General contact lens care

Most contact lens related problems are caused by lack of hygiene or improper cleaning procedures

Always clean your hands thoroughly before handling your lenses

Always use the cleaning system advised by your optician.  Cheaper systems may be available, but can be ineffective.  We always offer solutions at prices competitive with supermarkets, but we always offer you the professional advice you deserve

Always follow the solution instructions

Never lick your lenses (saliva has an incredible concentration of bacteria)

Never use household cleaning products (washing up liquid etc.)  you may kill the bacteria but you will also kill the delicate cells on the front of your eye!

Never use any one else's contact lenses

Never sleep in your lenses - unless otherwise advised by your optician
