Boynton Beach, FL Optometrist, Dr. Salvatore DeCanio Advocates Proper Contact Lens Care for Eye Safety

The single best way to avoid eye infections is to follow proper contact lens care guidelines as prescribed by an optometrist. Depending on the type of contact lens used, there are different methods for keeping them clean and keeping eyes healthy. Disposable extended-wear soft senses need the least amount of care where conventional soft lenses need extensive care. Dr. Salvatore DeCanio provides patients with specific instructions for how to properly clean and care for their contact lenses. At his Boynton Beach, FL practice, Dr. DeCanio works with patients to prevent eye problems caused by patient error in the maintenance and care of contact lenses.

The first step in the eye care process is taking care of contact lenses. If they are not cleaned and maintained properly it can seriously harm the eyes. Dr. DeCanio lets patients know the ins and outs of how to take care of their contact lenses and eyes. Before anyone touches their contact lenses, they should first wash their hands and dry them in a lint-free towel. Make sure to use sterile contact solution to clean and store contact lenses in.

In some cases, eye infection can lead to vision loss; proper eye care is the best way to preserve clear sight that can last a lifetime. For those who are suffering from redness, pain, tearing, increased light sensitivity, blurry vision or swelling as a result of contact lenses, contact Dr. DeCanio as soon as possible. Patients should also receive regular eye exams as a preventative measure. As with traditional glasses, contact lens prescriptions expire after time. Those who have accurate and appropriate prescriptions are less likely to have eye problems further down the line.
