Handling Pre-cautious:
1) Do not use if the sterile blister or the vial package is opened or damaged
2) Always wash your hand before handling your lenses. Wear your lenses before putting on makeup.
3) Do not touch your lenses with nails or hands before they are completely clean because soft lens scratches may happen.
4) Follow the above ( shown in photos diagrams) instructions.
5) Avoid using tweezer.

Lens Wearing and Solutions Pre-cautious:
1) Remove the lenses if your eyes become red or irritated.
2) Use multipurpose solution in stead of saline solution. The latter ones can be used only for rinsing.
3) Do not use the multipurpose solution for more than 3 months after opened.
4) Throw away the solutions if they are already expose to heat. I personally experienced this a month a ago, when I accidentally place an unopened multipurpose solution into my luggage and the boy-friend keep the luggage in the car boot. He returned me the luggage after 3 hours and I found out that the solution was in hear condition. I feel irritated when I wore the 3-month-old Mapple Choco - which had been rinsed and soak with the defected solution. When I removed the lens, my eyes became red. I used a new solution to washed, rinsed and soaked the Maple Choco. Next morning, I was fine with the lenses - comfortable, no more reddish and irritating!
3) Do not wear the lenses more than 6 hours.
4) Do not wear lenses when you go for swim because it may increase the risk of eye infection from germs. 

Lens Care - for longer usage
1) All contact lenses that available in our store are yearly disposal. However, we advised you to only wear them for 3-4 months and throw them away. Protein builds up from contact lenses is a common problem. It can usually been seen in the form of white or cloudy marks on the surface of the lenses, which causes blurred vision and discomfort. To eliminate the protein, you have to use protein removal tablets. Use the tablet once in every 3 months (maximum) I personally wear the lenses for only 3 months for hygiene purpose, unless I use the said tablets.
2) Change the lens case once in every 3 months (maximum)
