Safety On The Go: Top Tips For Contact Lens Wearers With An Active Lifestyle
In today’s day and age, our lives have become so hectic that we often end up putting our health on the back burner, even when we don’t want to. While you may not be able to live a completely stress-free life, there are a few easy ways with which you can maintain your overall wellness.
Developing healthy eating habits, sleeping adequately, and staying physically active are some ways that ensure you keep your mind and body perfectly fit. Making time for a short morning run, or a brisk evening walk or some meditative yoga can do more than just making for great Instagram posts.
The chances are that even if you make efforts to take care of the rest of your body, you might not be giving due weightage to your eye health. Yes, staying active is essential, but so is taking care of your eye health. If you have an active lifestyle, you must consider wearing contact lenses for the many benefits it offers over spectacles.
However, you must know a few things about the wear and care of contact lenses to ensure you enjoy the benefits without any complications. We have listed five top tips to help you maintain your eye health amidst your active lifestyle.
Keep Your Contacts Away From Water
The summer heat may tempt you to pour water over your head or go for a nice evening swim. But, you must avoid swimming while wearing contact lenses, and also try to keep your contacts away from water.  Apart from displacing your lenses, water may also contaminate them with various microbes, which can give rise to severe infections. You can consult with your eye care specialist and discuss protective eyewear options such as goggles.
Similarly, make sure you only use the prescribed lens care solution for rinsing and cleaning your contact lenses. Never use any other liquid on your contact lenses, be it water, saliva, tap water, or river water. Follow your eye care specialist’s instructions carefully to ensure that you maintain proper eyesight and avoid severe eye infections and irritations.
Stay Hydrated To Keep Healthy
Running, jogging, and being active makes the body to sweat more than usual, which naturally leads to dehydration.  in hot & dry conditions, natural tears evaporate from your eyes more quickly.
Drinking plenty of water, using prescribed eye drops and wearing contact lenses that are specifically designed for an active style can help keep your eyes moist and healthy .
Switch To Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Come to think of the time you spend on your contact lens cleaning and care regime. If you use weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or yearly disposable contact lenses, you must be dedicating quite some time towards proper lens care and maintenance. In case you don’t, then it’s a serious cause of concern as improper lens cleaning practices may lead to severe eye infections.
With daily disposable contact lenses, you hardly need any maintenance. You can simply throw the lenses away after each use and use a new pair for your next day. Consult with your eye care specialist about switching to daily disposable contact lenses.
Protect Yourself From UV exposure
Prolonged exposure to UV rays may lead to cataracts, corneal sunburn and, in some cases, even macular degeneration.  Taking the necessary steps to keep your eyes well-protected, especially during the summers, is critical for the safety of your eyes.
So, when you are out and about in the sun, make sure you carry a pair of sunglasses as double protection to safeguard your eyes from UV rays.
