Do you remember when you first started wearing contact lenses and your optometrist taught you how to care for them?
Even if that was some time ago, and you feel confident that you are doing everything according to the book, it might be worth your while to briefly refresh your knowledge about how, why and what solutions should be used to keep your lenses in tip-top shape, and to make certain your eyes stay healthy.
Daily Disposable Lenses
Of course, for those of you who wear daily disposable contact lenses, you don’t need to worry about cleaning and disinfecting them. Sometimes, you might need to rinse them, though, and you should always use saline, never fresh water (even if it has been boiled). Make certain that you use a preserved saline (such as Ciba Softwear Saline), or an aerosol saline.
If you use a frequent-replacement contact lens, or a conventional daily-wear lens, then you will be using either a multi-purpose solution, or one of the systems based on hydrogen peroxide (eg: AOSept Plus).
However you clean and disinfect your contact lenses, if you think you may not be carrying out the procedure properly, or have forgotten, do ask your the staff at In2Eyes. They’ll be happy to answer any questions on the telephone, or you can get in touch via this website; there is no substitute for the correct advise from the appropriate person! Enjoy wearing your contact lenses!
Hybrid Contact Lenses
In2Eyes is a provider of Hybrid Contact Lenses: Hybrid contact lenses are the latest and most advanced option available in contact lenses specifically designed for keratoconus, astigmatism and irregular cornea patients. They have a combination of hard centre with a soft skirt for a much more comfortable fit and feel than either hard or soft contact lenses. To find out more about hybrid contact lenses click here.
Orthokeratology Services (Ortho K)
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a safe, non-surgical way to correct vision. Specialised contact lenses gently reshape the cornea during sleep so that patients may enjoy clear vision during waking hours without glasses or contacts. The procedure is non-invasive, reversible, and can be used to treat myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (longsightedness), astigmatism and even presbyopia (inability to focus at near distances). Moreover, it has been shown to be one of the most effective methods for myopia control. To find out more about Orthokeratology click here.
