Contact Lens Safety

Contact Lens Safety and Ordering

When it comes to contact lens wear, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), the AOA (American Optometric Association) and the AAO (American Academy of Optometry) want to reinforce that contact lenses are safe when you practice good hygiene procedures while handling lenses.

Exercise Proper Hand Washing:

Wash hands thoroughly with Soap & Water for at least 20 seconds, followed by hand drying with unused paper towels.

Disinfect contact lenses:

Either dispose of daily disposable lenses each evening or regularly disinfect monthly and two-week lenses.

Discontinue Usage if Sick:

Those that feel ill with cold or flu-like symptoms should cease contact lens wear.

That said: With the day to day changes surrounding COVID-19, if you are a contact lens wearer and have less than a 3-month supply left, we highly recommend that you place an order now. Inventory levels are good right now and we are shipping orders at no charge to our patients.

We will extend contact lens prescription expiration dates on a case by case basis; we understand these are frustrating times which call for unconventional solutions. We want to help our patients in any way we can.

CALL or TEXT 734-854-3937 or email to place your order.

PLEASE NOTE: Our office will be open to care for our patients’ URGENT and EMERGENCY EYE CARE. Patient’s temperature will be taken upon entering our office.

If you are picking up supplements, glasses or contact lenses DO NOT ENTER. Please call or text and we will deliver to your vehicle.
