Contact lenses and water don’t mix! want to give you some Important guide lines to minimize the risk of infection

Never allow water to come into contact with your contact lenses or contact lens storage case.

Never rinse your lenses in tap water as it contains many impurities that can contaminate or damage your lenses and may lead to serious eye infection and vision loss.

If you feel that your contact lenses or your contact lens case may have been contaminated with water then replace them with new ones immediately.

Problems with contact lenses are thankfully rare but research shows that they are more likely to occur if the recommended hygiene procedures are not followed. That’s why it’s important to listen carefully to the advice of your contact lens practitioner and always follow their instructions on lens wear and care – as well as those of the contact lens manufacturer.

Risk factors for infection in contact lens wearers include:

•Using tap water during lens care (to rinse lenses or the storage case)
•Wearing lenses while swimming (without goggles), showering or in hot tubs
•Using ineffective lens care solutions
•Failing to follow lens care instructions
