How to Take Care of Contact Lenses

El cuidado apropiado de los lentes de contacto

You can get a serious eye infection if you do not clean and disinfect your contact lenses exactly as directed.

Contact Lens Risks

Contact lenses that are old or that do not fit well can scratch your eye. They can also cause blood vessels to grow into your cornea, a dangerous condition that threatens your vision.

Eye drops can cause problems with your contact lenses. It is best to avoid using any kind of eye drop when wearing contacts. However, you can use wetting drops as recommended by your eye doctor.

Remove your contact lenses and call your eye doctor right away if your eyes are very red, painful, watery or sensitive to light. Do the same if you have blurry vision or notice discharge (ooze or pus) coming from your eye. These can be symptoms of serious eye problems.

Take Proper Care of Your Contacts

You must clean and disinfect any contact lens you remove from your eye before you put the lens back in. There are many types of cleansing systems. The choice depends on the type of lens you use, if you have allergies or if your eyes tend to form protein deposits. Ask your eye doctor what kind of cleaning solutions you should use.

Take special care to clean and store your lenses correctly to avoid dangerous eye infections.

Here is what you should do:

Follow the schedule your eye doctor gives you for wearing and replacing your lenses. You should not wear daily wear lenses while you sleep.

Remove contact lenses before taking a shower, using a hot tub, swimming, or doing anything where water gets in your eyes.

Before touching your contact lenses, wash your hands with soap and water and dry them with a lint-free towel.

Never put contacts in your mouth to wet them. Saliva (spit) is not a sterile solution.

Do not rinse or store contacts in water (tap or sterile water). Also, never use a homemade saline solution.

Do not use saline solution or rewetting drops to disinfect your lenses. They are not disinfectants.

Follow directions from your doctor and from the lens cleaning solution manufacturer to clean and store your lenses.

No matter what type of lens cleaning solution you buy, use a “rub and rinse” cleaning method. Rub your contact lenses with clean fingers, then rinse the lenses with solution before soaking them. Use this method even if the solution you are using is a “no-rub” type.

Use new solution each time you clean and disinfect your contact lenses. Never reuse or “top off” with old solution. Also, do not pour contact lens solution into a different bottle. The solution will no longer be sterile.

Make sure the tip of the solution bottle does not touch any surface. Keep the bottle tightly closed when you are not using it.

Rinse your contact lens case with sterile contact lens solution (not tap water). Then leave the empty case open to air dry.

Keep your contact lens case clean. Replace the case at least every 3 months, or right away if it gets cracked or damaged.

If you store your lenses in the case for a long time, check the contact lens instructions or the lens solution directions to see if you should re-disinfect them before wearing them. Never wear your contact lenses if they have been stored for 30 days or longer without re-disinfecting.

Contact lenses can warp over time, and your cornea can change shape. To make sure your lenses fit properly and the prescription is right for you, see your eye doctor regularly.

Are Contacts Right for You?

Millions of people choose to wear contact lenses. However, they are not for everyone. You might not be able to wear them for the following reasons:

You get a lot of eye infections.

You have severe allergies or dry eyes that are hard to treat.

You work or live where it is very dusty.

You are not able to properly care for your contact lenses.

Your cornea and tear film must be healthy for you to be comfortable and see clearly with contact lenses.

To safely wear contact lenses, you must be committed to caring for them properly and replacing them when needed. Talk with your ophthalmologist or other eye care professional to discuss your vision needs and expectations. They can help you decide if contacts are a good option for you.

如果不按照指示清潔和消毒隱形眼鏡,可能會嚴重感染眼睛。

隱形眼鏡的風險
老舊或不合適的隱形眼鏡會劃傷您的眼睛。它們還會導致角膜新生血管,這是威脅您視力的危險狀況。

眼藥水
可能會導致隱形眼鏡出現問題。戴隱形眼鏡時,最好避免使用任何種類的眼藥水。但是,您可以按照眼科醫生的建議使用潤濕滴劑。

如果您的眼睛非常紅,疼痛,水汪汪或對光線敏感,請取下隱形眼鏡並立即致電眼科醫生。如果您的視力模糊或注意到眼睛有出水(或滲出或膿液,請執行相同的操作。這些可能是嚴重眼疾的症狀。

妥善照顧您的隱形眼鏡
重新戴上隱形眼鏡之前,必須清潔和消毒從眼睛上取下的所有隱形眼鏡。清潔方式有很多類型。選擇取決於所用鏡片的類型,是否過敏或眼睛傾向於形成蛋白質沉積物。詢問您的眼科醫生您應該使用哪種清潔解決方案。
請特別注意正確清潔和存放鏡片,以免造成危險的眼睛感染。

這是您應該做的:
按照眼科醫生給您的時間表安排,以配戴和更換鏡片。睡眠時,您不應該戴眼鏡。

淋浴,使用熱水浴池,游泳或進行水進入眼睛的任何操作之前,請摘下隱形眼鏡。

觸摸隱形眼鏡之前,請先用肥皂和水洗手,然後用不起毛的毛巾擦乾。

切勿將隱形眼鏡浸入您的嘴中以弄濕它們。唾液(唾液)不是無菌溶液。

請勿在水(自來水或無菌水)中沖洗或存放隱形眼鏡。另外,切勿使用自製鹽水溶液。

請勿使用食鹽水或濕潤液來消毒鏡片。它們不是消毒劑。

按照醫生和鏡片清潔溶液製造商的指示清潔和存放鏡片。

無論您購買哪種類型的隱形眼鏡保養液,都應使用“搓洗”的清潔方法。用乾淨的手指搓洗隱形眼鏡,然後在浸泡之前用溶液沖洗隱形眼鏡。即使您使用的保養液是“免搓洗”類型,也請使用此方法。

每次清潔和消毒隱形眼鏡時,請使用新的保養液。切勿重複使用或加入舊保養液中。另外,請勿將隱形眼鏡溶液倒入另一個瓶子。該溶液將不再是無菌的。

確保溶液瓶的尖端不接觸任何表面。不使用時,請保持瓶子密閉。

用無菌隱形眼鏡保養液(非自來水)沖洗隱形眼鏡盒。然後,將空箱子敞開,晾乾。

保持隱形眼鏡盒清潔。至少每三個月更換一次,如果破裂或損壞,請立即更換。

如果您將隱形眼鏡鏡片長時間存放在盒子中,請在佩戴隱形眼鏡之前檢查隱形眼鏡的使用說明或鏡片保養液的使用說明,以了解是否應重新消毒。如果隱形眼鏡已存放30天或更長時間而沒有重新消毒,則切勿佩戴。

隱形眼鏡會隨著時間的流逝而彎曲,並且您的角膜會改變形狀。為確保您的鏡片合適並適合您的處方,請定期去看眼科醫生。

隱形眼鏡適合您嗎?

數百萬人選擇戴隱形眼鏡。但是,它們並不適合所有人。您可能由於以下原因而無法佩戴它們:

您會受到很多眼部感染。

您有嚴重的過敏或乾眼症,難以治療。

您在塵土飛揚的地方工作或生活。

您無法正確地保養隱形眼鏡。

您的角膜和淚膜必須健康,以使您舒適並用隱形眼鏡清楚地看到。

為了安全地佩戴隱形眼鏡,您必須致力於適當的保養並在需要時更換它們。與您的眼科醫生或其他眼保健專家交談,討論您的視力需求和期望。他們可以幫助您確定聯繫人是否適合您。

——

簡單說,就是依照正確的隱形眼鏡與隱形眼鏡保養液使用方式來清潔隱形眼鏡

戴著隱形眼鏡時,眼睛不碰水,戴之前也要以肥皂清洗雙手並用衛生紙”壓”乾

以及容易被忽略的隱形眼鏡水盒,也需要定期更換,其實台灣販售的隱形眼鏡保養液,都會要在開封後三個月內使用完畢(一樣每家品牌不同規範,和各品牌使用的配方有關),因此更換保養液時,就請不要心軟,拿起廠商附贈的隱形眼鏡水盒,一併更換了吧!

最後,最最最重要的,也是柯P之前提倡的,配戴隱形眼鏡者須定期看眼科醫生,以確保角膜與淚液的健康
