  • Dont opt for brands without consulting your eye care professional. The water content and the shape of brands may differ. It is not advisable to change the brand you are comfortable with. Frequent change of brands should be avoided.
  • While choosing a contact lens, factors such as quality, suitability and guarantee are important. Insist on a receipt and guarantee.
  • In the case of disposable contact lenses, dont use them beyond the recommended period. Replace the contact lenses in time to avoid any harm. Also dont use an old prescription while buying new ones meant for long-term use. As per regulations, prescriptions expire after a limited period.
