YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING

    Contact lenses are very safe if you use them as indicated by your optician. Remember that good hygiene is important, so please wash and dry your hands thoroughly before you apply and remove your lenses.

     

    Yes, your contact lenses should feel comfortable in your eyes. Your optician will measure your eye and recommend the correct type of lens. You can also see what other wearers say about wearing contact lenses. If you experience discomfort, please see your optician.

    Contact lenses and glasses are complimentary forms of vision correction.

     

    There may be times when glasses may be more convenient than contact lenses. You may prefer to wear contact lenses to work, or when you read or watch TV at home. You may want to play ball, water or contact sports without feeling encumbered by glasses. Or you may just prefer to have a glasses-free look for aesthetic reasons, so you always look and feel like yourself.
    If you opt for contact lenses as your primary vision correction, we recommend having a pair of glasses for times that you are not wearing contact lenses.

     

    Daily disposable contact lenses are developed to last from application in the morning until removal in the mid to late evening. We advise wearers to carefully follow the recommendations provided by your optician.

     

    This depends on the type of contact lens that you are using. For example, AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA Contact Lenses are lenses specially designed to be worn continuously up to 30 days. Please ask your optician for more information.
