These lenses contain UV blocker, a benzotriazole UV absorbing monomer to block UV radiation. These lenses are tinted with a combination of approved pigments. The contact lens color combination pigmented area that will mask or enhance the apparent color of the eyes. Each finished lens is supplied in a plastic blister container with a sterile isotonic phosphate buffered saline solution.
The physical/optical properties of the Lens are:

*(cm2/sec) (ml 02/ml x mmHg) 35°C (Polarographic method for determination of oxygen permeability)
WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV absorbing eyewear such as UV absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV absorbing eyewear as directed.
When placed on the cornea in its hydrated state, the lenses act as refracting media to focus light rays on the retina. The UV absorbing monomer in the lenses are used to block UV radiation. The average transmittance characteristics are less than 5 % in the UVB and less than 50 % in the UVA.
NOTE: Long term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-absorbing contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-absorbing contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye-care practitioner for more information.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
The lenses are indicated for daily wear for the correction of refractive ametropia (myopia or hyperopia) in aphakic and not- aphakic persons with non-diseased eyes. The lenses may be worn by person who exhibit astigmatism of 2.00 diopters or less that does not interfere with visual acuity.
The lenses help protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.
The eye care professionals may prescribe the lens for single use daily disposable or daily wear in a Frequent Replacement Program. As prescribed for single use daily disposable wear, patients are instructed to dispose of the lens at each removal. As prescribed for planned replacement, lenses should be cleaned, rinsed, and disinfected each time they are removed. The lens should be disinfected using a multi-purpose (contact lens disinfecting) solution or hydrogen peroxide disinfecting systems.

REMOVING THE LENs
Always remove the same lens first.
- Wash, rinse, and dry your hands
- Always be sure that the lens is in the correct position on your eye before you try to remove it (a simple check of your vision, closing one eye at a time, will tell you if the lens is in the correct position). Look up and slowly pull down your lower lid with the middle finger of your removal hand and place your index finger on the lower edge of the lens. Squeeze the lens lightly between the thumb and index finger and remove Avoid sticking the edges of the lens together.
- Remove the other lens by following the same procedure.
- Follow the required lens care procedures described under the heading LENS CARE
- Note: If this method of removing your lens is difficult for you, your eye care professional will provide you with an alternate method.
LENS REPLACEMENT / WEARING SCHEDULE
The wearing and replacement schedules should be determined by the eye care practitioner. Patients tend to over-wear the lenses initially. The eye care practitioner should emphasize the importance of adhering to the initial maximum wearing schedule. Regular checkups, as determined by the eye care practitioner are also extremely important.
Studies have not been conducted to show that the lenses are safe to wear during sleep, therefore patients should be advised to remove their lenses while sleeping. Normal daily wear of lenses assumes a minimum of 6 hours of non-lens wear per 24-hour period.
The lenses are indicated for daily wear. The below maximum suggested wearing time mainly recommended for people who wear soft contact lenses for the first time.
6 and after
All working hours
LENS CARE DIRECTIONS
I. Soaking and Storing Your Lenses Instruction for Use:
- Use only fresh multi-purpose (contact lens disinfecting) solution each time you soak (store) your lenses.
- Do not reuse or “top off” old solution left in your lens case since solution reuse reduces effective lens disinfection and could lead to severe infection, vision loss or “Topping-Off” is the addition of fresh solution to solution that has been sitting your case.
II. Rub and Rinse Time Instruction for Use:
- Rub and rinse your lenses for 10 seconds or more and then repeat with the second side for a total of 20
- Follow the complete recommended lens rubbing and rinsing times in the labeling to adequately disinfect your lenses and reduce the risk of contact lens

III. Lens Case Care Instruction for Use:
- Empty and clean your contact lens case with digital rubbing using fresh, sterile disinfecting solutions/contact lens cleaner after each Never use water.
- Rinse the case with fresh, sterile disinfecting solutions (never use water).
- Wipe the lens case dry with fresh, clean, lint-free
- If you are air-drying your case, be sure that no residual solution remains in the case before allowing it to air dry. Never recap the lens case lids after use unless additional cleaning methods have been
- Replace your lens case at least once every 3 months. Contact lens cases can be a source of bacterial growth.
- Do not store your lenses or rinse your lens case with water or any non-sterile solution. Only use fresh multi-purpose solution (or sterile saline solution) to rinse your lenses or lens case so you do not contaminate your lenses or lens case. Use of non-sterile solution can lead to severe infection, vision loss or blindness.
IV. Water Activity Instruction for Use:
- Do not expose your contact lenses to water while you are wearing
- Water can harbor microorganisms that can lead to severe infection, vision loss or blindness. If your lenses have been submersed in water such as when swimming in pools, lakes, or oceans, you should discard them and replace them with a new pair. Ask your eye care practitioner (professional) for recommendations about wearing your lenses during any activity involving water.
V. Discard Date (for contact lens care products) Instruction for Use:
- Do not use your multipurpose solution beyond the discard date identified on the bottle. Discard the remaining solution.
- Using your multi-purpose solution beyond the discard date could result in contamination of the solution and can lead to severe infection, vision loss or
CHEMICAL LENS DISINFECTION (Including Hydrogen Peroxide):
- Clean the contact lenses with a recommended cleaning solution and thoroughly rinse them with a recommended rinsing solution.
- After cleaning and rinsing, to disinfect, carefully follow the instructions accompanying the disinfecting solution in the eye care regimen recommended by the lens manufacturer or the eye care practitioner.
- When using hydrogen peroxide lens care systems, use ONLY the lens case provided with the hydrogen peroxide care This case is specially designed to neutralize the solution. Failure to use the specialized case will result in severe stinging, burning, and injury to the eye. Follow the recommendations on the hydrogen peroxide system labeling exclusively. Following disinfection with a peroxide system, the lenses should be rinsed with sterile saline.
- Thoroughly rinse lenses with a fresh solution recommended for rinsing before inserting and wearing, or follow the instructions on the disinfection solution

- Leave the lenses in the unopened storage case until ready to put on the
- CAUTION: Lenses that are chemically disinfected may absorb ingredients from the disinfecting solution which may be irritating to the A thorough rinse in fresh sterile saline solution prior to placement in the eye should reduce the potential for irritation.
CARE FOR A DRIED OUT (DEHYDRATED) LENS
If any lens is exposed to air while off the eye, it may become dry and brittle. In this event, simply dispose of the lens and replace with a fresh one.
CARE FOR A STICKING (NONMOVING) LENS
If the lens sticks (stops moving or cannot be removed), the patient should be instructed to apply 2 to 3 drops of the recommended lubricating or rewetting solution directly to the eye and wait until the lens begins to move freely on the eye before removing it. If non-movement of the lens continues more than 5 minutes, the patient should immediately consult the eye care practitioner.
The patient should be informed that if chemicals of any kind (household products, gardening solutions, laboratory chemicals, etc.) are splashed into the eyes, the patient should: FLUSH THE EYES IMMEDIATELY WITH TAP WATER AND IMMEDIATELY CONTACT THE EYE CARE PRACTITIONER OR VISIT A HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM WITHOUT DELAY.
