“The Six Rules of Contact Lens Wear”

Thousands of individuals enjoy improved vision, comfort, and clarity from wearing contact lenses without any adverse effect on eye health. However, contact lenses are classified as medical devices by the Federal Food and Drug Administration because they can cause serious eye health problems leading to permanent vision loss. Following the instructions our doctors give you will help you continue to maintain good eye health while enjoying the benefits of contact lens wear.

Rule # 1 Your eyes should always look good, feel good, and see good while wearing your contacts.

Rule # 2 Good hygienic routines are essential.

Rule # 3 Use the solutions we recommend.

Rule # 4 Accept that there will be times when you will not be able to wear your contacts.

Rule #5 Come in for check-ups when recommended by the doctor.

Rule # 6 Replace your contacts as recommended.

To prevent problems, clean your hands and contact lens case, use solutions we recommend, and replace your contact lenses as recommended. If a problem develops, listen to your eyes: don’t wear your contacts if your eyes suddenly develop pain, redness or blurred vision AND make an appointment with our doctors to make sure your eyes can be treated as soon as possible.
