If you wear contact lenses for 8-12 hours per day, it is important to take good care of your eyes. Here are 3 easy tips to help you keep your eyes healthy and comfortable:

Contact lenses come in two types:
- Daily disposable contact lenses are designed to be thrown away after each use. They are a good option for people with dry eyes who need to use eye drops more than twice a day. Daily disposable contact lenses are preservative-free, which is better for eye health in the long term.
- Multiple-use contact lenses can be worn for several days or weeks before being replaced. They are a good option for people who only experience dry eyes occasionally. Multiple-use contact lenses contain preservatives, which is not recommended for daily use.
2. Remove your contact lenses immediately when you get home
When you get home, you should wash your hands thoroughly and remove your contact lenses. Then, switch to wearing glasses to give your eyes a break and allow them to receive oxygen fully.
