Many people who use contact lenses always try to focus on the right selection of style and color. They try to give more attention to the fitting of lenses and completely over look the case in which these lenses are used to store. Lens case is an important thing to consider which is mostly over sighted by many individuals.
However, remember if lenses are not properly stored, they may result in infectious eye diseases. Current researches show that there are many eye diseases that are caused by contaminated and infectious lenses. Many studies also show that most of the cases are never replaced by their users. This is really an alarming situation because when cases are not properly replaced and cared, they become the reservoirs for hazardous bacteria that further threaten the well being of the wearer.
Remember, infectious cases are very dangerous and may lead into serious implications. They may cause grave microbial threats which may lead into the ulceration of cornea. Some symptoms that may cause due to infected cases include teasing, sensitivity to light and irritation.
It is very important to mention that many eye complications in the current day world are just due to the lack of knowledge for the care and maintenance of contact lenses. People do not apply essential techniques in this regard. They just remember that these lenses are fashion accessories and nothing more than that.
Here I am briefly citing some essential tips to protect your lenses and cases. It is mostly recommended that case should be replaced after a month. Moreover, it is also very important to properly care the case. First of all always wash and clean your hands before handling or using lens or a case. Never try to use tap water for cleaning of your lenses. Tap water is usually contaminated water. Always clean the lens with the help of lens solution and properly dry it. Do not allow the solution to touch any part of the body, as it leads into infection. Moreover, totally avoid expired solutions.
