Viewpoint Vision Care offers a wide range of high-quality corrective eyewear options available in different designs and colors. Here are three simple steps you can take to keep your contact lenses and eyeglasses in good condition:
1. Wash Your Hands
Always wash your hands thoroughly with antimicrobial soup before handling your contact lenses or eyeglasses. This will reduce hand-eye transmission of infection-causing microorganisms. Afterward, dry your hands completely with a lint-free cloth.
2. Follow Your Optometrist’s Eyewear Cleaning Instructions
During your clinic visit, your reliable eye care specialist will provide step-by-step instructions as part of our standard eye services on proper ways to use and clean your eyewear. When cleaning your eyeglasses, use lukewarm tap water and a small amount of dishwashing detergent. Rinse and dry them thoroughly afterward. When cleaning your contact lenses, use only our prescribed lens solution, as other solvents may damage your lenses or cause eye irritations.
3. Store Your Eyewear in the Proper Case When Not in Use
Always store your contacts or eyeglasses in their proper case when you’re not wearing them. This protects them from damage, keeping them in good condition for lasting improved visual clarity. We also suggest cleaning your contact lens case regularly and replacing it every three months.
Keep in mind that your contact lenses have prescribed replacement dates. Depending on the type of contacts you have, they may need to be replaced daily, monthly, or every few months. Visit your go-to eye clinic for regular checkups so we can check if any changes to your current prescription are needed.
