It is proven to recondition and retain moisture on the lens surface so your eyes feel fresh and moist throughout the lens wear day. Why look further? Inserting your Contact Lenses Before handling contact lenses always wash and dry your hands. Don’t forget to close the sink drain. Pour the lens and storage solution from the case into your palm. And it is a good idea to work with the same lens first to avoid mixing up your lenses. Now place the lens on the tip of the index or middle finger of your dominate hand and inspect the lens and lens hedges. If any debris is on the lens, rinse it with the Multi-Purpose Solution. If the hedge is turned up like a ball, the lens shape is correct. However, if the hedges of your lens are turned out, the lens is inside out. To correct this, apply a few drops of Multi-Purpose Solution on the lens and reverse it. Using your finger pull and hold your upper lid firmly open so you cannot blink. Pull down your lower eyelid using the finger of your inserting hand. Then place the lens gently on the eye. Now look down to position the lens correctly and slowly release you eyelid and close your eye for a moment. Blink several times to center the lens on your eye. Now insert the other lens following the same procedures. Finally rinse your lens case after each use with the Multi-Purpose Solution and let the case air dry until you are ready to remove and store your lenses. Remember to always use fresh Multi-Purpose Solution in the lens case. Never reused the solution or topped off solution in the lens case. Removing your Contact Lenses Before removing your contact lenses, wash and dry your hands and close the sink drain. Looking up, pull down your lower eyelid and use your finger to carefully slide your lens down to the lower right part of your eye. Gently squeeze the lens between your thumb and finger and remove it from your eye. Occasionally, your contact lens may fall during handling. To correct this, apply a few drops of the Multi-Purpose Solution to the folded lens in your palm and then gently rob the lens back and forward in the solution with your finger until its slide open again. Never try to pull the lens apart. And now, let’s talk about cleaning and disinfecting your contact lenses. Wash your way dirt and debris on the lens by thoroughly rinsing each side of the lens for 5 seconds with OPTI-FREE® RepleniSH® Solution. Fill your lenses case with enough fresh solution to cover each lens and allow the lens to soap for a minimum of 6 hours.
