If an ophthalmologist prescribed contact lenses for you, then you need to immediately buy the necessary accessories for them – a storage container and tweezers for manipulation. They will ensure safe and hygienic wearing.
Daily wear contact lenses are stored and carried in a container with a solution, and removed from it and put on with special tweezers. It is advisable to change these accessories at the same time as the lenses in order to avoid the transfer of residual contaminants.

To do this, during breaks in wearing, they must be placed in a container filled with multifunctional solution. Stored in a special liquid, they will be cleansed and also moisturized, which will help to avoid dry eyes.
Each time the lenses must be put in a fresh portion, do not use the solution more than once – pour the old one in the morning, pour the new one in the evening. In this case, you must use the same brand. When buying, make sure it fits your lens type.

The fact is that each eye has its own microflora, not to mention the fact that the eyes, and hence the lenses, can have different parameters. Each compartment closes with its own tightly screwed lid. Every evening you need to fill them with a fresh portion of the multifunctional solution and put the lenses each in its own compartment.
