The most convenient eye vision product is most likely contact lenses. There may be many people who dislike wearing contact lenses and prefer to wear regular glasses for any type of vision problem. That is entirely their choice, but contact lenses are still the best product available, but with some drawbacks. But what good is a product if it doesn’t have any disadvantages, right? Anyway, one of the most common concerns people have about wearing contact lenses is the risk of developing eye infections.
That’s fair because you can’t have any more problems with your eyes. However, there are ways to improve your hygiene when wearing contact lenses so that you don’t get any eye infections. Let’s take a look at some of the most effective and sanitary ways to wear contact lenses.
Best and hygienic ways to use contact lenses:
Wash your hands before
Never touch your contact lenses unless you are certain that your hands are clean. Before touching the lenses, you must wash your hands, either with soap or simply with water. If you’ve ever worn contact lenses without first washing your hands, you should never do so again. You must understand that those lenses are inserted into your eye. Any germs on your hands will be transferred to your eye. In that case, you are very likely to develop an eye infection or irritation. So simply wash your hands and dry them with a clean towel because it doesn’t take long.

Remember to clean your lens every day
You must keep your lenses disinfected in the same way that you keep your hands clean to ensure that nothing harms your eyes. Disposable contact lenses may be used by some people. And if you’re one of them, you don’t have to worry about it because you’ll throw away the lens after a day. If you are not, you must clean it with a proper lens care solution before wearing it every day.
When you first started wearing contact lenses, your eye doctor most likely prescribed a lens care solution. That solution can be used to keep your lens clean and disinfected.
Don’t leave the lenses overnight
This may come as a surprise to anyone who has used a special overnight lens. However, you should not wear contact lenses while sleeping. It is similar to why you should never wear makeup to bed. Wearing contact lenses overnight has the same effect on your cornea as makeup does on your skin. Just remember to take them off before going to bed to give your cornea a rest.
Replace your contact lens case once in a while
It is also critical to keep your contact lenses in a safe place. According to experts, you should replace your contact lens case every three months. To get an opinion on this, you should speak with your eye doctor. Another thing to remember is to always close your case after you have removed your lenses. Don’t just scatter it around the house. Keep the case closed and in a clean place.
Make sure to avoid contact with water
You may have noticed that your eye doctor advises you to avoid swimming or any other water activity while wearing your contact lenses. Contact lenses can be damaged if they come into contact with any water solution other than the lens care solution. Regular tap water may also contain germs and microorganisms, which is why it is recommended that you only use the prescribed lens care solution to clean your lenses. This way, you can avoid any unexpected eye infections while wearing your lenses.
The most important thing you need to do is make sure your contact lenses and hands are clean before wearing them. Hopefully, all of these suggestions were useful to you.
