My Contact Lens Routine


Hi guys! In this post, I will share to you guys about how I take care of my contact lenses; how I put them in, how to get them out and how I wash them. I have been wearing contact lenses since I was fourteen. I was so annoyed with my specs because I wore tudung (scarf) at school and my hair always came out from my scarf. You know when you wear spectacles, then ada lubang kat celah tudung tu and there you go rambut terkeluar. Sangat rimas okay. If you had faced the same problem like I did, then you know the real struggle.

If you guys wondering, my actual power for my right eye is 700 and left eye is 600. But my spectacle power is only 600 for the right and 500 for the left. This is because I can't wear the exact power with spectacles. I will feel dizzy due to the high power. So the optometrist suggested me to lower down my specs power so that I will feel less dizzy and more comfortable. This sounds wacko because my actual power, my spectacles power and contact lenses power are totally different.

My current contact lenses power is now 550 for the right and 450 for the left. A little advice for me here, don't wear the same power for contact lenses as your specs. Because contact lenses are nearer to your eyes so the vision will be more sharp which will cause you dizziness. But it is somehow depends on the person itself. If you are not used to wear with different powers, then just proceed with what you're wearing now.

Put In The Contact Lenses.

1. Washing your hands with soap.

This is one crucial step that you cannot missed. You have to eliminate the bacteria in your hands first before inserting the contact lenses because eyes are so sensitive. After that, dry your hand with a clean cloth/towel. (This is an option). I normally skip this step because I'm afraid that my towel is not sanitary enough.

2. Wear the contacts. 

What I do before put them in my eyes is, once I take them out from the case, I rinse them off first. And then, take your contacts and gently put them in your eyes. Put the contacts that has higher power first. As for me, I put my right contact first. This is to make you see easily and less blurry when you want to put the contact lens for your next eye. And you are done!

3. Bring an eye drop

This is also an option. Some people may feel dryness in their eyes due to hours of wearing contact lenses. I always bring an eye drop with me wherever I go because I may need it later to freshen up my dry eyes and re-wet my contact lenses.

It is from Bausch + Lomb re-nu Multiplus Lubricating & Rewetting Drops for soft contact lenses


Get The Contact Lenses Out.

1. Washing your hands.

Also, the same important step that you cannot missed!

2. Take them off 

You can either rinse them first before store them in the case or place them just like that. Because of my contact lenses solution is from Bausch + Lomb re-nu which is a multi-tasking (rinse and store the lenses), so I don't have to rinse them off. But if you use different solutions for rinsing and storing the lenses, then you must rinse them first before storing the contact lenses.

My contact lens is from Air Optix in Brown

Where To Get?

My solutions and cases are from Bausch + Lomb

Solutions: Any Guardian or Watsons.
Case: Usually when you buy the solutions, you will get the case for free. But you can get the case from any optical store as well.
Contact Lenses: I don't quite agree with the idea on buying contact lenses online so I will buy at any optical store.
Eye Drop: Watsons/Guardian/Pharmacy

  7. I wear contact lens too! :) And hey, my optometrist actually said that you need to dry your hand first before touching the lens 'cos the tap water and the lens solution can't be mixed since they have different ph or something, I forgot. So, if you feel like your towel isn't sanitary enough ( I think the same thing 'bout my towel too lol), you can use tissue instead :) oh, fyi, mine was Air Optix too! but I got the transparent one tho.

    1. I've heard about that. I know it's not good for me to not dry my hand first. It's already become a habit :(

      Actually malas and nak cepat haha but thanks anyway for the advice! I know I should leave my bad habit behind. Air Optix is a good brand. The lens doesn't dry my eyes and it's so comfortable to wear :)

  9. I totally dig your contact lens routine!. I have been considering sporting some contact lens for a while now, but whenever I made up my mind I would get worried on the fact as how would I establish a routine for it. But, your post is a really motivational one and my issue could finally be solved now. Thank you so much for putting together a post highlighting your routine. God Bless You!.
