Handling & Care of Soft Disposable Lenses

Before handling your contact lenses

Inserting your contact lenses

Removing your contact lenses

Wearing your contact lenses

In general disposable lenses can be worn for several hours immediately. Most patients, however, do have some difficulty inserting and removing their lenses and we consider it prudent to recommend a gradual build up to full daylong tolerance. Start with wearing your lenses for 4 hours and increase by 2 hours each day. Do not wear your lenses for longer than 12 hours in the first month or until they have been rechecked in your eyes by one of our practitioners.

Follow up examinations

Contact lenses are foreign bodies in the eyes and can cause irritations of which the patient is not aware. Only our specialised equipment can detect these problems. It is essential to have your eyes and lenses checked at least once a year.

Advances in technology mean that we will always try to upgrade you into the latest designs and materials. By attending regularly you will benefit from this service.

When you attend for a routine contact lens aftercare appointment please ensure that you are wearing your lenses.

Remove your lenses if they become persistently uncomfortable or your eyes become red and seek our advice.

Always have a pair of up-to-date spectacles you can use when necessary.
