Eye exams and eyeglasses from the Leading Eye Care Provider in Herkimer and West Winfield, NY


If you wear soft contact lenses, you should know that recent research suggests that rubbing and rinsing your lenses before soaking them overnight is the best way to rid them of germs and avoid eye infections. This recommendation holds true even if you use a “no-rub” disinfection solution. Moreover, the study pointed out that rubbing and rinsing contacts (in conjunction with soaking) was found to be the most effective cleaning regimen with all multipurpose lens-care solutions used with any type of contact lens. The take-away message here is that it is better to be safe than sorry. Failure to rub contacts prior to soaking is more likely to leave germs adhering to the lenses, where they  are less susceptible to disinfection. Don’t cut corners when it comes to cleaning contacts and using fresh cleaning solution. Contact lenses can be an exciting alternative to glasses because they give the wearer a glasses-free look and hassle-free wear all day long
