Visit Eye Doctor

Visit your eye doctor immediately if you have any sudden vision loss, persistent blurred vision, light flashes, eye pain, infection, swelling, unusual redness, or irritation.

Cleaning with sterile solution

Clean your contact lens case after each use with either sterile solution or hot tap water and let air dry.
