Inserting, removing and caring for your lenses
INSERTING YOUR LENSES
- Wash and dry your hands. Choose a soap that doesn’t contain oils, lotions, or perfumes. Don’t apply makeup before inserting lenses - ideally have a clean, cleansed face.
- Make sure your lenses have been soaked in a lens solution for at least 6 hours (not applicable for 1 day lenses).
- Place the lens on the tip of your index finger. Make sure the edge of the lens is perfectly upright and the lens isn’t inside out.
- Hold your eye open with your free hand, then place the lens with your index finger onto your eye.
- Blink slowly and look in different directions to stabilise the lens.
REMOVING AND STORING YOUR LENSES
- Wash and dry your hands.
- Hold your eye open with one hand. Gently pinch off your lens with your other hand.
