Here are some tips…

  • Always wash and dry your hands before handling your lenses. Do not use if the packaging is damaged or not sealed.

  • Always follow your eye-care professionals instructions for duration of use, follow up visits and emergency procedures.

DISINFECTION/SOAKING

  • Clean and disinfect your lenses strictly following the instructions on your solution bottle or as directed by your eye-care practitioner. This should limit the presence of potentially harmful bacteria and fungi.

  • Direct exposure to non-sterile water (e.g. tap water, whirlpool bath, swimming, participating in water sports) increases the risk of microbial infection. Soaking contact lenses and contact lens cases in non-sterile water increases the risk of serious microbial infection.

  • If lenses have not been worn for an extended time or dry out, follow the Disinfection / Soaking step above, replace with new lenses or consult your eye-care practitioner.

  • We recommend that you replace your lenses frequently and care for them daily. Your eye-care practitioner will recommend a wearing regime, but if in doubt do ask them for advice.

  • Our lenses are designed for daily wear to be replaced monthly.

  • If your eyes become red or irritated or you experience any pain, remove your lenses immediately and consult your eye-care practitioner.

  • We DO NOT recommend the use of Peroxide based cleaners for use on Gelflex Sofclear Colors and Gelflex Sofclear Enhance as it may affect the colour of the lens.

  • Avoid long nails which harbour bacteria. A scratched eye is vulnerable to infection.

  • Replace damaged or scratched lenses immediately.

  • Insert lenses before applying make-up. Remove lenses before removing make-up. Use fibre and oil free mascaras. Avoid contact between your lenses and hair lacquer or other cosmetic aerosols.

  • Keep your lenses out of reach of children.

  • Remove your lenses in the presence of noxious or irritating fumes.

  • Only use your lenses for water sports if water-tight goggles are worn.

 

WARNINGS

  • Don’t wear your lenses when using eye medications or eye drops, unless advised to do so.

  • Don’t rinse your lenses or lens case with tap water. This can be extremely harmful to your eyes.

  • DON’T sleep in your lenses

  • DON’T use household products (e.g. disinfectants) on your lenses. They can seriously damage your eyes.

  • DON’T change your contact lens care system without consulting an eye-care professional.

  • DON'T expose your lenses to water while you are wearing them (e.g. showering)
