GETTING STARTED WITH

Practice Makes Perfect

Putting lenses on and taking them off
Putting in and taking out contact lenses can take a little practice.

- Why not set an alarm to help you stick to your new routine? For example, when to remove or clean your lenses.
- You can also set a reminder when to open a new box or reorder lenses.
Cleaning and caring for your lenses
With daily disposable lenses, you can throw them away at the end of the day. But when it comes to reusable lenses, it is important to establish a cleaning routine. Over time, deposits such as protein in your tears can accumulate on your lenses, which may lead to eye irritation. Clean your lenses daily to help keep your eyes bright, fresh and healthy.
