Contact lenses should be cleaned daily or nightly to avoid bacteria, which can cause eye infections such as keratitis.
Keratitis is an inflamed cornea that can be caused by infection or bacteria. Symptoms of keratitis include eye discharge, blurry vision, redness and pain. If left untreated, it can become severe or lead to permanent vision loss. Keratitis can happen when contact lenses in Lady Lake are not cleaned properly. Bacteria can contaminate the lens and carrying case, transmitting to the eye and causing infectious keratitis. That’s why it’s important to follow proper contact lens cleaning methods such as rinsing and disinfecting. Contact lenses can increase the risk of keratitis and more common in those who use extended-wear lenses.
Proper guidelines for cleaning should be followed in order to avoid a fungal eye infection from contact lenses in Lady Lake. When changing lenses, your hands should be washed so as not to transfer any dirt or germs to the eye. Avoid moisturizing soap and clean lenses with a solution that is specific to your brand of lenses. Cleaning lenses helps to remove buildup that makeup, cosmetics and other debris that can leave on contact lenses. Be sure to remove contact lenses as specified by your brand and type, and never leave them on at night unless specified by your doctor. Some lenses are disposable and may need cleaning throughout the day but should be discarded at night. Extended wear lenses present more of a risk of infection and keratitis, but with proper cleaning, should be comfortable and fine for most users to wear without problems.
