- CONTACT LENS -
Contact lenses are medical devices that require proper wear and care. They can be worn to correct vision as well as for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. In Singapore, all contact lenses, even purely cosmetic ones, require a prescription. They must be prescribed and properly fitted by a registered Eye Care Professional, such as an ophthalmologist, optometrist, or a specially licensed optician.
An eye examination is needed to determine an individual’s suitability for contact lenses. This typically includes a refraction to determine the actual power of the lens, an evaluation on your visual needs, eye structure, and an assessment of the health of the eye.
Prescriptions for contact lenses and glasses may be similar but are not interchangeable and a re-examination should be done on a yearly basis to update your prescription.
By buying and wearing contact lenses without medical guidance and a valid prescription, you may put yourself at risk for serious, even eye blinding infections.
It is essential that you learn and practise good hygiene when handling contact lenses and follow your Eye Care Professional’s instructions for contact lens wearing and replacement schedules. Here are some simple tips to keep in mind while wearing your lenses.
【DOs and DON’Ts】
- Wash your hands thoroughly with a mild soap and dry with a lint-free towel before handling your lenses.
- Inspect your lens before putting it into your eye to ensure that it is clean and free of any tears or debris.
- Insert and remove your lenses in the same order (left then right or vice versa) to avoid any mix up.
- Remove lenses before you go swimming
- Remove your lenses immediately should you experience any eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, or redness of the eye and promptly contact your Eye Care Professional.
- Touch the lens with your fingernails and never use tweezers or tools to remove lenses from the lens container unless specifically indicated for that purpose.
- Wear your lenses beyond the recommended time.
- Share contact lenses with others.
- Use saliva, tap water or anything other than the recommended solutions for lubricating/ wetting lenses.
- Put lenses in your mouth.
- Wear expired lenses.
Infections in contact lens wearers are often found among individuals who improperly store, handle, or disinfect their lenses. That is why proper use and care of your lenses and lens care products including lens cases are essential for the safe use of these products.
DID YOU KNOW THAT…
- To clean lenses, it is recommended that each lens should be rubbed in the palm of the hand with a few drops of solution for a few seconds, even if using a “no rub” product, then rinse and place lenses in a clean case filled with fresh disinfecting solution. Thorough cleaning removes eye-produced protein, calcium build-up, and other debris such as cosmetics.
- Even though your lens case looks clean, bacteria and other micro-organisms can form biofilm which prevents the disinfectant in the contact lens solution from working on the bacteria. Therefore it is best to replace the case at least every three months.
- To clean contact lens case, rub the case with clean fingers for at least five seconds, rinse with contact lens disinfecting solution and then wipe dry with a lint-free cloth. Cleaning should be done on a daily basis.
- Never use tap water in any area of your lens care, including rinsing the lenses and lens case as tap water contains micro-organisms, chlorine, minerals and metal particles which can lead to serious eye infections through microbial contamination. Always make sure that your hands are dry before lens handling.
- Saline solution and rewetting drops are not lens disinfectants and are not effective for this purpose. Use a recommended disinfecting or multi-purpose solution instead.
