Instructions for Use

Instructions for use


Carefully read the instructions for use enclosed in the package! The maximum daily use of Elena Bellucci contact lenses is 12 hours. Elena Bellucci contact lenses are medical devices. Make sure you have carefully read and understood the instructions for use before use.  

 

Before use


Before contact with the contact lenses, make sure you wash your hands and dry them carefully with a lint-free towel. Basically, you should only touch the contact lenses with your fingertips and avoid contact with fingernails or sharp objects. Before inserting contact lenses, they should always be kept clean, moist and undamaged.

 

 

Inserting contact lenses


Step 1:
The contact lens should be cleaned and rinsed with a multifunction solution for soft contact lenses.

 

Step 2:
For each eye, make sure the contact lens is clean, right-side-up and intact when placing it on the tip of your middle or ring finger, your dominant hand. For right-handers, this is usually the right hand.

 

Step 3:
Pull your lower eyelid with your middle or ring finger using the same hand you used in step 2, and use your free hand to hold your upper eyelid firmly open. Now look at the contact lens or in a mirror while placing the contact lens on your cornea (the large colored circle of your eye). Do not close your eye while doing this.

 

Step 4:
Now release your eyelids. If air bubbles form between your cornea and the contact lens, close your eye and gently circle your eyelid with a finger.

 

Step 5:
Repeat step 1 through step 4 for the other eye.
