If you're dealing with vision problems, you're likely familiar with the challenges that come with wearing contact lenses. These can sometimes become dry and uncomfortable. But if you’re using Biotrue contact lenses, then you’re using one of the best there are in the market. Their ONEday contact lenses are disposable, meaning you can use a fresh pair each day, and they're all about keeping your eyes comfy and moist.

However, taking care of them and keeping things clean is key, especially since you're wearing them right on your eyes. So, in this blog post, we’ll give you some important tips on how to keep your Biotrue contact lenses are clean, fresh, and comfortable all day long.

 

Keeping Your Biotrue Contact Lenses Fresh All Day

Never touch your contact lenses with dirty hands.

Before you even think about putting in your lenses, especially when you use your bare hands, make sure they’re super clean and sanitised. Simply using soap and water is perfect, but make sure to clean even under your fingernails to prevent dirt and bacteria away from your lenses. This way, you can reduce the risk of eye infections and discomfort.

Treat your contact lenses correctly.

Your routine should include treating your contact lenses before popping them in. Rinse the lenses with high-quality lens care products that are compatible with the Biotrue contact lenses you have. This may include multipurpose solutions or saline solutions, whatever your eye care professional recommends. Needless to say, never use tap water to clean your contact lenses since they can introduce harmful bacteria that could irritate your eyes.

Keep your eyes and lenses hydrated.

While Biotrue contact lenses are already equipped with amazing moisture retention technology, you can still use eye drops that your doctor recommends. Just a drop or two in each eye throughout the day could work wonders at keeping your lenses fresh and comfortable.

Don’t use disposable lenses twice.

These lenses are meant to be tossed after each use. Even if you give them a good cleaning, it's not a good idea to reuse disposable contact lenses. Using them more than once could lead to scratches and tears, rendering the lenses unfit for further use.

Additional Hygiene Tips for Your Biotrue Contact Lenses

Aside from the previously mentioned methods, here are a couple more pointers for maintaining proper hygiene while using your Biotrue contact lenses:

  1. Unless your lenses are explicitly approved for extended wear or swimming, it's best to avoid sleeping or swimming with them on.
  2. Be cautious not to expose your lenses to hair sprays, cosmetics, or perfumes, as these substances can stick to the lenses and lead to discomfort.
  3. If you ever feel any discomfort, redness, or irritation, take out your lenses and seek advice from your eye care professional.
  4. It's important to schedule regular visits to your eye care professional for comprehensive eye exams. This ensures that your prescription is current and allows for the overall health of your eyes to be monitored.

 

When you follow these tips and best practices, you can make the most out of your Biotrue contact lenses, especially in keeping them fresh and comfortable all throughout your day. Maintaining a clean routine, storing them correctly, and following the prescribed replacement timeline are crucial in eye care. If you have any questions or concerns about your contact lenses, it’s always a good idea to consult your eye care professional or refer to the instructions provided by Bausch & Lomb. Your eyes deserve the best, after all!
