Your Every Day Contact Lens Hygiene Plan for Multipurpose Solutions

Steps when REMOVING your contact lenses

BEFORE handling your contact lenses wash and rinse your hands thoroughly, then dry with a lint-free towel.

Remove the lens from your right eye, place in the palm of your hand and place 3 drops of multipurpose solution on each side of the lens.
Gently rub (from the centre to the edge) both sides of the lens with the tip of your forefinger for 10 seconds. No separate daily cleaner necessary.

Thoroughly rinse each side of your lens for 5 seconds with fresh multipurpose solution.

Place the lens in the right compartment of the case. Repeat steps 2 to 5 with your left lens.

Fill the contact lens case with fresh multipurpose solution almost to the brim, to ensure the lenses are covered with multipurpose solution.

Securely tighten the caps of the lens case. Soak your lenses for at least 6 hours or overnight for proper disinfection.
