Contact lens hygiene

  • Always respect your replacement schedule prescribed by your
    • 15 days for acuvue,
    • 1 month for biofinity & air optix
    • Every day for dailies (clarity, 1day acuvue, MyDay)
  • Always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before inserting or removing your lenses
  • Take care not to catch the lens or your eye with your fingernails – keep them short
  • Work over a clean, flat surface
  • Use saline solution or Opti-Free / Biotrue to rinse your lenses and case – do NOT rinse them with tap water as this can cause eye infections
  • To minimize the possibility of mixing your lenses up, it is a good idea to get into the habit of always inserting and removing the same lens first
  • Do not shower/bath in your lenses
  • Do not sleep in your contact lenses
  • If you experience any painful eye or red/pink eye stop wearing contact lenses and consult with an eye doctor
  • It is not recommended to swim with your contact lenses in due to the risk of infection from the water – prescription swimming goggles may be available, but please discuss this with your contact lens practitioner as other options may also be available

Lens cleaning (NOT FOR DAILIES)

Always use the care system recommended to you in the clinic.

  1. Place the lens into the palm of your hand and put two or three drops of the cleaning

solution onto the lens

  1. Rub the lens gently but firmly with the little finger of your other hand for approximately thirty seconds; turn the lens over and rub the other side
  2. After rubbing the lens, it is essential to rinse it with saline solution or Opti-Free / Biotrue in order to remove the loosened debris and any remaining cleaner; rinse the cleaning solution off the lens by rubbing the lens between your thumb and forefinger
  3. Fill the storage case with fresh Opti-Free / Biotrue solution and place the lens into the correct side of the storage case – this soaking solution must be changed on a daily basis
  4. If you wear a lens in the other eye, repeat steps 1-4 for the second lens
  5. Leave your contact lenses to soak overnight in the closed case or for a minimum of four hours

The contact lens case should be replaced with a new one every month

This was my fist time with Dr Giannie... and it was an amazing one . My son was recomended by his pediatrician to go see the eye doctor and we came here . We had an appointment and we didn’t have to wait long . They where very professional and nice to my son and i . The doctor was very good at explaining everything and recommending different things for my son’s eye care . The process of getting the glasses was also fast and she was amazing at recommending the type of glasses my son needs in order for them to last longer. Overall it was a great experience and i will definitely be back for him and in the future for myself. Thank you doctor.read more

Avoid the disappointment. I now have a... pair of glasses that I paid for and cannot wear, they will not even give me a partial credit on them. I took them back to get fixed once and they got them wrong again, they want me to keep coming back and wasting my time. Even if this was "a lab issue", they need to stand behind their products and vendors and make things right.Mind you, this is not my only time at the practice, I have been loyal to this doctor since she worked at Macy's optical. Also, once you bring a problem to their attention, all they do is deny it so I am sure they will try to deny what I'm saying. I started being disappointed with this place because I liked to go see the doctor that owns the practice, but they kept making appointments with her and then calling me to say she wouldn't be in, this happened 3 times and another time they allowed me to come in and sit there and wait, until I realized the doctor was not in.I ended up coming back another day and seeing their other "highly recommended" doctor, she was disappointing. They couldn't even give me my prescription that day and said they would fax it but the new doctor was very good at telling me how I should buy the contacts through them. They kept faxing over the incorrect prescription and I had to get 1800-contacts to call them and get the right one.Don't waste your time and money.read more
