How To Store Contact Lenses
Contact lens wearers should always wash their hands before handling their lenses to avoid transferring dirt and germs to their eyes. They should also avoid moisturizing soaps, as they are not good for contacts. Hands should be dried with a lint-free towel.
When one lens is removed, clean it with the recommended solution to remove eye-produced buildup, cosmetics, and other debris that impairs comfort. Some products require rubbing of the lens with a few drops of solution, while others only require rinsing. Rinsing is then required again to remove any loosened debris. Afterwards, the lenses can be placed in a clean lens case or holder, and filled with the appropriate solution for soaking and disinfection. Disinfection time varies, depending on product. These steps should be repeated for the other lens, and the lenses can be stored in the lens case.
