Contact lenses are worn safely and loved by millions of people. However, research shows that not all contact lens wearers know how to look after their lenses properly.
Love Your Lenses Week 2018 is taking place between the 24th and 30th of March. If you’ve not seen your optician in a while, it’s a prime time to book in for an aftercare appointment. Resident Optometrist at Edmonds & Slatter, Radhika Patel would like to encourage you to always get your lenses checked; “At these appointments, I will check that your contact lenses are fitting correctly and that your vision is good, and will talk to you about the best ways to care for your lenses to make sure your eyes stay healthy”
If you love your eyes, you should love your lenses. As well as cleaning and storing contact lenses properly, there are other steps that should be taken, such as making sure you always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before touching your lenses.
