Practicing good hand hygiene before handling your contact lenses is essential. This is especially important during these times.
Always wash your hands well before touching your eyes and handling your contact lenses. Use a mild non-cosmetic soap which is oil and fragrance free and dry your hands thoroughly after with a clean towel or tissues. It is also important to ensure that your nails are kept short and clean.
If you just applied alcohol based hand sanitizer to your hands give them time to dry before wearing your contact lenses!
