DO NOT use if the sterile blister package is opened or damaged.
Before leaving the eye care practitioner’s office, you should be able to easily remove lenses or you should have someone else available who can remove the lenses for you.
You should remove your lenses immediately if your eyes become red or irritated.
If your lens sticks (stops moving) on your eye, follow the recommended directions in “Care for a Sticking Lens”. Your lens should move freely on your eye for the continued health of your eye. If non-movement of your lens continues, you should immediately consult your eye care practitioner.
Always wash and rinse your hands before handling lenses. Do not get cosmetics, lotions, soaps, creams, deodorants or sprays in your eyes or on your lenses. It is best to put on your lenses before putting on makeup. Water-base cosmetics are less likely to damage lenses than oil-base products.
Do not touch your contact lenses with your fingers or hands if they are not free of foreign materials, as microscopic scratches of the lenses may occur, which causes distorted vision and/or injury to your eye.
Carefully follow the handling, insertion, removal and wearing instructions in this booklet and those prescribed by your eye care practitioner.
Never wear your lenses beyond the period recommended by your eye care practitioner.
If aerosol products, such as hair spray, are used while wearing lenses, exercise caution and keep your eyes closed until the spray has settled.
Always handle lenses carefully and avoid dropping them.
Avoid all harmful or irritating vapours and fumes while wearing lenses.
Ask your eye care practitioner about wearing lenses during sporting activities.
Inform your doctor (health care practitioner) about being a contact lens wearer.
Never use tweezers or other tools to remove your lenses from the lens container unless specifically indicated for that use. Slide the lens up the side of the bowl.
Do not touch the lens with your fingernails.
Always discard lenses as prescribed by your eye care practitioner.
Always contact your eye care practitioner before using any medicine in your eyes.
Always inform your employer of being a contact lens wearer. Some jobs may require use of eye protection equipment or may require that you not wear contact lenses.
Certain medications, such as antihistamines, decongestants, diuretics, muscle relaxants, tranquilizers and those for motion sickness, may cause dryness of the eye, increased lens awareness or blurred vision. Should such conditions exist, proper remedial measures should be prescribed. Depending on the severity, this could include the use of lubricating drops that are indicated for use with soft contact lenses or the temporary discontinuance of contact lens wear while such medication is being used.
Oral contraceptive users could develop visual changes or changes in lens tolerance when using contact lenses.
As with any contact lens, follow-up visits are necessary to ensure the continuing health of your eyes.
