Opening Contacts

 

  1. On the steel seal at the top of the bottle you will find an arrow pointing upwards.

  2. Lift the cap at this point until you rip a bit part of the steel seal. Continue to pull it around until completely removed.​

  3. Please be very careful when removing sclera contacts from the vial. Do not use any hard or sharp objects to remove the lenses. A cotton bud is an excellent method of taking a lens out of the bottle if it does not come out easily when the solution is poured.

  • If you accidentally break the cap from the steel seal before it is entirely removed, please use scissors to remove the remaining part. The edges can be very sharp so do not try to use your fingers.

Inserting Any Contact Lenses
  1. Wash your hands thoroughly using non scented soap and ensure that they are completely dry.

  2. Clean the lenses by putting one carefully on your palm, adding a few drops of sterile contact lens cleaning solution (available at any chemist) on them and rub them gently using cotton buds or your finger.

  3. Place the clean lens onto your index finger.

  4. Check if the lenses are inside out. Contacts have a cup like form with upright edges instead bent outwards.

  5. Pull your lower eye lid down using your middle finger. You can pull your upper eye lid using your other hand.

  6. Slowly insert the lens, sliding it gently up under the upper eyelid. Keep looking straight ahead and try not to blink. It can help to lie on your back during this part.

  7. Blink until comfortably adjusted into place.

  8. Repeat the process to the other eye, if required.

  • Take a 5 minute break if you struggle the first time. Ensure that your hands are dry and add a few drops of contact lens fluid to your eyes to aid lubrication. Don’t give up and try again!

  • If you are planning to wear contact lenses for an extended period of time, it is worth carrying a bottle of lens fluid with you. If your eyes become dry or itchy, use a couple of drops in each eye. Contact lenses should not be worn for more than 6 hours and absolutely never sleep with contact lenses in.

 

 

 


Removing Contact Lenses
  1. Clean your hands with non-scented soap and prepare a mirror.

  2. Looking straight ahead, slowly bring your index finger to your eye until it touches the lens.

  3. Slide the lens to the white part of your eye allowing you to squeeze the lens between your thumb and index finger to remove it.

  4. Repeat to your other eye.​

Storing Contact Lenses
  • After use, transfer the lenses to a lenses case and soak the in the multipurpose contact lens cleaning solution (available from any local chemist) for at least 8 hours. Repeat every time you want to store the lenses.

  • Put the contact in before the contact lens solution and only fill the case about half way up. Ensure the contact is fully submerged in contact lens fluid before closing the case. Too much contact lens fluid in the case can cause it to float and get caught between the rim and lid of the case, damaging the edge, causing tears or flaking along one side of the rim (examples here). Please be aware that we will not replace contacts damaged in this way, however we are willing to provide a replacement of the damaged lens at a reduced cost (plus shipping). 

  • Store the contacts at room temperature in a contact lens case.

  • Do not wash your contact lenses or lens case using tap water as this may cause contact with germs. Always use sterile contact lens fluid (available from any local chemist) to clean the lenses and lens case and replace the solution after each use to avoid germs growing.

Safety and Sclera Contact Care

​​​

  • NEVER share your lenses with your friends, family or acquaintances – no matter how clean you believe they are they should never be used by more than 1 person due to cross contamination of germs which while may be harmless to you, could cause eye infections to others.

  • NEVER sleep with contact lenses in. The eyes will dry out and can lead to serious eye infections, corneal ulcers etc.

  • Remove lenses and clean them if you feel any forms of discomfort. There could be dust or tiny particles of grit irritating the surface of the eye.

  • Do not wear contact lenses while swimming, in a steam room or sauna.
