  • Do keep your fingernails trimmed and clean always.
  • Do check to see whether the lens is "inside out" before insertion
  • Do always wear the contact lenses in the same eye first. Example, put in the right contact lens, then the left; remove the right contact lens first, then the left. This is to avoid confusion and mix up of lenses.
