Contact Lens Care Routine: Easy Tips for Healthy Lenses

There are many things you can do to take care of your contact lenses for eyecare. It's important not to neglect them in favor of other tasks or activities, as this could lead to eye complications like corneal ulcers and infections. This blog post will talk about the different ways that you can keep your contact lenses healthy and clean so that they don't harm your eyesight.

If you wear contact lenses in Australia, you may be wondering how to care for your eyes and keep your contacts healthy. Wearing contact lenses can be a great way to improve vision and convenience, but it's important that we take care of them properly in order to avoid eye problems or damage. In this blog post, I'll talk about the basics of contact lens care - what they are made from, different types of solutions available on the market today (including which ones might not work well with certain conditions), and some tips for making sure your contacts stay as safe as possible!

The first step is to make sure that you're using the right contact lens solution. Some solutions are made for people with certain conditions, such as dry eyes or allergies, and might not be compatible with your own needs. It's important to consult your eye doctor before making any purchases so that you can find a solution that will work well for what you need it to do.

Next, you should always clean your hands thoroughly before handling lenses in order to avoid introducing bacteria from other parts of your body into them which could cause infection later on. One way is by washing with soap and water - but if this doesn't seem like enough protection against germs (or isn't practical), try rubbing some alcohol-based hand sanitizer on your hands to make sure that they're clean and free of any unwanted bacteria.

Another way you can keep contact lenses safe is by wearing them only for the amount of time designated on the package or prescribed by an eye doctor, even if it feels like a short period of time. This will allow plenty of time for proteins in your eyes to dissolve so that they don't stick around and irritate your eyes later on. If you wear contacts too long, this could lead to various problems with dryness, irritation, itching, redness, or other issues - which all stem from extended use without taking care of them properly beforehand. It's also important not to share these items with anyone else as we may have different conditions such as allergies or dry eyes, which could make it difficult for our lenses to work properly.

It's also worth noting that you should never use a solution designed for someone else - even if they are the same brand or type of contact lens as yours.

In terms of how often you need to change your contacts, this is different depending on what kind you wear and why (for example, whether it's because of allergies). Consult with an eye doctor so that they can recommend the best time interval for keeping your lenses clean and safe!

When cleaning your contact lenses after wearing them, start by soaking both sides in fresh saline water or sterile eyewash solutions until all white residue has been dissolved away from each side. Once this is done, carefully remove the contact lenses by twirling them halfway out and then pulling. Do not twist or pull upwards as this could cause lens damage! You may need to use eye drops after doing so, depending on how you feel your eyesight has been affected in terms of comfort level.

Finally, when handling contacts (whether they've just come out from being worn or are about to be put back into storage) it's important that you always wash your hands with soap before touching them again - especially if you have any cuts or scratches since these can introduce germs which will make for an uncomfortable experience later on. If there is a cut near one of the fingers used for handling lenses, place some antibiotic ointment over the wound beforehand and wrap it with a sterile bandage to prevent infection.
