Contact Lens Safety Tips: Dos and Don’ts
The Great Lens Adventure!
Ahoy there, fellow contact lens wearer! So, you’ve ventured into the world
of clear vision without glasses? Congrats! Putting little discs of plastic
on your eyeballs is a pretty fantastic superpower. But with great power
comes great responsibility. Here are some light-hearted dos and don’ts to
ensure your lens-wearing journey remains as refreshing as taking a dip in
a pool on a sunny day!
The Magnificent Dos
Do clean your hands before handling your
lenses. Remember, the only things that belong in your eyes are
contact lenses and your dreams of becoming a rockstar ninja warrior. So,
scrub those mitts, sing your favorite tune (if it helps), and then proceed
to conquer the world—or at least insert your lenses.
Do follow the recommended lens replacement
schedule. As tempting as it may be to stretch out the lifespan of
your lenses, resist the urge. It’s for the greater good of your eyes, and
let’s face it, no one wants a petri dish party happening on their precious
Do store your lenses properly. No, hiding
them in your sock drawer is not proper storage. Invest in a cute little
container and some solution (not bubble bath, mind you) to keep your
lenses safe, secure, and party-free.
The Mischievous Don’ts
Don’t sleep in your lenses. We know, we
know—imagining waking up with perfect vision can be tempting, but it’s
just not worth the risk, friend. Your eyes need their beauty sleep, too!
Don’t rinse your lenses with tap water.
While tap water is perfect for countless other activities, it’s not so
friendly to your contacts. Keep them away from that liquid gold and stick
to the lens solution approved by the eye gods.
Don’t use anyone else’s lenses. Borrowing
may be caring, but when it comes to contacts, it’s a definite no-no.
Remember, sharing is usually great, except when it comes to things you put
directly into your eyes. So, don’t be tempted by your friend Billy’s “cool
colored” lenses—unless you enjoy conjuring up red, itchy eyes of doom!
Keep ‘Em Sparkling, Keep ‘Em Safe
Following these lighthearted tips will help you keep your contact lenses
sparklingly clean and your eyes always fabulous. Remember, contact lenses
are here to make our lives easier, so let’s embrace them with love and
proper care. Now, go forth, gallant lens wearer, and conquer the world
with your crystal-clear vision!
