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. EYE PROBLEMS, INCLUDING CORNEAL ULCERS, CAN DEVELOP RAPIDLY AND LEAD TO LOSS OF VISION. 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 disinfecting 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 disinfecting 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 dropper tip of the bottle to any surface and DO NOT transfer contents to any other bottle or container. Replace cap after using.

  • Sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Dry eyes

If you notice any of the above, IMMEDIATELY remove and examine your lenses. If a lens appears to be damaged, do not reapply; consult your eye care professional.

If the problem continues IMMEDIATELY remove your lenses, discontinue use of all lens care products that contact the eye, and consult your eye care professional. If any of the above occurs, a serious condition such as infection, corneal ulcer, neovascularization, or iritis may be present. Seek immediate professional identification of the problem and obtain treatment if necessary, to avoid serious eye damage.
