Contact lens cleaning method

At the same time, these deposits accumulate on the surface of the lens and become a place for bacteria to breed. Therefore, after wearing contact lenses that are not cleaned for a long time, it is easy to cause red eyes and dry eyes. In severe cases, it will cause diseases such as keratitis, conjunctivitis and even blindness.

First take out a lens and place it in the palm of your hand, drop an appropriate amount of the care solution, and then gently rub the pulp of the index finger of the other hand for about 20 seconds, then turn the lens over and rub the other side. After both sides have been thoroughly rubbed, use small tweezers to pick up the lens, rinse it off with a flowing care solution, and repeat the above steps to clean another lens. Finally, put clean contact lenses into the double box to soak for the next time you wear them.
