CONTACT LENS WEARERS
We want to offer some guidance and reassurance on what's best to do when it comes to ordering and applying your contact lenses for the coming weeks.
If your continuous supply of contact lenses is already processed with home delivery and paid for via direct debit, you don’t need to take any action, this will also continue as normal.
Before we closed our stores 23rd March 2020 we changed all our Direct Debit patients on automatic shipment to home delivery so you will stll get your contact lenses.
There is currently no evidence to suggest any correlation between the usage of contact lenses and the spread of COVID-19 or a Coronavirus infection related to contact lens use.
To help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, as prescribed by your EyeStyle Centre Contact Lens Practitioner. These include following good hygiene practices. We strongly recommended you do not wear contact lenses when generally unwell, for example when you have a cold or flu, and wear your spectacles until you are fully recovered.
Good hygiene is a must when handling your contact lenses, even more so with the current circumstances. Always make sure you wash your hands for 20 seconds and dry them thoroughly with a towel when:
Handling contact lenses and lens cases
Applying contact lenses (even if the lens is new and directly from the packaging)
Removing your contact lenses
It's important to also remember not to touch your face with unwashed hands.
