  3. Start with the same eye every time before you put your lenses in or take them out

  4. Use a lense case that has been clearly marked with ‘R’ for right eye and ‘L’ for left eye to make sure they are not mixed up

  5. Always use appropriate contact lens solution to wash, disinfect, clean and store your lenses. Never use water

  6. Remember to clean and disinfect your contact lenses before you put them away.

  7. Not all contact lenses are recommended for overnight use, please consult our team to find out your personalised wearing schedule
