ELEMENTS OF OCULAR HYGIENE

Every morning, after having washed your fingers with your usual soap or shampoo, soap softly and thoroughly your eyelids and eyelashes then rinse and dry them well.

During the rest of the day, never touch your eyes at any moment. If your eyes tear, buffer your tears gently with a paper handkerchief. Never rub them.

If you suspect having an eye inflammation, avoid transmitting it to your contacts by avoiding touching your eyes with your fingers and by throwing the soiled handkerchiefs in the bin.

If you have pets, forbid their access to your bedroom. Wash your hands after having caressed them. Clean their usual places, especially the sofas, with a liquid filter aspirator.

In your bedroom, avoid plants.

In your bed, the lining of your pillow, eiderdown and mattress should be synthetic. Avoid wool, natural LATEX, FUTON, cherry pits, buckwheat etc. The covers should be in cotton.

Every day, ventilate your bedroom and let the sunshine in, especially on your bed. Expose your pillow regularly to the direct sun, beat it in a way the dust is vented outside your bedroom then replace it in your bed and cover it to avoid dust.

Every week, wash the pillowcase, eiderdown cover and bed sheet with unscented laundry products. Clean the pillow, eiderdown and the mattress with a liquid filter aspirator.

Every three months, let your pillow be dried in the sun or in the dryer after having left it during some hours in the freezer,

Every year, let your mattress and pillow be thoroughly cleaned by a professional specialised in bed hygiene.

To the latest, the pillow should be changed every 2 years, the eiderdown every 5 years, the mattress every 10 years.
