6 Easy Steps to Ensure Eye Health

When Wearing Contact Lenses...

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly before handling your contact lenses.
  2. Perform all contact lens care steps (clean, rinse, disinfect!) every time you remove your lenses from your eyes, on a schedule recommended by your eyecare professional.
  3. Use only fresh contact lens care solutions that are recommended by your eyecare professional — and never tap water!
  4. Replace your lenses with a fresh new pair on a schedule recommended by your eyecare professional.
  5. Remove your lenses if you experience redness, irritation or itchiness — and visit your eyecare professional to resolve the problem.
  6. See your eyecare professional yearly for a comprehensive eye health and vision exam.
