Tips for Contact Lens Wearers

Colored contact lenses have become more and more popular as they become more affordable and accessible. (Not to mention the rising popularity of all the light-eyed celebrities: Ashwariya Rai, Hrithik Roshan, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor, and so forth.). Similarly, more and more people are also going for the more subtle vision correction method: prescription contact lenses. Whether they are colored or prescribed, many brides will wear contact lenses on their wedding day. For all those who wear lenses, itchy eyes, protein build-up and rewetting drops is nothing new. We at have put together some tips which will help you to minimize irritation and keep your eyes healthy.

Do ...

  • Clean your lenses regularly with saline solution and/or use protein tablets to avoid protein build-up on the lenses.
  • Visit your optometrist at least once a year for routine check-ups. This is important in maintaining good eye health and safe contact lens wear.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before handling your lenses.
  • Put your lenses in before you put on make-up and take them out before taking off your make-up.
  • Handle contact lenses over a clean towel. If your drop your lenses, they will stay clean and undamaged, and you'll also find them more easily!
  • Choose an oil-free moisturizer.
  • Store your lenses in the case made for them and keep the case clean.
  • Blink your eyes frequently while under a hair drier or blower to keep your eyes from getting too dry.

Don't ...

  • Use cream soaps. They can leave a film on your hands which can transfer to the lenses.
  • Put contact lenses in your mouth or moisten them with saliva, which is full of bacteria and a potential source of infection.
  • Use homemade saline solutions. Improper use of homemade saline solutions has been linked with a potentially blinding condition among soft lens wearers.
  • Use hand creams or lotions before handling contacts. They can leave a film on your lenses.
  • Use waterproof mascara which cannot be easily removed with water and may stain soft contact lenses.
  • Use hairspray after putting on your contacts. If you must, close your eyes and spray. Keep eyes closed for a few seconds after using hair spray.

And our final piece of advice: DON'T forget how gorgeous you are!
