Preparing to wear

Hygiene is an essential part of preparation.

Putting in

Instructions:

Ensure your lenses have soaked prior to first wear. Try to make a habit of putting on the right side first and always make a distinction between right and left.

Place one lens on your index finger and check that it is clean and not inside out (ensure that it has a natural bowl like shape).

Hold your upper lid open with your left hand's index and middle finger, at the same time hold your lower lid open with the middle finger of your right hand.

Looking straight at your eye in the mirror, slowly and gently place the lens on your eye.

Carefully release your eyelids and blink.

You can gently massage your lens to the centre of the eye.

When you are sure that it is correctly inserted, repeat the procedure for the other eye.

Removing

Instructions:

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly.

Look upwards and hold down the lower lid with the middle finger of your right hand.

Placing your index finger and thumb of the same hand on opposite side of the lens, slowly slide it down the white of your eye.

Gently pinch the lens from your eye, taking care not to pinch too hard.

Repeat for the other eye.

Wearing instructions

Lenses are intended for occasional use only.

Check with your eyecare practitioner before wearing for prolonged periods on an everyday basis. Your eyecare practitioner will recommend a suitable wearing schedule. 

It is suggested that you only wear your lenses for 4 hours on the first day, increasing wearing time by 2 hours daily until you reach your optimum wearing time. If you have not worn your lenses for several days, you should follow the wearing schedule recommended to a new wearer.

Always rinse your lenses, before wearing and after removing, with a suitable multipurpose soft contact lens solution.

After each wear, always store your lenses in fresh multipurposse soft contact lens solution, making sure not to damage, or catch your lenses when storing in any lens case used. If you wear your lenses infrequently, always remember to replace the solution used with fresh solution regularly, and ensure that the case used for storage of your lenses is cleaned daily.

These lenses have a maximum number of days used (see outer label of lenses) and are intended to be replaced at this time after opening, irrespectable of the number of times worn.
