Contact Lens Care
Always wash your hands before handling contact lenses.
1 Rub, Rinse & Soak
Carefully and regularly clean your contact lenses as directed by your eye doctor. Always rub your contact lenses with fingers and rinse thoroughly before soaking lenses overnight in sufficient disinfecting solution to completely cover the lens. Use fresh solution each time you soak the lenses overnight; never re-use old solution.
Store lenses in the proper lens storage case and replace the case every three months. Clean the case with the disinfecting solution and let it air dry overnight. Never use soaps or other cleaners to clean the lens case as residues from these chemicals can absorb into the contact lenses and onto your eyes.
3 Makeup precautions
Insert lenses before applying any makeup and remove lenses before removing makeup from the eye area.
4 Swimming, Showering & Bathing
Do not bathe, shower or swim with your contact lenses in your eye. This can introduce your eyes to harmful bacteria and other organisms. If you do swim, with your contact lenses, immediately discard and open a new pair, or consult your eye doctor about switching to daily disposable lenses during the swimming months.
5 Replacement Schedule
Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule prescribed by your eye doctor.
6 Regular Visits
See your eye doctor for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.
