Contact lens instructions "need to be followed"

The instructions provided with contact lenses serve an important purpose and people need to follow them closely if they are to benefit from safe and effective vision correction, one expert has pointed out.

Dr Jeanette Romualdez-Oo, professional services consultant of Ciba Vision, said that the company provides instructions with its contact lenses so that people can incorporate the vision correction products seamlessly into their everyday lives.

She explained that silicone hydrogel lenses in particular need to be applied safely so people can avoid infection and benefit from better eyesight.

"As silicone hydrogel lenses become more common in the market, consumers must understand the right way to wear their contact lenses," Dr Romualdez-Oo told the Philippine Star.
