Wear & Care

When you get your lenses there are a few things you should check before you start using your new lenses. First, check that the packaging is intact and that there is liquid in the lens bottles. Also check the date stamp on the lens packages. Date Stamp refers to the fluid the lenses are kept in. After you have opened the lenses they have a life span of about a year. (Note! only if used less frequently, otherwise we recommend replacing them after about 3-6  month)

Circle Lenses Wear & Care Guide

1. How to open your lensvials (bottles)

Some of our lenses are packaged in glass containers (vials), which is a sealed glass container for sterile storage of lenses. We recommend that you use a knife or the tip of a scissor to open the lid on the vial so that you protect your nails and fingers. After removing your lenses from the vial you should store them in lenssolution for 8 hours before you use the lenses for the first time. Please Check the video or the pictures below for instructions.

Cleaning the lenses is important! To ensure that your eyes will not suffer complications, please make sure to follow your Optician care instructions and read our Wear & Care guidelines. With the use of contact lens solution you can easily clean your lenses from dust, germs and makeup residues each time after use.

Always wash your hands thoroughly before handling the lenses. Shake the lens package before you open it, the lens should move freely in the lens solution. Make sure the lens is right side up. A reversed lens moves more on the eye and can chafe or give poorer visual acuity. To control the lens, squeeze it between your thumb and forefinger. If the lens is facing the right way the lens edges is turning towards each other. If the lens is facing the wrong way the edges of the lens is turning toward the fingertips.

These occasions include: certain allergies, infection or irritation in or around the eyes or eyelids, in diseases such as severe colds and flu, waterfront sports where you do not use swimming goggles, as well as in extremely dry or dusty environments.

Problems that may occur

Be aware of the following problems that can occur when using lenses: burning sensation in the eyes, a chafing sensation, redness, a comfortless feeling of the lens, dryness of the eyes, worse visual acuity, photosensitivity, increased tear flow from the eyes and colored rings or light scattering around light sources.

Some lens designs can affect the vision on the outside of the sight which can become a little blurred. It is uncommon but can occur in some situations. Some lens designs that have powerful colors all the way toward the center of the lens may in some rare cases affect the vision temporarily. But after a little while, the vision will improve when the eye adapts and gets used to the new lens. Contact us at support@circlelenseseurope.com for help if it doesn´t get any better.

Do not assume that you get the exact same color as those seen on the pictures. Our colored lenses produce different results depending on the eye's original natural color and we therefore can not guarantee what effect you might get.

If any of the problem stated above would not go away after you have explored all possible causes or replacing the lens, you should promptly contact an optometrist or ophthalmologist to correct the problem or just to ensure that it does not involve a cornea ulcer or a bacterial infection.

CirclelensesEurope.com recommend that you visit your optician for an eye examination before you buy circle lenses.
