How to Care for Your Color Contacts

To keep your eyes in good conditions, you'll have to properly look after your colored contacts, as carelessness could have unwelcome effects. You need to give your colored lenses the same care and attention you do for normal contact lenses.

The first and most important factor you need to take into account is where you buy your colored lenses. Always follow the proper practices for buying contacts, as described by the Federal Drug Administration, and get your lenses from a respectable seller that requires a prescription.

To guard against infection, follow the instructions provided by the contacts manufacturer about cleaning the lenses. You'll also need to remember the following:

  • Don't keep your contacts in for more time than your eye care professional advises.
  • Replace your lenses when necessary, and take them out before going to bed.
  • Before touching your contacts, wash your hands then thoroughly dry them with a lint-free cloth.
  • Don't keep your lenses in any other solution, including water and saline. It is recommended to keep the lenses only in the solution provided for the contacts.
  • Rub your contacts between your fingers to clean them then rinse with lens solution.
  • Don't use the solution more than once, and don't add new solution to an old bottle.
  • You risk contamination by transferring the solution to another container, so keep it in its original packaging.
  • Keep the solution bottle as sterile as you can. Do not let the tip touch anything.
  • Rinse the case for your contacts with lens solution to keep it clean. Leave it outside to air-dry.
  • Once every three months, replace your contacts case. Always replace any case that has broken to prevent contamination.
  • Take out your contacts if you're swimming, or in a hot tub or Jacuzzi.
