Additional Tip:

  • • After removing your lenses, clean them with contact lens solution for proper hygiene and lens care. These steps are designed for both safety and comfort, ensuring a positive experience with your colored contact lenses. 
  • • Be gentle when removing your lenses to avoid them sticking together. If they do stick, do not pull them apart forcefully. Place the lens in the palm of your hand, apply a few drops of cleaning solution and rub lightly until they separate. To ease the removal process, consider applying a few drops of contact solution beforehand, which can help prevent the lenses from sticking. 

Correct Makeup Procedure for Contact Lens Wearers

  • • Always insert your contact lenses before applying makeup. Similarly, always remove your lenses before you start taking off your makeup. If your lenses come into contact with cosmetics, carefully remove them and cleanse with a lens solution.

Precautions While Wearing Contact lenses

  • • Avoid exposure to chemicals, irritant, steam, smoke and aerosol products like hairspray and cosmetics. Both direct and indirect contact can contaminate the lenses and cause discomfort to your eyes. Certain substance, particularly spicy foods, can be quite irritating if they come into contact with the eyes. Ensure your hands are thoroughly clean before handling your lenses. If you do come into contact with irritants, remove and clean your lenses thoroughly. Seek a professional consultation at an optical agent if discomfort persists.

In Case of Eye Discomfort or infection:

  • • Should you experience symptoms like red or sore eyes, sensitivity to light, increased tearing, abnormal discharge, or blurred vision, discontinue use of your contact lenses immediately and consult a healthcare professional.
