7 Helpful Sun Tips for Contact Lens Wearers ...


If you wear contacts you may be wondering what you can do to prevent your eyes from drying out this summer, so here are a few tips for contact lens wearers that will keep your eyes healthy and moist. I remember the day I found out I needed glasses, and although I was a dramatic teenager, I was literally devastated. My doctor then suggested contacts since I was so against wearing glasses, and looking like a typical awkward teenage nerd. But even then I had a hard time getting them in my eyes and maintaining healthy eye care habits. As the years went on, I learned a few tricks to help me get by in the heat and sun each summer. And as a result, I am more than happy to finally expose all these wonderful secrets to healthy eye care. So here they are 7 helpful sun tips for contact lens wearers!

1. Wear Sunglasses

I know this seems like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised at how many people fail to put on sunglasses when the sun is out. And if you have experienced this firsthand, you will know it really hurts, especially if you wear contacts. So of all of the important tips for contact lens wearers that I have to share, I think this is one of the most important ones. Don’t forget those sunglasses, they prevent your eyes and contacts from drying out, not to mention they protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Leaving your eyes exposed in the sun for too long has been shown to worsen your vision and even harden your contacts when they dry out, which can really hurt. Believe me, I have been there! So don’t miss this opportunity to fashionably accessorize your summer outfits with a smashing pair of sunglasses. There are some great styles out this season so take advantage of them while you also protect your eyes- and contacts.
