Wear and Care Guide
Wearing lenses, most people find it easy. However, taking care of your lenses may require some knowledge and some self-discipline. Hence this guide is not only meant for new users, but for existing users as well. This is because when handling lenses incorrectly it would cause permanent damage to the lenses and maybe to your eyes. So this guide is your new reference and could help you to minimize that unnecessary damage.
First Step: Check the lens in the bottle
Some defects are undetectable by human eye. We have tried our best to cross check all the lenses before ship out. Nevertheless please spend at least a minute to check their conditions in the bottle:
- See if the bottle crack or broken.
- See if the lens have nicks or tears.
- See if both lenses share the same color.
- See if the bottle is expired.
If yes to any of the above, we apologize that you may need to contact Pinkyparadise to exchange the products. If everything is good, go to the SECOND STEP.
Reminder: Expiry Date
There is always confusion on the expiry date of lens and bottle.
1. The expiry date on the label of bottle referred to the solution expiry date, not the lens.
2. Lens expiry date is calculated ONE year after you open the bottle.
3. If bottle is expired and lens are found inside the bottle, in this case the lens is considered as expired.
Reminder: Bottle Labels
Sometimes the label is torn off, reason being is manufacturers may have missed some of the labels during production
Sometimes label is different from the website. This is because some same products may have different marketing brand, but in fact they are all the same. PP could assure you that the quality and pattern design are exactly the same.
Second Step: Open the vial bottle
This question seems to bother lot of people, hence we are giving some tips to on how to open up the vial bottle. Few easy steps as follow,
- Open up the plastic cap (There is small indicator at the lens cover).
- Pull plastic cap off together with the steal seal.
- Push off the remaining steal seal.
- Remove the bottle cork.
- A scissor may help if you find the plastic cap or steal seal is too difficult to pull off
Go to THIRD STEP to make sure you have followed the proper procedure.
Third Step: Checking before usage
Have you got your lens case READY?
READY means you have used multipurpose solution to disinfect the lens case at least twice before use.
Have you soaked the lenses at least 8 hours in multipurpose solution before put them on your eyes?
We understand that the lenses are cute and you could not wait to put them on your eyes to try out the effect. However, you are best advised to put your lens into multipurpose solution for at least 8 hours before wearing them. Don’t risk your eyes simply because of impatience. Your eyes and safety matters most.
Forth Step: Hand Cleaning and Hygiene Factor
You need to be extra cautious on the cleanliness of your lenses. As we know, the lens will be inserted to eye area. Therefore a good hygiene would help to minimize the risk of bacterial infection. Few tips as follow:
- Always wash your hand with mild soap, if possible, scentless soap whenever contact with lenses.
- Make sure your hand is dry and free from soap when contact with lenses.
- It is best to put on the lens before make up to avoid unnecessary oily stains or chemical products sticking on your hand.
