Keeping your eyelids clean means keeping your contacts clean too!

You may not realize it but when your eyes get irritated, your contact lenses may not be the root cause. We often attribute our eye irritation to our contact lenses and think that they’re dirty or not cleaned well enough. Sometimes, you may also attribute it to the climate, maybe it’s too cold or too hot that’s why your contact lenses are reacting.

Maybe the first thing that you should do is check your eyes or your eyelids for that matter especially if you’re fond of wearing make-up. When applying make-up, sometimes some of its particles find their way to your contact lenses either on application or throughout the day when your eyelids come in contact with your eyes. These make-up debris remain in your contact lenses until you clean them off (which should be a nightly ritual for you when you wear eye make-up all the time). Sometimes, you also tend to forget to remove your make-up due to tiredness and fatigue which does not bode well for your eyes.

That is why OcuSoft has introduced several hypoallergenic make-up remover products that are gentle on both your eyes and your contact lenses and are guaranteed to keep your face and eyelids squeaky clean. One of these is the OcuSoft Lid Scrub Foaming Eyelid Cleanser. It dispenses a pre-lathered foam that is easy to use on your eyelids for removing cosmetics. OcuSoft also has the Ocusoft Lid Scrub – Pre-Moistened Pads that are recommended by doctors to remove oil, debris and desquamated skin. When your eyelids are free of makeup, then your contact lenses are also free from debris making them refreshed and comfortable.

If you’re looking for a mascara that doesn’t flake and leave residue in your eyes and contact lenses, OcuSoft has their own hypoallergenic Mascara that has no lash-building fibers which are generally the cause of mascara-debris in the eyes.
