Tips For Contact Lens Wearers


Visit a reputable eyecare professional for a complete eye examination every 12 months or more frequently if directed by your eyecare professional.

Use only contact lenses if they are FDA-approved and only if prescribed by a licensed eyecare practitioner. Ask your practitioner whether the FDA has cleared the product.

NEVER swap contact lens with another person.

Don't wear lenses longer than prescribed, nor when sleeping unless otherwise directed.

If eyes become red or irritated, remove the lenses immediately and consult your doctor. Don't try to brave the irritation.

Replace contacts as recommended by your eyecare professional because they wear out over time. Throw away disposable lenses after recommended wearing period.

** For a 1 year lens, always use protein remover to make sure your lens are in good condition, wash it properly before storing them.. take a good care of your lens, if so, your lens will remain safe for thr whole lens duration..
