May 31,2023 | MCLEYE

HOW TO WEAR CONTACT LENSES?

To ensure proper hygiene and comfortable wearing of colored contact lenses, follow these steps:

1. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water to prevent dirt and germs from coming into contact with your eyes and lenses. Avoid moisturizing soaps that may leave residue on the lenses.

2. Rinse the lens case with fresh water and fill it with the appropriate contact solution designed for storage. Remember, this solution should not be used for cleaning purposes.

3. Carefully remove the lens from its container and place it in the lens case, ensuring it is fully submerged in the solution. Allow it to soak for at least 10 minutes to ensure effective disinfection.

4. Before handling the lens, use a lens tweezer or your fingertips to gently lift it from the solution. Take care to handle the lens delicately to avoid any damage.

5. Check the orientation of the lens by observing its shape and edges. If there is no obvious difference, flip it over several times to ensure it is not inside out. Wearing a lens inside out can lead to discomfort or vision issues.

6. Use your non-dominant hand to gently lift your upper eyelid upward. With your dominant hand's middle or ring finger, pull down your lower eyelid. Place the contact lens on the white part of your lower eyelid. Carefully remove your finger and release your eyelids. Look downward and then close your eyes for a brief moment. This allows the lens to center itself on your eye.

7. Close your eye and gently move it from side to side if you feel any air bubbles. Alternatively, you can softly massage the lens by closing your eyes. This helps to eliminate any trapped air and enhance the lens' positioning.

8. Repeat the previous instructions to insert the second contact lens into your other eye. By following these steps, you can achieve good vision and enhance your natural beauty.

※ Remember, it's important to maintain proper hygiene and care for your contact lenses. Clean and store them according to the instructions provided by your eye care professional or the lens manufacturer. If you have any concerns or questions, consult with your eye care professional for personalized advice.

HOW TO REMOVE CONTACT LENSES?

To safely remove your contact lenses, follow these steps:

1. Cleanse your hands thoroughly using soap and water and dry them using a lint-free towel or paper towel. Make sure to use soap without lotion, cream, perfume, or synthetic coloring, as these additives may leave residue on your hands. 

2. Discard the used lens solution in the lens case and rinse the case thoroughly with running water. Refill the lens case with a fresh contact lens solution. Remember not to mix old and new solutions or top off the old solution.

3. Using a mirror, carefully locate the position of the lens in your eye.

4. With your left hand, gently raise your upper eyelid, and with the middle finger of your right hand, lower your lower eyelid. Use your right thumb and index finger to grasp the lower part of the lens and slowly pull it out. Be cautious not to let your fingernails come into contact with the lens.

5. Place the lens in the solution-filled case, ensuring it is fully submerged. Close the lid securely.

☑ Note: It is crucial to replace the lens case every three months to maintain hygiene. Additionally, the lens solution in the case should be replaced at least once a day. Ideally, avoid storing lenses in the same solution for more than three days.

※ Following these steps will help you safely remove your contact lenses and maintain their cleanliness. For personalized advice on lens care, consult with your eye care professional.

HOW TO CLEAN CONTACT LENSES?

To properly clean your contact lenses, follow these steps:

1. Begin by washing your hands thoroughly to prevent the transfer of dirt and germs to your eyes. It's recommended to avoid moisturizing soaps, as they may not be suitable for contact lenses. Dry your hands using a lint-free towel.

2. Clean the lens using the recommended solution. This step helps remove deposits from your eyes, such as debris, cosmetics, and natural buildup. Gently rub the lens in the palm of your hand with a few drops of solution, even if you are using a "no-rub" product.

3. Rinse the lens again to ensure any loosened debris is completely removed. Take the necessary time as directed on the package, as rinsing is an essential step in the cleaning process.

4. Place the lens in a clean lens case or lens holder and fill it with fresh solution. Avoid "topping off" the case with an old solution, as it may not provide adequate cleanliness and disinfection.

5. Repeat steps two through four for your other lens, ensuring both are properly cleaned and stored.

※ Remember to adhere to the instructions provided by your eye care professional or the lens manufacturer for specific cleaning recommendations and proper lens care.
