Wearing contact lenses can be convenient, but it's important to follow proper practices to ensure comfort, eye health, and the longevity of your lenses. Here are some tips for wearing contact lenses:

1. Clean Hands Thoroughly

Wash your hands with soap and water before handling your contact lenses. Dry them with a clean, lint-free towel to avoid transferring any dirt or oils to the lenses.

2. Handle Lenses Carefully

When handling lenses, use your fingertips and be gentle. Avoid using sharp objects or fingernails that could damage the lenses.

3. Use the Right Contact Lens Solution

Only use the contact lens solution recommended by your eye care professional. Do not use water or saliva to wet your lenses, as this can lead to contamination and discomfort.

4. Remove Lenses Before Sleeping

Avoid sleeping in your contact lenses, even if they are labelled for extended wear. Sleeping in lenses increases the risk of eye infections and reduces oxygen supply to the cornea.

5. Replace Lenses Regularly

Stick to the replacement schedule provided by your Spec-Savers Optometrist. Do not exceed the recommended duration for wearing a specific pair of lenses.

Remember to attend regular check-ups with your Spec-Savers optometrist to monitor the health of your eyes and ensure your prescription is up-to-date.
