Contact Lens Advice


Important dos and don'ts of contact lens wear

Here are some useful tips on contact lens wear and care to help you get the best out of your contact lenses.


  • Have regular check-ups as advised by your practitioner
  • Always wash and dry your hands prior to handling your lenses
  • Always rub, rinse and store your lenses in the recommended solution before and after each use (except single-use lenses, which should be discarded after each wear)
  • Always clean the lens case with solution, wipe with a clean tissue then air-dry after each use by placing the case and lids face down on a tissue
  • Always apply the same lens first to avoid mixing them up
  • Check the lens is not inside out before applying
  • Check the lens is not damaged before applying
  • Handle carefully to avoid damaging the lens
  • Apply your lenses before putting on make-up
  • Remove lenses then remove make-up
  • Keep your eyes closed when using hairspray or other aerosols
  • Replace your lens case at least monthly
  • Discard lenses and solutions that are past their expiry date
  • Wear only the lenses specified by your contact lens practitioner
  • Stick strictly to the recommended wearing schedule and replacement frequency
  • Make sure you have an adequate supply of replacement lenses or a spare pair
  • Have an up-to-date pair of spectacles for when you need to remove your lenses

Ask yourself these three questions, each time you wear your lenses:

Do my eyes feel good with my lenses? — no discomfort
Do my eyes look good? — no redness
Do I see well? — no unusual blurring with either eye

If the answer to any of these questions is no, leave your lenses off and consult your contact lens practitioner immediately, who will advise you on what to do next.


  • Use tap water, or any other water, on your lenses or lens case
  • Wet your lenses with saliva
  • Put a lens on the eye if it falls on the floor or other surface, without cleaning and storing again
  • Apply a lens if it is dirty, dusty or damaged
  • Continue to wear your lenses if your eyes don’t feel good, look good, or see well
  • Re-use or top up solution – discard and replace with fresh solution each time lenses are stored
  • Decant solution into smaller containers
  • Wear lenses left in the case for more than seven days without cleaning and storing them in fresh solution
  • Sleep in your lenses unless specifically advised to by your practitioner
  • Wear any lens overnight if you are unwell
  • Use your lenses for swimming, hot tubs or water sports, unless wearing goggles
  • Wear your lenses when showering unless you keep your eyes firmly closed
  • Switch the solution you use except on the advice of your practitioner
  • Use any eye drops without advice from your contact lens practitioner
  • Share contact lenses or wear any lenses not specified by your practitioner

Remember that if you have any questions about your contact lenses you should consult your eyecare practitioner for advice.

Need help choosing a suitable colour of contact lenses? 

Typically customers with blue eyes won't have a problem with any of the lenses in terms of the intensity of the eye colour change. The lighter your natural eye colour the most accurate the colour will turn out according to the product picture displayed.

If you have dark brown eyes the change in eye colour will be more subtle. We would recommend you chose lenses from the Mesmereyez Intense range which will be stated in the product title and description. 

Here is a selection of lenses that we would reccommed specifically for dark eyes for the most intense colour change. Please bare in mind that although these lenses will give the best colour change they may not show up as an exact match to the image due to personal reactions to eye colours.
