You’ll be surprised how easy it is to make contact lenses part of your daily routine. Below you’ll find some useful information and step-by-step support to help make a success of your new lenses.

Practice Makes Perfect

It takes a little time and practice to get used to putting on and taking off contact lenses, just like any new habit.

Putting on and taking off contact lenses can take a little practice.

  • Try giving yourself more time to get ready, until you've mastered the technique.
  • Why not set an alarm to help you stick to your new routine? For example, when to remove or clean your lenses.
  • You can also set a reminder to open a new box or reorder lenses.

Cleaning and caring for your lenses

With daily disposable lenses, you always have a fresh new lens every time. But when it comes to reusable lenses, it is important to establish a cleaning routine. Over time, deposits such as protein in your tears can accumulate on your lenses, which may lead to eye irritation. Clean your lenses daily to help keep your eyes bright, fresh and healthy.

Replacing your contact lenses

Once you have found the right lenses for you, it is important to remember to replace them with a new pair, as often as your optician advised you to. This helps ensure your eyes remain comfortable and healthy.

If you wear reusable contact lenses

Try replacing your lenses on the same day of the week for consistency. For example you can discard your old lenses on a Sunday night and start with a fresh pair on Monday morning.

When you open a new packet of contact lenses

Marking the date on the lens packaging is an easy way to stay on schedule.

Write "Reorder" on your last box of contact lenses

As well as your optician's phone number on the contact lenses pack, for quick, easy replacement.
