Your Every Day Contact Lens Hygiene Plan for One Step Peroxide Solution

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 and place into the right basket (marked: R) of the open lens holder. Carefully close the basket. Remove the lens from your left eye, place into the left basket and close it carefully.
Thoroughly rinse each lens while in the lens holder for 5 seconds with fresh one step peroxide solution.

Fill the lens case up to the marked line with fresh one step peroxide solution. Do not underfill or overfill the lens case.

Place the lens holder inside the lens case and close the cap securely (do not overtighten). The solution will start to bubble. Ensure the lens case is in an upright position and that your lenses are fully immersed.

Allow your lenses to soak for at least 6 hours or overnight prior to applying onto the eyes. Do not shake the lens case or turn it upside down during the disinfection process.
