How to Clean Contacts


Soft Contact Lenses          Contact lenses are the eyeglass wearer’s dream. They eliminate the need for wearing unsightly glasses. They also improve peripheral vision as compared to wearing eyeglasses because the contact covers the eye completely around the edge. Contact lenses have advanced greatly over the years from hard, difficult to wear lenses to soft hydrophilic contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are so comfortable today that you do not even know that you are wearing them. They come in many different styles such as oxygen permeable, and are made of combinations of different materials. Follow the steps below to learn how to clean your soft contact lens.
