Contact Lens Safety Tips

Taking good care of your contacts is important to help prevent any eye infection and to ensure that your contacts are comfortable to wear all day:

  • Do not store or rinse lenses in any non-sterile water, including tap water.
  • Do not swim, shower or use a hot tub while wearing soft contact lenses.
  • Do not use saliva or put lenses in mouth to rewet.
  • Do not wear lenses longer than prescribed.
  • Discard any soft contact lenses that are damaged or dehydrated.
  • Avoid using aerosols when wearing contact lenses.
  • Discard any remaining solution in your lens case before disinfecting your lenses again.

To reduce risk and exposure to our patients and staff, we have decided to limit office capacity to 50% to allow more time for sanitizing between patients and to avoid crowds within the office.

New Stamford hours: Monday-Friday 11am-6:30pm, Saturdays 11am-6pm, closed on Sundays.
New Danbury hours: Monday-Friday 11am -6:30pm, Saturdays 11am-6pm, Sundays 12pm-5pm.

New Office Policies: Due to the limited number of appointments we can offer at this time, our office will require a credit card number on file to book an appointment. If you do not show and do not cancel or reschedule 24 hours in advance your card will be charged. Please also be aware that we will be requiring a digital retinal image to screen the health of each patient’s eyes. To see our COVID-19 practice protocol, please click here.
