Health bits: Lenses cases can cause infection
Published 21/02/2011 | 05:00
IF YOU wear contact lenses remember that a dirty case is a major source of infection.
Rinse your case, leave it open to dry after use each day, and replace it monthly. Clean the case each week using a clean toothbrush and contact lens solution.
To disinfect lenses, soak them in solution in a storage case for a specific amount of time.
Never re-use disinfecting solution or top it up. It must be discarded and replaced with fresh solution each time the lenses are stored.
