Coloured contacts for first timers
How to care for coloured contacts
Clean it as you would any soft contact lenses. When you get your prescription from your eye care practitioner, you will be instructed on which lens cleaning products to use and how to use them.
How to handle the lenses
Wash your hands and dry them before handling the lenses. Water contains contaminants that are invisible to the naked eye.
Clean your lenses according to instruction and place one lens into each compartment of the lens case. Don't mix them. Each lens is immersed in the solution recommended by your practitioner. Use a lens case that distinguishes the left from the right eye.
Be gentle with your lenses and take extra care if you have long nails. They can tear quite easily.
