How to Properly Care For & Use Your Contact Lenses
Caring for your contact lenses is important to help maintain the life of the lens and protect your eyes from injuries or infections. Here are a few simple tips to care for your contact lenses properly.
- Clean your contacts with your contact lens solution before each use.
- Store your lenses in a contact case when you are not wearing them to keep them protected.
- Do not sleep or shower in your contacts.
- Use clean hands when taking out your contacts and putting them back in.
- Keep up with your eye exam schedule set by your doctor, as your fit and prescription can change over time.
- Finally, only use contact lens solution to clean your contacts and not saliva or tap water.
Specialty Contacts We Offer
Like people, contact lenses come in all shapes and sizes. Your contacts may only require one prescription, or you may need a specialty lens to correct conditions such as presbyopia or astigmatism.
We offer many different types of contacts to support your vision needs. The most common specialty contact lenses we offer include multifocal, aspheric, and toric—which all have individual elements to help address different eye conditions.
Multifocal contact lenses are a type of corrective lenses that are designed to address presbyopia, a common age-related vision condition. These lenses have different optical powers in different zones of the lens, allowing them to provide clear vision at various distances.
Unlike traditional single-vision contact lenses, multifocal lenses contain multiple focal points. This means that individuals with presbyopia can see clearly both up close and at a distance without the need for reading glasses.
Aspheric contact lenses are a type of corrective lenses that have a unique design to improve visual clarity. These lenses are specially crafted to have varying curvatures across their surface, which helps to correct specific refractive errors in the eye.
Unlike traditional spherical lenses, which have a uniform curvature, aspheric lenses are designed to mimic the natural shape of the cornea. This allows for a more precise and customized fit, resulting in improved vision quality.
Toric contact lenses are a type of corrective lenses that are specifically designed to correct astigmatism. Astigmatism is a common refractive error that occurs when the cornea or lens of the eye has an irregular shape, causing blurred or distorted vision.
Unlike regular spherical contact lenses, toric lenses have different powers and curvatures in different meridians of the lens. This allows them to compensate for the irregular shape of the cornea and provide clearer vision for individuals with astigmatism.
