Caring for and cleaning
your contact lenses
Cleaning your contact lenses is a must when you're wearing monthly or 2 weekly contacts and it only takes a few minutes to clean them with the recommended solution.
Important things to remember
Wash Your Hands
Ensure your hands are washed, clean and dry to avoid irritation.
Begin With The Same Eye
Establish a habit of starting with the same eye. This way you won't mix your right and left eye.
Clean Contacts After Removal
For 2-weekly and monthly lenses, always clean your contact lenses immediately after you remove them. Daily disposable lenses, throw them away after removal.
Never Use Tap Water To Clean A Lens Or Lens Case
Refer to your contact lens solution instruction guide for further information about how long to soak your contact lenses or how often you should change the solution if you don't wear them every day.
Cleaning your 2-week or monthly contacts
Fill each side
of your contact lens case with fresh contact lens solution.
Place one lens
in the clean, dry palm of your hand, and apply a few drops of your contact lens solution. With one finger, gently rub the lens back and forth on your palm to clean the lens surfaces.
Rinse your lens
thoroughly with more of your solution, and put it into your clean contact lens case.
Clean your contact lens case
with fresh contact lens solution after every use. Allow to air-dry, upside down on a clean tissue. Always replace your contact lens case every 1-3 months.
Never rinse your contact lenses or lens case with tap water.
