Contact lenses must be kept moist at all times and must be fully immersed in the care solution when it isn’t needed.After the lens is dried, its service life will be shorten to some extent. If the lens is directly exposed to the air, the water will be evaporated very quickly. Therefore, this situation should be avoided as far as possible in daily use.So, can we continue to use dried contact lens?
However, if the situation is overnight, the contact lens dry time is too long, the lens itself may have a crack or quality change, even if re-bubble open should not continue to use.Such lens has been contaminated with dust and bacteria, continue to wear very grinding eyes, may cause trachoma, corneal inflammation, can be directly discarded.
In short, without the protection of tears or nursing fluids, contact lenses can quickly dry and harden.So usually in the lens for a variety of operations, also don’t delay too long.
