A question we have been asked a lot recently is about touching your face when inserting or removing contact lenses. As long as you wash your hands before and after touching your face and continue to wash them regularly, you should be ok.
If you are wondering if you should be using monthly or daily disposable contact lenses, our advice is not to change what you currently use. If you want to discuss the options with one of our eye care professionals to discuss your individual requirement, contact your local practice and we will be more than happy to help tailor the options to fit your personal needs.
Stick to your recommended cleaning regime that you discussed with your eye care professional when you collected your contact lenses. If you are unsure or have forgotten the details, please feel free to contact your local practice and we will be more than happy to review your individual needs with you.
The key piece of advice we can give you is not to worry about what you are doing. There is no need to make any changes from the original advice you were given. Avoid using gloves to insert your lenses, thoroughly washing your hands before and after removal is sufficient.
Regularly replace your contact lens case for monthly disposable lenses.
