Thank you for your purchase from EyeCandy's! Please study this Instructional Manual in order to get the most out of your new lenses!
Prior to Wear
- Wash your hands with soap and dry them before and after handling lenses.
- Before opening the vials, inspect the lenses for any tears, nicks or other defects (remove the authenticity stickers on the bottom of the vials if you have GEO lenses). If you notice a defect, inform us immediately and we can send you a replacement item. Otherwise, please note that we cannot replace items that have been opened.
- Handle lenses with only your fingertips. Never use your nails, which you should always keep trimmed and tidy. This is a habit you should develop whenever wearing any kind of contact lenses.
- Avoid having your nails come into contact with the lenses as much as possible. This is very important because it can tear the lens. Remember that the lens material is extremely delicate!
- Look at the bowl of the lens and check that the edge is not curved outwards. If it is, it means that it's inside out.
Wearing Your Lenses
- Soak your lenses in multipurpose solution for at least 6 hours prior to usage for the first time. Remember to always clean, rinse and disinfect them with solution after usage every time to prevent discomfort and have good hygiene.
- Use only proper lens solution or saline solution designed for soft contact lenses. Never use tap water.
- Using one hand, gently lift your upper lip. With the other hand, gently pull down your lower lid with your middle finger and place the lens on your eye with your forefinger.
- Release your fingers from your lid. Close your eyes and blink 2 or 3 times. Massage your eye in a gentle circular motion to centre the lens on your eye. Repeat with the other eye.
- If your vision appears blurry there may be oils or debris on the lens or they may be on the wrong eye. Please check.
- To remove the lens, gently pull down your lower lid. Look to the left and slide the lens down to the white of your eye using your forefinger. Pinch the lens gentle with your forefinger and thumb.
Cleaning & Storage
- Place the lens in the middle of your palm. Put 6 to 8 drops of fresh multipurpose solution. Rub the lens with your fingertip in a circular motion, 20 to 30 times, taking care not to scratch the lens with your nails (you might damage the surface). Rinse with fresh solution again.
- Replace the old solution in your lens case with fresh solution. Repeat the above instructions with the other lens.
- Ensure that both your lenses are completely immersed in solution in the case, otherwise they will become dehydrated and unusable.
- It is good hygiene to replace your lens case every 3 months to avoid bacterial growth and possible contamination.
- You should not wear your circle lenses for more than 6 hours at a time.
- Cosmetic lenses are not meant as a direct replacement for conventional prescription contact lenses. Remember, circle lens are cosmetic accessories.
- This is kind of obvious, but do remove your lenses at the first sign of any discomfort or illness.
- Keep track of the expiry date of your lenses! The wearing duration stated on the product info page begins from the day that you open the seal. If you do not open the seal, the lenses can be stored in the packaging for 2 to 3 years (check the labels).
- Check the expiry date of your lens solution.
- Do not wear lenses while swimming or showering.
- Never fall asleep wearing your lenses.
- Most people put on lenses with clean hands before applying makeup. You can do it after too, but make sure your hands are 100% clean.
- Carry some eye drops wherever you go so you never have to suffer from dry eyes.
