Every pair of contact lenses you purchase comes with it's own screw top contact lens case with mini tweezers and tool for inserting the lenses with ease. The case and tools have a simple design that makes it easy to pick up your contact lenses. The case keeps the lenses separate and screws tightly shut, so it will not leak.
To store your contact lenses correctly you will need to use contact lens solution and one clean contact lens case for each pair of lenses. Never store more than one pair of lenses in one case. We recommend changing your case every 90 days. After placing your lenses in the case, fill it with fresh contact lens solution and change the solution each time you wear them to help to prevent build up of dirt or deposits on the contact lens. Always put the lenses back in the correct side of the case to avoid contamination between eyes.
The most crucial part of lens care is keeping your coloured contact lenses clean. Wearing dirty contact lenses can cause eye irritation and infection, however by following some basic hygiene principles you can keep your lenses clean and be sure to protect your eyes. Almost all the risks associated with contact lenses are caused by failure to keep the lenses clean and by making lens hygiene a priority you can eliminate these risks.
You should use contact lens solution to clean your lenses. Lens solution is specially formulated for use with cosmetic contact lenses - never use water or anything other solution on your lenses. Please note that water can actually damage contact lenses.
Please refer to the instructions below for the best method for cleaning contact lenses. You should use this method each time you remove a pair of contact lenses. You can also do this if you drop a contact lens or anytime you think that a lens looks gritty or dirty.
- Place the lens in the palm of your hand
- Pour contact lens solution on the lens
- Use your finger to rub the lens with the solution, be very careful not to damage the lens. Please use your fingertip, and avoid using your nail
- Place the lens in its designated section of the contact lens case. Fill the case with fresh contact lens solution
- Close the case very tightly to avoid leaking
- Keep the lens case in a cool place, away from very cold or very warm conditions. Do not leave them out in the sun.

Check the contact lens life span. Each lens has a life span, which is listed on the packaging.

Once this period has expired, you must throw the lenses away.
