About GENERIC/STORE BRAND Contact Lens Solutions

Purchase ONLY solutions, which have been prescribed specifically for your lenses and eyes.

Some retail stores sell generic brands of solutions. These solutions are changed every three to six months, depending on company contracts, so what you purchase today with a generic brand or store brand may not be the same solution/product in three months.

The only way to be sure that a generic/store brand product is the same as the name brand you have been using is to check the label. The ingredients must be identical to the brand name product. They must be listed in the same order. Everything must be identical or it is NOT the same product and you should NOT use it unless your physician or contact lens technician says it is okay.

Here, contact lens solutions are prescribed specifically for your lenses and your eyes. Since they vary significantly from one manufacturer to another, do NOT change or substitute unless you first consult with your physician or contact lens technician. Use of inferior solutions may result in lens damage or eye irritation.

  • Remember, like any medical devise, contact lenses must be monitored on a regular basis. Professional follow-up is the most important element in successful long-term wear.
  • Clean your contacts as prescribed
  • Clean your contact lens case daily. Replace your contact lens case monthly.
  • Compliance is of the utmost importance to reduce possible complications.

Fitting and Prescriptions

Contact lens prescriptions are not part of a routine eye exam and constitute a separate examination and fitting process. The fitting of contact lenses should be only performed after a complete examination by one of our doctors. The specialized process of fitting a contact lens to your eyes requires a separate examination and there is a separate charge for this process.

A contact lens prescription is not the same as a prescription for glasses. A contact lens prescription can only be determined after successfully wearing contact lenses during a fitting period without complaint. The process of a contact lens fitting involves many factors; measuring the cornea, lens design, lens material, optical correction of the eye, quality of tear productions, color and comfort. To insure a successful fit, lenses should be worn a significant amount of time. With some patients, modifications to the lens may be necessary to ensure an accurate fit. Only after several follow-up visits, which finalizes the fit, comfort and design of the lens will we consider finalizing a "contact lens prescription".

The continuing evaluation of the fitting characteristics of the lenses is equally important. Contact lens specifications, if incorrectly transcribed and ordered, may be potentially unsafe for a patient to wear. Successful, healthy contact lens wear should also include follow-up visits to insure a proper fit and to review contact lens care procedures.

We are concerned with your visual welfare and are dedicated to the highest level of professional eye care. If you have any questions regarding a contact lens prescription or any other contact lens related question, please feel free to as our staff. We cannot be responsible for contact lenses you elect to purchase elsewhere and cannot validate a prescription for such services without proper authorization.






How To Care for Contacts

The key to avoiding the irritation and infection sometimes associated with contact lens wear is proper cleaning.

There are two main types of lens care systems: heat and chemical disinfection. The appropriate choice depends on the lens type, duration of lens wear and an individual's own biochemistry. Regardless of the type of disinfection system you choose there are a number of common steps that must be followed.
  • Always wash your hands prior to handling your contact lenses.
  • Remove one lens and place it in the palm of your hand. Apply a few drops of a contact soap, usually called cleaning solution. Rub the soap onto both sides of the lens surface to help remove deposits, debris, protein build-up, and any bacterial film. Removing surface deposits and other debris not only contributes to improved vision and comfort but also reduces the risk of infection and allergy. Soft extended-wear contacts may be the most likely to develop a protein build-up that can lead to lens-related allergies.
  • After thoroughly cleaning the lens, rinse it with commercially available sterile saline solution. Homemade saline solutions have been linked to serious eye infections and should never be used.
  • After cleaning and rinsing, lenses need to be disinfected. You and your ophthalmologist will pick the best system for you, but make sure you understand the instructions and follow them. Heat and chemical disinfection methods each require several hours of disinfection time.
  • After disinfecting, rinse the lens with sterile saline before putting it in your eye.
  • Your empty contact lens case should be thoroughly rinsed with warm water and allowed to air dry. All contact lens cases need to be cleaned frequently, including disposable lens cases.










Contacts & Cosmetics

Contacts & Cosmetics

Contact lens wearers who wear cosmetics on a daily basis may be especially vulnerable to eye problems. Misuse of products and adverse reactions to ingredients used in cosmetic formulas cause lens deposits, eye irritation, allergy, dryness, injury and infection. Knowing which products to use and how to use them is important for long-term, problem-free contact lens wear.

Before handling lenses, wash your hands with a mild soap such as Neutrogena, Ivory or a clear glycerin soap. Or, use one of the specialty soaps for contact lens wearers such as AOSoap or Optisoap. Avoid soaps containing cream, deodorant, antiseptics, or heavy fragrances.

Contact lenses should be inserted before any cosmetics are applied to prevent contaminating the lens by makeup and disrupting makeup by tears. Mascara should be used sparingly and only on the outer half of the lashes. Besides being a potential irritant, mascara is frequently a source of infection. Even with the best of care, mascara and eyeliner should be replaced every three months. Use a light touch with eyeliners and shadows, as they may cause blepharitis, an infection of the eyelid that can lead to styes and chalazion. Don't use eye liner pencils inside the lower eyelid. Color pigments can cause irritation, damage contact lenses, or lodge underneath the contact lens and scratch the cornea.

Prevent contamination of your makeup by keeping it dry and avoiding contact with fingers. Keep applicators clean and replace them after approximately three months. Hair spray, deodorant, cologne, mousse, nail polish and nail polish remover should be used before inserting your lenses. If one of these products gets into your eye it can cause permanent damage to the contact lens surface. If you must use hair spray while wearing contacts, close your eyes tightly while spraying and then leave the area quickly. Aerosol mist lingers in the air for some time after spraying.

Never wear contacts when using hair dyes, permanent wave lotions, or medicated shampoos.

Use cosmetics labeled "hypoallergenic," "for contact lens wearers," or "for sensitive eyes." Approximately one in ten women have either a respiratory or skin allergy to perfume. Hypoallergenic brands are designed be free of irritants such as perfumes and lanolin. Lanolin may be used in cosmetics and soaps and is one of the most common allergens, causing redness, itching, and blotchy skin spots.

Wash your hands and remove contact lenses before removing make-up. Your fingers are less likely to be contaminated by pigments, creams and oils from cosmetic products when the lenses are removed first.
