Safely Wearing Contact Lenses During This Time

Book Appointment

Contact lenses can be worn safely while preventing potential contamination by following the proper contact lens care instructions, which include thoroughly washing, cleaning, and drying your hands prior to handling contact lenses. 

Good hygiene practices as important as ever before

As always, wash your hands with antibacterial soap and water before putting on or taking off contact lenses. Ensure your hands are fully dry with a clean towel thereafter.

Wearing contact lenses when feeling ill

It is recommended to wear glasses instead of contact lenses until you get better, as your eyes may feel more uncomfortable than normal and you might be sleeping more which is not recommended to be done while wearing contact lenses

Keeping up with your supplies

While the best course of action has been to close our physical practices to limit in-person interaction, you can still reorder your contact lenses by ordering directly from our online store. Exclusive rebates, free shipping to your home and 10% off first orders using code BESEEN10 apply to all patients.
