Frequently Asked Questions

Hand sanitiser VS soap and water, which is best when handling contact lenses?

Soap and water is the ideal hand hygiene method in this instance. While hand sanitiser provides disinfection, alcohol-based hand sanitiser may cause discomfort if you pass alcohol from your hands to your eyes via your lenses.

Should I wear gloves when handling my contact lenses?

You do not need to, as long as you’re washing your hands properly with soap and water before you insert or remove your lenses and dry your hands with unused paper towels.

Does COVID-19 cause any changes to my vision or eye health?

You’re more likely to have the common signs and symptoms of COVID-19, such as coughing and a fever as conjunctivitis (pink eye) is believed to only occur in about 1-3% of people infected with COVID-19.
