How To Clean Contact Lenses Splashed With Rain Water?
Hello, I’m a 17-year-old student. This afternoon I was riding a motorbike using contact lenses (minus), coated with ordinary glasses (non-minus), it was quite drizzling at that time, then a few drops of rain poured into my contact lens, so my eyes were runny and sore, I rushed ” plg to the rmh and forgot to dry my hands when removing the contact lens, can the contact lens be used again? Or is there a way to clean the contact lens?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically rain water does not contain anything that can damage your contact lenses directly. Exposed to rain drops will not cause certain damage to your contact lenses. You can wash your contact lenses using contact lens special fluid as usual. Make sure you don't get dirt or dust off your contact lenses. Note that you should always use a special contact lens liquid to clean and store your contact lenses.
The most dangerous thing to do is to remove contact lenses without washing your hands first. this can cause dirt or microorganisms attached to your hands to enter directly into your eyes. Washing contact lenses with hands that have not been washed is also not recommended. It's a good idea to make sure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap before you install or remove your contact lenses.
