Lens Guide

Hello Beauties! Please follow these steps to ensure a long and healthy life for your contact lenses. 

We DO NOT guarantee that colors will look the same as pictured. Everyone has different pigmentation in their eyes and photos are taken in different lighting which can cause lenses to look slightly different.

Step 1: Check the lenses

We try our best to check lenses before sending them out to you, but sometimes defects aren't easily seen. Please contact us right away if you detect any of the following:

  • The container is cracked or broken.
  • The lenses have nicks or tears.
  • The lenses are not the same color.
  • The lenses are expired. 
Step 2: Preparing lenses for use

Before wearing your lenses for the first time make sure to let them soak for at least six (6) hours in multipurpose solution for soft contact lenses. 

Step 3: Cleaning & Hygiene

Keeping your lenses clean is very important and will help minimize the risk of bacterial infections. 

Make sure to always wash your hands with mild soap before handling your lenses.

Step 4: Putting in lenses

Putting in contact lenses can be a little tricky, especially if you’ve never worn them before. But as with everything, practice makes perfect!

  1. Make sure to wash your hands properly with soap and water before touching the lens
  2. Place the first lens on your palm and rinse with several drops of saline solutions; repeat to ensure all traces of disinfecting solution used to soak lenses is fully removed
  3. Place the lens on your index finger

  7. With your other hand pull up your upper eye lid and carefully place the lens on your eye
  8. Blink a few times
  9. Repeat the same procedure on the other eye
  10. If your lens feels uncomfortable, remove it and inspect it for damage or debris. Rinse it with more solution and reapply.

Step 5: Removing lenses

After you’ve had your fun with your contact lenses it’s time to remove them. 

  1. Again, make sure to wash your hands properly with soap and water before touching the lens
  2. Look up and pull down your lower eye lid
  3. Always start with the same eye in order to avoid mixing up your lenses
  4. Bring your index finger to touch the lower edge of the lens
  5. Slide the lens down to the lower white part of your eye
  6. Gently squeeze the lens between your thumb and index finger and remove it

Lens Case Cleanliness and frequent case replacement is essential for minimizing the risk of contamination. Rinse your lens case and covers in hot running water. Replace lens cases at least once every three (3) months.

Prevent dryness by re-wetting lenses as needed with Contacts Eye Drops.

Do not sleep or swim with contact lenses in your eyes.

Do not wear your contacts for more than eight (8) hours per day.

Do not use tap water to rinse or store lenses. Tap water contains chlorine, minerals and metal particles, which can damage both the lenses and the eye. Most importantly, water contains micro-organisms, which can lead to serious infections of the eye.

Do not panic if your lens gets lost behind your eye. It should work itself around to where you can see it. If the lens does not work itself around, try putting some eye drops or a few drops of saline solution into your eye. Next, look up, down and from side to side to attempt to move the lens. You can also close your eyes and gently move your finger over your eyelids around the socket of the eye to reposition the lens. This may help move the lens to where you can see it more easily.

Put in your contact lenses before applying makeup.

Take out your contact lenses before removing makeup.

Remove your lenses immediately if you develop unusual pain, experience stinging, redness, unusual blurred vision, discharge or light sensitivity. If lens is damaged, do not put the lens back on your eye.
