Whether it’s for corrective or cosmetic purposes, contact lenses can elevate your Halloween costume from drab to fab. It’s easy to get caught up in the flurry of activities and parties that seem to be happening left and right, but it’s important to learn to use your contact lenses responsibly.
Have your best Halloween yet by following these contact lens care tips from Vision Care Plus.
Rinse With Care
Rinsing the lenses with tap water is a big no-no. Your contact lenses should only be cleaned using a specially formulated solution, usually purchased with the lenses themselves.
Replace your contact solution between the festivities. This prevents the contact lenses from drying out while they are in storage. It’s also a good habit to replace the case every time you purchase a new pair of lenses.
Don’t Sleep in Them
Sleeping while wearing contacts is probably one of the worst things you can do to your eyes. It’s not uncommon for contacts to get stuck behind the eye, and quite a lot of these cases lead to permanent eye damage.
Ask your optometrist regarding the different types of contacts, as you have quite a lot of choices.
