Don't Get Makeup On Your Contact Lenses. Wear your contacts before applying makeup, because any makeup residue on your hands, such as mascara, can easily transfer to your lenses.
It's not uncommon for people to get concealer, eyeliner or mascara on their contact lenses. If that happens, remove the lens right now and clean the makeup with solution (while making sure to dispose of the lens before bed). Otherwise, simply replace with another lens. Avoid wearing waterproof makeup, since it can't always be removed from your lenses, even when rinsed with solution. To prevent makeup from getting on your lenses, don't apply mascara all the way from the base of your lashes up. Instead, apply it from the midway point. It's very important not to apply eyeliner on the inner lid of your eye, but rather to the skin above your lashes.
Don't Wear Contact Lenses. If Your Eyes Are Irritated. As the saying goes, “if in doubt - take them out!” If your eyes feel irritated, uncomfortable, or if you notice any pain or redness, don't power through. If your symptoms last a while, contact Jonathon Jimmerson, OD at Center Eye Care. You don't want to let a serious infection go unchecked.
When your eyes feel more rested and are free of discomfort, put in a fresh pair of contacts.
