A reminder for wearers of contact lenses

Wearing contact lenses differs from wearing glasses in that contact lenses are worn directly on the eye. We will give you a few tips in order for you to enjoy wearing contacts and to preserve the well-being of your eyes.

  • Before handling contact lenses, always carefully wash and dry your hands.
  • Before putting a contact lens in, make sure that it is in good condition. If there is a defect, it is important to retain the contact lens blisters and contact your nearest Pro Optika store.
  • Clean your contact lenses and rinse them every time (before putting them in and after removing them) with a special contact lens solution.
  • Always keep your contact lenses in a closed container filled with the solution.
  • Always use fresh, clean solution. Do not use different care products at the same time. Only use care products recommended by an eye doctor or optometrist.
  • When taking care of and handling contact lenses, follow the directions given by your eye doctor or optometrist to the letter.
  • Never put contact lenses in your mouth or use saliva, tap water or other liquids that are not meant for the purpose to clean the lenses or the container.
  • Avoid contact with aerosols and sprays.
  • Always apply contacts before using cosmetics and always remove them before removing make-up.
  • Only use eye drops, creams or other medications prescribed by your eye doctor and that can be used together with contact lenses.
  • Remove the contacts and get in touch with your eye doctor or optometrist immediately if the following symptoms occur: pain in the eyes; redness of the eyes; cloudy vision; excessive lacrimation; and/or ultra-sensitivity to light.
  • When swimming with contacts, only use daily contact lenses and swimming goggles. After swimming, remove and throw away the contacts immediately.
  • The main reasons for contact lenses breaking which are not product defects are being damaged by fingernails, getting stuck in the container lid and being put in or removed using the incorrect technique.
