The American Optometric Association offers the following recommendations for contact lens wearers:
Always wash and thoroughly dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses as directed by your optometrist. Rub the contact lenses with your fingers and rinse them thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in multipurpose solution that completely covers each lens.
Store lenses in the proper lens storage case, and replace the case at least every three months. Clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings.
Use only products recommended by your optometrist to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops do not disinfect lenses.
Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
See your optometrist for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.
