How To Care Contact Lenses?
, for soaking contact lenses is minimal and maximum how many hours per night huh? When we sleep at night whether the contact lens is still soaked with liquid? Or soaked for about 3-4 hours and then the liquid is discarded and stored in a state of no liquid in the lens box?
Hello Juwita, thank you for the question yes at HealthReplies.com.
How to maintain contact lenses basically can vary depending on the brand of contact lens used, which is generally included also how to use, remove and how to store the lens when not in use.
In general, contact lenses when not in use must be stored in a special contact lens storage area (usually included when you buy contact lenses) and soaked in a special liquid contact lens cleaner. This immersion is not determined to be several hours a day or overnight because in principle, the lens must always be submerged by special liquid to clean the contact lenses. If the lens is used often enough, replace the immersion water each time you store the contact lens in its place. But if you use it rarely enough, it is advisable to replace the immersion water at least 1 time per week. It is not recommended to store the contact lens in its container without soaking because it can cause the contact lens to dry and cannot be reused.
But it is strongly recommended to consult first with an ophthalmologist before you finally decide to use contact lenses to get information in advance about ways to use and store it properly. If you are currently using the contact lens, you can follow the explanation as mentioned above.
In addition, keep your eyes and hands clean every time you use the contact lens, do not attach the contact lens to the eye that is experiencing irritation. Store the contact lens at room temperature and close it in the storage area. Do not use contact lenses while sleeping. Use the lens and lens cleaning fluid up to the time period indicated on the package, do not pass this time because it risks increasing the possibility of eye irritation or infection. Follow the other suggestions that are listed on the package and also those that have been recommended by the doctor.
