WARNINGS

PROBLEMS WITH CONTACT LENSES AND LENS CARE PRODUCTS COULD RESULT IN CORNEAL INFECTION AND/OR ULCER AND LEAD TO LOSS OF VISION. It is essential that you follow your eye care professional's directions and all labeling instructions for proper use of lenses and lens care products, including the lens case.

You should follow the complete recommended lens rubbing and rinsing times in the product labeling to adequately disinfect your lenses and reduce the risk of contact lens contamination. Reduced rubbing or rinsing times may not adequately clean your lenses.

You should fill your lens case with fresh solution every time you store your lenses and never “top off” or reuse the 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 or distilled, or with any non-sterile solution.

Clean, rinse and air-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 prescribed 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 of 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 at least once a year or, if directed, more frequently.

To avoid contamination, do not touch the tip of the Blink RevitaLens® Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution (MPDS) bottle to any surface. Replace cap after using.

PRECAUTIONS
  • Avoid exposure to water when wearing and caring for your contact lenses.

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 lenses.

  • If the discomfort or problem stops, then look closely at the lens.
  • If the lens is in any way damaged, DO NOTput the lens back on your eye. Place the lens in the AMO lens case and contact your eye care professional.
  • If the lens has dirt, an eyelash or other foreign body, 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.
