COLORED CONTACTS GUIDE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO INSERT CONTACTS
Instructions:

PRIOR TO INSERTION:

  • Obtain any drugstore soft contact lens solution to keep your lenses clean
  • Pour the soft contact lens solution in your contacts case and soak your new contacts in them for 6-8 hours prior to first use
  • Get recommendations from your optometrist to see if they are the right fit for you
  • Check that the lens is clean, wet and damage-free

INSERTING LENSES:

STEP 1: Thoroughly wash and dry your hands with soap and a clean towel.

STEP 2: Remove lenses from case and pour contact solution on the lens, VERY GENTLY rubbing with your finger to remove any trace of debris.

STEP 3: Place the lens on the tip of your index finger. Be sure the lens is correctly oriented by checking the inside-out marker.

STEP 4: Use your other hand to hold your upper eyelid so you won’t blink. Pull down your lower eyelid with the other fingers of your applying hand.

STEP 5: Look to the side and gently place the lens on your eye. Slowly release your eyelid and close your eye for a moment, then slowly release your eye and blink a few times to center the lens.

STEP 6: If your lens feels uncomfortable, remove it and inspect for damage or debris. If it’s damaged, discard it. Otherwise, try rinsing with more solution and turning it inside out in case you inserted it the wrong way.

REMOVING LENSES:

STEP 1: Thoroughly wash and dry your hands with soap and a clean towel.

STEP 2: Pull down your lower eye lid. Bring your index finger close to your eye until you touch the lower edge of the lens, then slide the lens to the lower part of your eye.

STEP 3: Gently squeeze the lens using a pinching motion between your thumb and index finger and remove it.

STEP 4: Remove the other lens following the same procedure.

STEP 5: Put it back into the case filled with new contact solution.

LENS MANAGEMENT & CLEANING

  • Replace the contact solution that the lenses are stored in after each use
  • Even if you are not wearing them, wash both sides of the contact lens with solution every 3-4 days to ensure that it stays clean. Be sure to also replace the contact solution in the case during this time.

WHAT NOT TO DO

  • Do NOT use tap water, bottled water or homemade saline solutions on contact lenses or the lens case
  • Do NOT sleep in your contact lenses
  • Do NOT continue use if you have eye discomfort or pain, continuous excess tear production, eye redness, sensitivity to light, itching, burning, or gritty feelings in an eye, blurred vision
  • Do NOT smoke with these contact lenses on
  • Do NOT share your contacts with others

OTHER INFORMATION

  • Have your eyes and contact lenses regularly checked by your optometrist
  • Store your lenses in a proper storage case and rinse and dry the case after each use. Clean it thoroughly once a week. Replace your storage case regularly, at least every 3 months
  • Ask an optometrist for advice before swimming or bathing while wearing contact lenses
  • Use lens wetting solutions and drops to improve the comfort of your lenses in air conditioned and other dry environments. Lubricating eye drops can relieve dry eyes. Only use eye drops that are approved for use with contact lenses
  • Don’t instill medicated eye drops while wearing contact lenses. Ask an optometrist for advice

MAKEUP AND CONTACTS

  • Insert contacts BEFORE you put on makeup to reduce the chance of pigments getting on the lenses and irritating the eyes
