25-31 March: Love Your Lenses Week

Bausch + Lomb UK is delighted to support Love Your Lenses Week 2017.

The first ever Love Your Lenses Week will be taking place from 25 to 31 March 2017 and is the perfect opportunity to remind people to ‘love your lenses’!

Contact lenses are loved by millions of people and, if looked after properly, they are safe. However recent research commissioned by the General Optical Council (GOC) has indicated the extent to which not all contact lens wearers are consistent in their approach to looking after their lenses and, by not having a check-up at least once a year, one in four contact lens wearers (25%) are losing sight of their optician and the advice they can provide.

Your optician will check that your contact lenses are fitting correctly and that your vision is good, and will talk to you about the best ways to care for your lenses to make sure your eyes stay healthy.

If you love your eyes, you should love your lenses. As well as cleaning and storing contact lenses properly, there are other steps that should be taken, such as making sure they never come in to contact with water and always taking them out before going in the bath or shower.

Love Your Lenses Week is an opportunity to celebrate the many benefits that contact lenses can bring while also reminding wearers of the importance of treating their lenses with love and respect.
