Doctor Q&A: Which contact lenses should I use?

Q: I keep getting eye infections and my optician says it is because I am not using my contact lenses properly. Have you any tips?’

A: I wear lenses which I find are very useful, but you do need to take extra care of your eyes.

Firstly, always wash, rinse and dry your hands before touching your lenses. Have regular check-ups with your optician and never use your lenses more than the recommended time limit.

Don’t use tap water to rinse lenses or wear lenses swimming without goggles. Never re-use cleaning solution or have a dirty storage case.

If your eyes become painful, red or if your vision changes always see your optician or GP straight away – don’t ignore it!
