If you wear coloured contact lenses frequently, you may prefer to use contact lens tweezers to handle your lenses. Contact lens tweezers are soft-tipped tweezers that you can use to pick up your lenses. They make it easy to handle your lenses and prevent accidental damage. Some contact lenses can be very delicate and it is easy to scratch or rip a lens. This is especially true if you have long nails – you should never use your nails to pick up a contact lens. Soft-tipped contact lens tweezers are very gentle on the lens and ensure that your lens is not damaged in any way.

Contact lens tweezers also make it easy to maintain good contact lens hygiene. Every time you touch a contact lens, you may introduce bacteria and irritating particles to the lens. Obviously you can reduce this risk by washing your hands thoroughly, but contact lens tweezers reduce it even further. They are easy to keep completely clean and mean less contact between your fingers and the contact lens. Lens tweezers are easy to use, cheap and available from most contact lens shops. There are many benefits to using contact lens tweezers, but the main benefits are as follows:

    • Makes it easier to pick up contact lenses
    • More hygienic than using your fingers
    • Very gentle on contact lenses
    • Easy to keep clean
    • Prevents contact lens rips and damage
    • Reduces germ transfer from your hands to your lenses
    • Ideal for people with long fingernails – reduces damage to lenses
