See Clearly and Stay Healthy: Contact Lens Health Week

Here at Houston Eye Associates, we understand the importance of promoting safe and healthy contact lens practices to ensure the best eye health outcomes for our patients. That is why we are excited to write about Contact Lens Health Week and share some important do's and don'ts for contact lens wearers.


Here are some important do's and don'ts to keep in mind when wearing contact lenses:



  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling your contact lenses.
  • Clean your contact lenses and contact lens case regularly. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and disinfecting your lenses and case.
  • Replace your contact lenses as often as recommended by your eye doctor. Using old or expired lenses can increase the risk of eye infections.
  • Follow your eye doctor's instructions for wearing and caring for your contact lenses.
  • Remove your contact lenses before going to bed, swimming, or participating in any water activities.
  • Use only approved solutions for cleaning and storing your contact lenses.




  • Don't wear your contact lenses longer than recommended. Over-wearing your lenses can cause eye irritation, infection, and other eye health problems.
  • Don't share your contact lenses or contact lens case with others.
  • Don't use tap water to rinse your contact lenses or contact lens case. Tap water can contain harmful bacteria that can cause eye infections.
  • Don't wear your contact lenses if you have any signs of eye infection, such as redness, pain, or discharge.
  • Don't wear your contact lenses if they are damaged or torn. Damaged lenses can scratch your cornea, which can lead to infection and vision loss.



By following these simple do's and don'ts, you can help protect your eyes and ensure the best possible eye health outcomes. If you have any questions or concerns about contact lens care, don't hesitate to talk to your eye doctor. Together, we can promote safe and healthy contact lens practices and protect the health of our eyes.
