Important UV Information

Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.

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. 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-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.

Indications & Safety Information
Cleans, rinses, disinfects, removes protein, stores and conditions soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses, including silicone hydrogel lenses

WARNINGS
PROBLEMS WITH CONTACT LENS CARE PRODUCTS COULD RESULT IN CORNEAL INFECTION AND/OR ULCER AND LEAD TO LOSS OF VISION. It is essential that you follow your eye care professional's directions and all labeling instructions for proper use of lenses and lens care products, including the lens case. You should follow the complete recommended lens rubbing and rinsing times in the product labeling to adequately disinfect your lenses and reduce the risk of contact lens contamination. Reduced rubbing or rinsing times may not adequately clean your lenses. You should fill your lens case with fresh solution every time you store your lenses and never “top off” or reuse the solution. You should discard your solution immediately after your lenses have been removed from the lens case. You should not expose or store your lenses in or rinse your lens case with any water, such as tap, bottled or distilled, or with any non-sterile solution. Clean, rinse and air-dry your lens case each time you remove your lenses. In order to permit excess solution to drain, flip your lens case over and allow it to air dry. Replace your lens case every 1-3 months, depending on your hygiene habits. Extended-wear lenses should be regularly removed for cleaning and disinfection or for disposal and replacement on the schedule prescribed by your eye care professional. To avoid contamination, do not touch the tip of the ACUVUE™ RevitaLens Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution (MPDS) bottle to any surface. Replace cap after using. Use the solution before the expiration date marked on the outer carton and bottle. Once the bottle is opened, discard any remaining solution after 90 days.

PRECAUTIONS

  • Avoid exposure to water when wearing and caring for your contact lenses.
  • Discard any remaining solution in your lens case before re-disinfecting. Always use fresh solution.
  • Rinse lens case and caps with fresh solution after each use; dry upside down on a clean towel. Do not use non-sterile water to rinse lens case.
  • Always wash your hands and then dry with a clean, lint-free towel before handling lenses.
  • Keep bottle tightly closed when not in use.
  • Use the included lens case with ACUVUE™ RevitaLens Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution (MPDS).
  • Replace your lens case every 1–3 months.
  • Store at room temperature.
  • Use before the expiration date marked on the bottle and carton.
  • Never use ACUVUE™ RevitaLens Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution (MPDS) with a heat disinfection unit.

ADVERSE REACTIONS (PROBLEMS AND WHAT TO DO)
The following problems may occur: eyes sting, burn or itch (irritation); comfort is less than when lens was first placed on the eye; feeling of something in the eye (foreign body, scratched area); excessive watering (tearing) of the eye; unusual eye secretions; redness of the eye; reduced sharpness of vision (poor visual acuity); blurred vision; rainbows or halos around objects; sensitivity to light (photophobia); or dry eyes. If you notice any of the above, immediately remove your lenses.

  • If the discomfort or problem stops, then look closely at the lens.
  • If the lens is in any way damaged, DO NOT put the lens back on your eye. Place the lens in the lens case and contact your eye care professional.
  • If the lens has dirt, an eyelash or other foreign body, or the problem stops and the lens appears undamaged, thoroughly clean, rinse and disinfect the lens and then reinsert it.
  • If the problem continues, IMMEDIATELY remove the lens and consult your eye care professional.

If any of the above symptoms occur, a serious condition such as infection, corneal ulcer, neovascularization or iritis may be present. Seek immediate professional identification of the problem and prompt treatment to avoid serious eye damage.
