Drum roll on the countdown to… SPRING BREAK!
It is ALSO for sure a great time for all of us at Dr.Shwom’s office to remind you to be cautious of when and how to wear your contact lenses so you can enjoy yourself!
The American Optometric Association *AOA* has created the perfect “Contact Lens Tool Kit” that we definitely wanted to share with our customers!
1st: Take your contact lenses out before going to sleep, no matter how late you are up (unless your eye care provider says otherwise).
2nd: Pack enough contact lens supplies and a spare pair of glasses
3rd: Never swim or shower in contact lenses
4th: Never “top off” solution, or add new solution to old solution in the case to store contact lenses
5th: Do not wear contact lenses without a prescription from an eye care provider – this includes decorative lenses sold at souvenir shops.
