LENS CARE DIRECTIONS

RINSE FOR LENS-WEARING COMFORT

When you insert your lenses:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water and dry with a lint-free towel prior to handling your lenses.
  • Prior to reapplying lenses, RINSE each side of the lens for 5 seconds with fresh COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution to remove any debris on the lens.
RUB, RINSE AND SOAK FOR EFFECTIVE DISINFECTION

When you remove your lenses:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water and dry with a lint-free towel prior to handling your lenses.
  • Place 3 drops or more of COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution on one side of the lens surface.
  • RUB your lens gently from the center to the edges for at least 10 seconds (never rub in a circular motion, because it may tear the lens and not clean the outer edge surface).
  • After rubbing for at least 10 seconds, turn the lens over and repeat step 3.
  • RINSE each side of the lens for 5 seconds with fresh COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution. Place lenses in clean COMPLETE® lens case and fill with COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution. Close COMPLETE® lens case tightly.
  • SOAK – Allow lenses to soak for a minimum of six (6) hours for disinfection, cleaning and protein removal.
EXTRA CLEANING AND COMFORT

Based on your unique tear chemistry and lens replacement schedule, your doctor may recommend additional care procedures. This may be particularly important if lenses are kept longer than 90 days. Always rinse your lens case with COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution and allow to dry.

LENS STORAGE

You may leave your lenses in the unopened COMPLETE® lens case containing COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution for up to 30 days. Your lenses must be cleaned and disinfected with fresh solution every 30 days and prior to lens wear.

PROTEIN REMOVAL FROM YOUR CONTACT LENSES

COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution removes protein while your lenses are soaking in the COMPLETE® lens case. Daily use of COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution eliminates the need for a separate enzymatic cleaner for many lens wearers—consult your eye care professional.

WARNINGS

PROBLEMS WITH CONTACT LENSES AND LENS CARE PRODUCTS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY TO THE EYE. It is essential that you follow your eye care professional’s directions and all labeling instructions for proper use and care of your lenses and lens care products, including the lens case. You should follow the recommended lens rubbing and rinsing times to adequately disinfect lenses. Reduced rubbing or rinsing times may not adequately clean your lenses. EYE PROBLEMS, INCLUDING CORNEAL ULCERS, CAN DEVELOP RAPIDLY AND LEAD TO LOSS OF VISION.

You should fill your lens case with fresh solution every time you store your lenses and never “top off” or reuse solution. You should discard your solution immediately after your lenses have been removed from the lens case. You should not expose or store your lenses in or rinse your lens case with any water such as tap, bottled, distilled or with any non-sterile solution. Clean, rinse and dry your lens case each time you remove your lenses. In order to permit excess solution to drain, flip your lens case over and allow it to air dry. Replace your lens case every 1-3 months depending on your hygiene habits.

Daily wear lenses are not indicated for overnight wear and should not be worn while sleeping. Clinical studies have shown that the risk of serious adverse reactions is increased when these lenses are worn overnight.

Extended wear lenses should be regularly removed for cleaning and disinfection or for disposal and replacement on the schedule provided by your eye care professional.

Clinical studies have shown that there is an increased incidence of serious adverse reactions in extended wear contact lens users as compared to daily wear contact lens users. Studies have also shown that the risk for serious adverse reactions increases the longer extended wear lenses are worn before removal for cleaning and disinfection or for disposal and replacement.

Studies have also shown that smokers had a higher incidence of adverse reactions. It is recommended that contact lens wearers see their eye care professional once a year or, if directed, more frequently.

To avoid contamination, do not touch the tip of the COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution bottle to any surface. Replace cap after using.

PRECAUTIONS
  • Avoid exposure to water when wearing and caring for your contact lenses.
  • Discard any remaining solution in your lens case before re-disinfecting. Always use fresh solution.
  • Rinse lens case and caps with fresh solution after each use; dry upside down on a clean towel. Do not use non-sterile water to rinse lens case.
  • Always wash your hands and then dry with a clean, lint-free towel before handling lenses.
  • Use the included lens case with COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution.
  • Replace your lens case every 1–3 months.
  • Keep bottle tightly closed when not in use.
  • Store at room temperature.
  • Use before the expiration date marked on the bottle and carton. DISCARD SOLUTION 90 DAYS AFTER OPENING.
  • Never use COMPLETE® Multi-Purpose Solution with a heat disinfection unit.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.
ADVERSE REACTIONS (Problems and what to do)

The following problems may occur: eyes sting, burn or itch (irritation); comfort is less than when lens was first placed on the eye; feeling of something in the eye (foreign body, scratched area); excessive watering (tearing) of the eye; unusual eye secretions; redness of the eye; reduced sharpness of vision (poor visual acuity); blurred vision; rainbows or halos around objects; sensitivity to light (photophobia); or dry eyes. If you notice any of the above:

IMMEDIATELY REMOVE YOUR CONTACT LENSES
  • If the discomfort or problem stops, then look closely at the lens.
  • If the lens is in any way damaged, DO NOT put the lens back on your eye. Place the lens in the COMPLETE® lens case and contact your eye care professional.
  • If the lens has dirt, an eyelash, or other foreign body on it, or the problem stops and the lens appears undamaged, thoroughly clean, rinse and disinfect the lens and then reinsert it.
  • If the problem continues, IMMEDIATELY remove the lens and consult your eye care professional.
  • If any of the above symptoms occur, a serious condition such as infection, corneal ulcer, neovascularization or iritis may be present. Seek immediate professional identification of the problem and prompt treatment to avoid serious eye damage.
GOOD LENS CARE PRACTICES
  • Follow your eye care professional's instructions.
  • Always wash your hands before handling your lenses.
  • Rub, rinse and disinfect your lenses each time you remove them.
  • Always handle the same lens, the right or the left, first in order to avoid mix-ups.
  • Do not expose lenses or lens case to tap water, bottled water, distilled water, lake water, or ocean water.
  • Do not swim, shower or use a hot tub while wearing soft contact lenses.
  • Do not use saliva or put lenses in mouth to rewet.
