In summer, we all look forward to sunny days, holidays by the sea and endless evenings spent with friends. But for those of us who wear contact lenses, summer can also be a time when we need to pay extra attention to the care of our lenses. In fact, high temperatures, salt water and air conditioning can lead to drying out of the lenses and a decrease in wearing comfort. In this section, we'll look at how to prevent contact lenses from drying out in the summer and keep your lenses comfortable to wear at all times.
Imagine you are at the beach, sunbathing and enjoying the sun's rays. Suddenly, you feel an uncomfortable sensation of dryness in your eyes. This can be caused by a combination of salt water, sand and wind. To avoid this unpleasant feeling, the following tips can be followed:
1. Hydration is the key: make sure you drink enough water during the day. By staying well hydrated, you will help keep your eyes moist and prevent your lenses from drying out. You can also get special eye drops to help keep your eyes moist and fresh.
2. If you plan to spend all day at the beach or pool, consider wearing your glasses during the day and putting your contacts in at night. This will reduce the risk of your lenses drying out and protect your eyes from the sun's rays.
3. Invest in a good quality solution for cleaning and storing your contact lenses. Cheap solutions may contain preservatives that can irritate your eyes and cause dryness. Quality solutions contain ingredients that help keep your lenses moist and comfortable.
4. Avoid air conditioning: air conditioning can be a big enemy of contact lenses in the summer. It dries out the air and thus your eyes. If possible, limit the time you spend in air-conditioned areas or use a humidifier to help keep the humidity in the room.
5. Wear daily disposable lenses: if you wear daily disposable contact lenses, you can throw them out after a few hours of wear and put in a new pair. This will ensure that your eyes stay fresh and moist.
6. Don't forget your sunglasses: Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but they also help keep moisture in your eyes by preventing wind and dust from entering.
Now imagine you've returned from the beach and are about to have dinner with friends. By following these tips, you are still comfortable wearing your contacts and can enjoy the evening without the uncomfortable feeling of dryness in your eyes. Caring for contact lenses in the summer doesn't have to be difficult, just follow a few simple rules and enjoy the sunny days without worry.
