What kind of contacts you have? They are rigid contact lenses or soft contact lenses?

As to the rigid contact lenses, it is very important to you to clean your lenses immediately when you remove them rather than prior to inserting the lens. You need to use a daily cleaner on the surface of the lenses after removing them. Rub the lens in the palm of your hand and rinse thoroughly with saline.The lens should then be stored in soaking solution at least four hours to disinfect them. They will then be ready for you to wear again. To insert, simply rinse the solution off with fresh saline and apply wetting solution prior to insertion.

As to the soft contact lenses, never let soft contact lenses become dry. Never soak them in tap or distilled water. If lenses dry out, they will become brittle. Should this occur, however, soak the lenses in saline for two to three hours. Then, if the lenses do not appear damaged, continue with your disinfecting regimen. If the lenses are uncomfortable after you insert them, remove them immediately and call your doctor.
