Covid-19 and Contact Lens Wear Safety | #AlconCares Giveaway

All eyes on media as COVID-19 numbers surge. 😔


During this time of anxiety, there can be a lot of unreliable stories and fake news out there. So here's some timely reassurance for contact lens wearers during the COVID-19 pandemic: The answer is Yes!


During the online e-vent I attended last week, I learned that it's completely safe to wear your lenses right now - but having good hygiene is more important than ever! To make sure you have all the facts, I put together 8 top hygiene tips for contact lens wearers.

1. Maintain critical good hygiene habits such as washing your hands, and properly caring for your contact lens. Keep your unwashed hands away from your face. Use a face mask because it also acts as a barrier to touching your face all the time, so it protects you, and others too.


2.  Always wash your hands before handling contact lenses. Remember: alcohol is NOT enough to sanitize your hands when handling lenses. Also, equally important, you should dry your hands too, as this makes it easier to handle the lenses.



3. Don't just clean, disinfect. Use a hydrogen peroxide based solution such as AOSEPT PLUS  with HydraGlyde lens care solution features the HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix, as well as the added strength of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide based solution should be effective against the virus that causes Covid-19.

Triple Action cleaning:

Deeply cleans lenses
Carries away deposits and debris
Lifts away protein
Suitable for all types of contact lenses.

4.  If you get sick, temporarily stop wearing your contact lenses. Temporarily revert to wearing glasses and resume use with fresh, new contact lenses once you return to full health.

5. See your eye care practitioner every 12 to 24 months or as advised by the ECP.

6. Do not top off or add new solution to old solution in the contact lens case when storing lenses. Only use recommended contact lens solution

7. Replace lenses as recommended by the ECP. It's important to  be compliant with recommended replacement schedules.

8. Do not re-use daily disposable lenses even if they are still comfortable. Daily disposables are designed for single-use only and must be discarded in the trash can after each wear.

  2. First time wearing contact lenses, sobrang nangiyak talaga ako, I was a cosplayer that time kaya medyo need talagang mag contact lens. I was not aware that putting solutions is a must. The moment na naging aware ako doon talagang sinisigurado ko palagi na malinis yung ginagamit kong lenses. This blog is really informative. Thanks.

  4. Medyo tiis ganda magsuot ng contact lense noong una pero ganun talaga kapag bago, kalaunan I'll get used to it. Mas madaling alagaan, itabi at hindi nakakasira ng OOTD ang contact lense. Kadalasan ini-enhance pa nito ang beauty ng dating maganda na. Pandemic taught us a lot of things and makes us realize everything. It teach us that our home is the safest place and to exercise proper hygiene na madalas na-neneglect natin. It will be of great help if given the chance to win since nawalan din ako ng work due to pandemic. Slowly bumabangon, fight lang dahil habang may buhay may pag asa. Thank you for this timely and relevant article. You truly rock! God Bless ❤️

  7. I love wearing contacts ❤️ specially during my months of pregnancy and after giving birth. Don't have to put blush on to make my face look lively, because I'm so maputla �� I'm not a funda gurl. Just kilay, cheek tint and liptint/lipstick. Kaya super helpful ng contacts saken. No need to effort para mag ayos dahil wala na din time ��
    Hoping to win. Contacts are so helpful for on-da-go mommas like me ��
    Can't buy a pair right now. Hays

  10. Hygiene is really important to keep our body and love ones safe and healthy especially now with the pandemic. And one part of our body to protect is our eyes akala ko since dapat nating pangalagaan ito hindi na pwedeng magsuot ng contact lenses but with the information you shared ma'am mas nadagdagan ang aming kaalaman ukol dito. Also,as a student na malabo na dn ang paningin I prefer wearing contact lenses for comfortability. I hope mapili ako sa inyong giveaway para mas maging ready ako sa pagsabak sa pasukan na darating.Thank you and Godbless. 😊

  12. I used to wear contact lenses before but I am having a challenge in maintaining it. Since we need to wear face shields now, I will use contact lenses again and these one is a great stuff to start with.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Stay safe, everyone!
