Treat contact lenses with great care. Studies have shown that many people do not take proper care of their contacts. This can cause infections, irritation, and vision loss. Never use saliva or outdated solution to moisten your contacts, use only approved, sterilized saline solutions. Your mouth has bacteria that can result in eye infections. Wear glasses instead of your contacts to take it easy on your eyes.
Wear a broad-brimmed hat when you go outside. People generally forget about the skin that covers their eyes when thinking about eye care, but the truth is that your eyelids are very important.
