Whether you wear glasses or contact lenses, it's important to take proper care of them. Proper glasses care will help keep your vision clear and your lenses free from dust and debris. Cleaning your contacts is also essential for preventing eye infections and other health issues. In this blog, we will discuss the best ways to keep your glasses and contacts in top shape.
Glasses Care Tips
If you wear glasses, here are a few things that you can do to keep them looking great all day long:
•Clean them regularly with a soft cloth or lens cleaning solution specifically designed for eyeglasses; avoid using paper towels, which can scratch the lenses.
•Avoid touching the lenses with your fingers; use both hands when putting on or taking off your glasses. This will help prevent oils from transferring onto the lenses.
•Store them safely in their case when not in use; never leave them lying around where they could get scratched or broken.
Contact Lens Safety Tips
It’s just as important to take care of contact lenses as it is to take care of glasses. Here are some tips to help you do just that:
•Always use fresh solution when storing and cleaning contact lenses; avoid topping off solutions or reusing solutions that have been sitting out for more than 24 hours.
•Don’t sleep or swim with contact lenses in; this increases the risk of infection significantly.
•Be aware of symptoms such as redness, irritation, blurred vision, pain and discharge which may indicate an infection has occurred; if any of these occur, remove the lens immediately and consult a doctor right away.
