Yuuko's guide on cleaning contact lenses

GUIDE TO CLEAN YOUR CONTACT LENSES


Wondering how to clean your contact lenses perfectly and ensure maximum cleanliness? Well this is my guide on how to wash your contact lenses clean and safely. I use this method and my contacts feel very refreshing and comfortable everyday(yes i go out everyday haha). The contact lens i'm wearing now is a Korean brand, Geoangel. This pair is a yearly lens. Yup, so I decided to share with you all since I have the time =DD

Here are some things you might want to have:
1. Solution [Opti-Free]
2. Saline [CIBAVision]
3. Daily/Weekly cleanser [CIBAVision]
4. Eye drops(optional) [all brands are the same,i guess? o_O]
5. Lens Case
[ ] - recommended brand (any brands are fine, though.)

STEP TO STEP

Step 1: Clean your hands thoroughly. Please clean your nails before touching the lenses. If they are not clean, you can get debris or harmful substances in your eyes which can lead to irritation and even blindness! It is important to have clean and short fingernails. It is hard to put contact lenses in your eyes with long fingernails.

Step 2: Wash your lens case. Empty your lens case and fill with fresh solution.

Step 3: To avoid confusion, remove the right lens first. This steps has several points to take note of. If you are wearing clear contact lenses, buy the daily cleanser. If you are wearing coloured contact lenses, buy the weekly cleanser. Actually, the daily cleanser can be used for the colored lenses but you cannot rub the lenses with the cleanser for too long.DO NOT use the cleanser to clean your coloured lenses everyday. The color will fade.
Clear contacts: Apply 1 or 2 drops of daily cleanser on your lens and rub for 15-30 seconds. Rinse your lens with saline(NEVER use saline to store lenses! They are rinsing solution). thoroughly (NEVER use water to rinse soft lens!). Rinse 3 to 5 times for each lenses. This is important because if you do not clean properly, it will cause infection and irritation. Do not insert lens in your eyes if not thoroughly rinsed.
Coloured contacts: Apply 1 or 2 drops of daily/weekly cleanser on your lens and rub for 5-10 seconds. Do not rub for too long because the color will fade. Follow the rinsing method stated above. Do this method once a week for colored lenses.

There are another form of weekly cleanser that comes in capsules. You can soak the capsule in your solution with your lenses. It is the same just that it may cost more.

Step 4: Place the lens in to the appropriate chamber of the lens case. Repeat the procedure for the other lens.

That's all for now. It is always good to bring your lens case and lubricant eye drops wherever you go. When your eyes feel dry, drop some eye lubricant into your eye. When you feel discomfort or irritation, you can take them out and wash the lens after you get home.

Before putting lenses in:
1. Wash hands thoroughly. Read above for more details on washing hands.
2. Before putting in your contact lens, take out for lenses from the lens case and rinse a bit with saline and replace with new solution. Let it soak for 15 minutes before inserting it in your eye.
3. After putting in your lens, wash your lens case and fill with saline or solution(saline is more affordable) and allow it to air dry once in a while.

Things to note:
1. NEVER wear expired contact lens or use expired solution!
2. Remove your contact lens immediately if you feel discomfort and irritation!
3. Put contact lens in first before putting make up.
4. Change lens case every three months.
5. Allow case to air dry once in a while.

That's about all. Hope that helped!
