Love at First Sight Starts with Healthy Eyes: Top Tips for Contact Lens Wearers

Valentine's Day is a time when we celebrate love, and cherished moments with our loved ones. Whether you're gazing into the eyes of a loved one or taking in the breathtaking beauty of the world around you, healthy eyes enrich every moment and enhance every experience. But amidst the flowers, chocolates, and heartfelt gestures, there's something equally precious that we must not overlook: our vision. After all, love at first sight truly begins with healthy eyes. 

For many, the choice between contact lenses and spectacles is personal, both correcting vision. Some prefer the convenience of contact lenses, offering versatility and freedom.

But with this freedom comes responsibility – the responsibility to properly care for your contact lenses and, by extension, your eyes. This is where taking care of your lenses and your eyes becomes important. Here are some top tips for contact lens wearers. 

Cleanliness and Replacements

Always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling your contact lenses. This helps prevent the transfer of dirt, bacteria, and other impurities to your lenses and eyes.

Adhere to the recommended replacement schedule for your contact lenses. Replacing them as advised by your eye care professional helps prevent complications and ensures optimal vision correction.

Contact Lens Solutions

Only use quality contact lens solutions. Using the wrong solution can lead to discomfort or even eye infections. Oculus Curae carries the Aqua Naina Contact Lens Solution a multipurpose solution designed to thoroughly rinse, cleanse, disinfect, and store your contact lenses. Our solution goes beyond basic cleaning, actively removing protein deposits daily to ensure your lenses stay clean and comfortable throughout the day. 

Keep your contact lenses away from water, including tap water and swimming pools. Water can introduce harmful microorganisms to your lenses, increasing the risk of eye infections.

We offer Aqua Naina Sterile Saline Solution, a PRESERVATIVE FREE sterile buffered isotonic saline solution. Designed with meticulous attention to detail, this solution is a testament to our commitment to providing contact lens wearers with the safest, most convenient, and most effective contact lens solution available in the market. 

Regular Eye Exams

Schedule regular comprehensive eye exams with your eye care provider to monitor your eye health. Your eye care professional can also provide personalised recommendations based on your eye health and lifestyle. We understand the significance of maintaining optimal eye health. That's why we offer Vita Naina AREDS 2 Eye Vitamins & Mineral Supplement – a natural supplement formulated to support macular and retinal health, particularly for those with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Inspired by the findings of the landmark AREDS 2 study, our supplement is tailored with essential nutrients to help slow the progression of AMD, preserve vision, and promote overall eye health.
