Stop topping off solution!
What is “topping off” solution?
When we refer to “topping off” solution, we mean when you actually re-fill the contact lens case on top of the already used solution, instead of using fresh and clean solution. Why does it matter? Well, it matters and it’s not a good idea to top off your contact lens case, even if it is just once because it dilutes the disinfecting power of the fresh solution, which could very much leave you at risk for an eye infection.
I already topped off my solution. What now?
You shouldn’t have done that. You have to throw it away immediately. Not only you increase the chances of having an eye infection, but you are doing it on purpose. On top of that, the fresh solution you just topped off, will have to be thrown away.
Can I tell if I have an eye infection?
The first signs of any kind of eye infection begin with experiencing of any these symptoms, such as redness, tearing, blurred vision, pain or feeling like something is in your eye. If this should happen, call your eye doctor asap. Remember to use fresh solution each time you take your contact lenses out.
