helps prevent contamination.
The contact lens case contains silver atoms that have been electrically charged (ions). This has shown in clinical trials to help reduce the possibility of outside contamination within the case by 40%.
Lens cases are quite vulnerable to contamination. For example, data tells us that a large percentage of contact lens wearers rinse their lens cases with tap water, which could be a source of contaminants. It's therefore not surprising that lens case contamination occurs with up to 80% of contact lens wearers. The Lens Case is infused with silver ions to kill bacteria and help minimize contamination on the lens case surface. The silver ions are gradually released as the case is exposed to moisture. This slow, sustained release maintains the antimicrobial agent at the surface of the case.
Silver has frequently been used as an antimicrobial agent in oral hygiene, medical devices such as catheters, food packaging, water purification and other products. The antimicrobial Lens Case is gentle, non-toxic and safe.
