If you are new to contact lenses, you will undoubtedly get frustrated while learning to apply and remove your lenses. It will get easier each time you wear them.

Here are a few things to remember about contact lenses:
Since everyone’s eyes are different, it may take a while for your eyes to adjust to their lenses. The contact lens rests on tears that are always on the cornea.

Follow the wearing schedule that was written down for you. It takes time for the eyes to adjust so keeping to the schedule is important. If you continue to have a problem, call the office for assistance.

Understand that it is impossible to predict how your contact lenses will fit and the time it will take for your eyes to adjust to the lenses. Be patient and call us if you have any problems or concerns.

Here are a few tips on maintaining your contact lenses
Handle your contact lenses with care. They are fragile and can break or tear easily.

Keep your lens case clean. Do not use yesterday’s solution.
If dirt or dust is blown under your lens, remove the lens, clean it and reapply the lens to your eye when it is comfortable to do so.

Aerosol sprays, solvents, fumes and pen ink can damage your lenses. Always wash your hands before handling your lenses. Try to use soaps that are not rich in creams or fragrances. Use a lint-free towel to dry your hands.

Make sure you have a back-up pair of glasses.

Don’t over-wear your contact lenses. Less is always better when it comes to wearing time. Ask us about the contact lenses and new materials that are safe for extended wear.

It is important that you have at least 3 hours of lens wear time before your next appointment. Remove your lenses if your eyes become uncomfortable, turn red or show any other symptoms of irritation.

Ladies: apply your lenses first, then your make-up.

Call the office immediately if you have any problems or questions.
It is important to come to the office yearly. Even if the lenses still feel great and you are not having any problems,
Drs. Markis-Meyer and associates need to make sure the contact lenses are fitting properly. Poor fitting lenses might still “feel” ok but could be compromising the health of the eyes. This is why contact lens prescriptions expire in a year per FDA requirements.
