To help you get started, here are a few contact lens tips on keeping you and your eyes safe during COVID-19.
Keep Your Hands Clean
The first rule of thumb when dealing with COVID-19 is to keep it, and all your other fingers clean at all times. This means washing your hands regularly with disinfectant soap for at least 20 seconds. This is especially important if you’re about to handle your contact lenses. According to one of the seller offering best contact lenses price in Pakistan, “Keeping your hands clean can help you half of the way as you get protected and safe from the virus by regularly disinfecting your contact lenses”
Disinfect Your Contact Lenses
It would be best to regularly disinfect reusable contact lenses and contact lens cases with contact lens cleaner only. Never use saliva to clean your contact lenses. Not only is it gross, but your tongue is full of germs and a sure-fire way to getting sick and putting you at risk of an eye infection.
Use Fresh Solution Always
Solutions are scientifically designed to clean and maintain your contact lenses. It’s important to remember that to keep up with your body’s changes, your contact lenses’ lifespan and the solution don’t have a very long shelf-life. Never use the old solution on your eyes or contact lenses, and never try to mix fresh solutions. Stick to new solutions at all times to ensure sustainable and safe contact lenses.

Visit An Optometrist Once A Year
Your eyesight is one of the most important investments you can make for your health. Always use eye drops to make your eyes clean.

The point is – don’t put your eye check-ups on the back burner.
The Beginning Is Insight

So, keep safe, keep calm, and keep your hopes up – after all, no one ever blinded themselves from looking on the bright side.
