Before touching contact lenses, always wash your hands with soap and water and dry your hands well with a clean, lint-free cloth. Manufacturers recommend rubbing and rinsing contact lenses with contact lens disinfecting solution to clean contact lenses each time you remove them from your eyes. Store contact lenses in the proper lens storage case and replace your case every 3 months or sooner. Manufacturers also recommend rubbing and rinsing a contact lens case after each use with contact lens solution, drying it with clean tissue, and storing it upside down with the caps off after each use. Soak lenses overnight in sufficient contact lens solution to completely cover the lens. Contact lenses should never be stored in water. Only fresh contact lens solution should be used to clean and store contact lenses. Old solution in the storage case must be discarded and not reused or mixed with new solution.
