Looking After Contact Lenses

How do I look after my contact lenses?


  • Wash your hands before handling your lenses or touching your eye.
  • Rub and rinse your lenses on removal.
  • Keep the lid on your solution bottle when not in use.
  • Clean the case daily and replace it every 3 months (allow it to air dry upside down on a clean tissue)


  • Rinse your lenses in tap water.
  • Lick your lenses to clean them.
  • Swim in your lenses.
  • Re-use to top up solution in your case.
  • Wear your contact lenses for longer than prescribed.
  • Use solution past the expiry date.
