Contact Lens Care & Storage
Preparing to wear your Colored Contacts
First, you'll need to make sure your hands are clean and free of contaminants. Clean your hands with soap and water. Antimicrobial soap is recommended. Dry you hands thoroughly. NOTE: Aloha Colored Contacts can not be held responsible for your failure to follow the above steps. We can't refund orders due to your negligence. All of our contacts are sterile before opening the blister packaging. It is extremely important that you maintain that sterile environment by taking care to wash your hands.
Important: if you're planning on wearing makeup, it is highly suggested that you apply the makeup after having inserted the contacts. This may prevent any irritation caused by the makeup.
Opening the Package
Use the pad of your index finger to get the lens from its casing. Allow it to curl around your fingertip. Make sure not to let your nail touch the contact as this may result in a tear. Situate the lens on your finger so that it is in the shape of a bowl. See below:
If it is not shaped like the picture on th left, carefully invert the lens. You may need to lubricate the lens a second time.
Inserting Your Lenses
With the contact on your index finger, use one or two fingers from the other hand to lightly pull down on the lower eye lid. Then bring the contact close to your eye, placing it on the lower part of your eye. Make sure that it is properly seated by blinking a few times as this will allow the lens to center on your eye.
Removing Your Contacts
Remember to wash your hands prior to placing your fingers on or near your eye. The easiest way to remove the lenses is to look up at the ceiling and use the middle finger to lightly hold the lower lid down. Then use that same hand's index finger and thumb to lightly pinch the contact lens. This will break the suction of the contact on the eye. Pull away and immediately place the lens into it's case with fresh cleaning and lubricating solution.
Caring for your Lenses. And Common Sense Practices
You must maintain a clean environment for your contacts. Clean hands at all times prior to insertion or removal. Also be sure to use a contact-lens specific cleaning solution. Store in a cool dry place when not in use. Don't use lenses which have touched any kind of surface other than your hand or fingers. Discard any lenses which have been dropped to the floor, sink, or any other unclean surface.
