Now that you have your new contact lenses, you need to learn how to keep them clean and germ-free so that they can give you great comfort and vision for a long time. Clear Care is a terrific product for this. For those using other cleaning products, visit how to use Refine One-Step.
One of the most important steps to follow for healthy contact lens wear is to wash and dry your hands before touching your contact lenses.
Once your hands are washed and dry, you’re ready to start cleaning your contact lenses with CLEAR CARE® Solution. It all starts with the unique CLEAR CARE® Solution lens case.
Each new purchase of CLEAR CARE® Solution comes with a special lens case that must be used in order for CLEAR CARE® Solution to work properly.
With the special lens case, you’ll actually be able to see CLEAR CARE® Solution working—killing germs and removing protein, bacteria, dirt and buildup.
Once you’re ready, remove and place each soft contact lens into the specially designed lens holders on the unique CLEAR CARE® Solution lens case.
Do not put CLEAR CARE® Solution on your contact lenses and insert them directly into the eye or burning and stinging or redness will result.
For Soft Contact Lenses:
For Gas Permeable Contact Lenses:
Remove your contact lenses one at a time and place them into the appropriately marked dome basket holder.
Always allow your contact lenses to soak for at least six hours or overnight in CLEAR CARE® Solution. This time is required to ensure complete neutralization of the hydrogen peroxide.
Also, make sure to put away your CLEAR CARE® Solution so that it is not accidentally mistaken as a multipurpose solution by a guest or a family member.
