Skincare & Contact Lens Wearers
Do you wear contact lenses? If so, here are a few things to keep in mind when following your skincare routine. (1) Keep products from entering your eyes. Some ingredients in skincare products can harm your meibomian glands. When these glands are damaged, you can experience uncomfortable symptoms from dry eye disease. (2) Reserve eye creams and treatments for your evening routine after removing your lenses. The skin on the upper and lower lids is fragile, and the possibility of creams, treatments, and oils leaking onto the ocular surface is relatively high. When these formulas get trapped under the lens, they can blur your vision and cause an infection. (3) Wash your hands before putting your contact lenses in and before taking them out.
