You May Never Cleaned Up Your Contact Lenses

Those who wear contact lenses on a daily basis are likely to experience some confusing thoughts about cleaning and care every day, such as: 

  • Was it clean or not?
  • The cutting of a cleaning process should be fine. 
  • Oh God, I think my nail scratched the lens when I was rubbing it. 
  • It is obviously a monthly disposable, why did it become blurred after only a few days of wear?

It is of course best to realize the freedom of daily disposable, whereas after taking into account the economic factors ...... 

Let me tell you loudly the fact that those others who are comfortable wearing monthly and seasonal disposable lenses for a prolonged period of time may be more capable of cleaning and caring for them than you. 

Here’s a quick explanation of why your monthly or seasonal disposable contact lenses are uncomfortable after only a few wears, as well as the proper and convenient way to maintain the life of your contact lenses. 

Deposited tear proteins 

Not only do they make the lenses blurry, but they can also hurt your eyes

One of the major reasons for discomfort after a few wears is -- tear protein deposits. 

One response of the eye, contact lenses, as a foreign substance to the eye, progressively adhere to tear proteins in the tear fluid from the moment they are put on. 

It may not be perceived when the new lenses are fine to use. However, suppose the cleaning is not performed well over time. In that case, impurities such as tear proteins will be deposited on the surface of the lenses and block the air permeability of the lenses, which will progressively turn the smooth lenses into「frosted」lenses, while eventually making the oxygen permeability and the clarity of the lenses suffer a great loss.

It is not only that the life of the lenses is shortened, but also that the deteriorated proteins left on the lenses are more likely to hurt our eyes when they repeatedly come into contact with the eye surface. 

Allergic reactions are more likely to occur following repeated contact of deteriorated proteins with the cornea and conjunctiva, where mild allergy is expected to cause eye redness and ocular foreign body sensation, which may lead to severe conditions such as subepithelial infiltration of the cornea and even sterile corneal ulcers.
