Contact lens wearer's memo

  • Make sure you know how to insert and remove contact lenses.
  • Do not mix up the right and left lens.
  • Always wash and dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
  • Insert your lenses while sitting at a desk.
  • Before inserting the lenses, take a look in the mirror. If your eyes are red or stinging, wear glasses for a day. If the redness and stinging fails to pass in a few days, contact a oculist or optometrist.
  • Remove the lenses if you feel friction or if your eyes are stinging, red, or tired. You should always have the container and lens liquid with you.
  • Do not sleep wearing your lenses.
  • Do not share your lenses with a friend.
  • Put your eye make-up on after inserting the lenses and remove the lenses after removing make-up.
  • Be careful with aerosols (e.g. hair spray) - they precipitate on the surface of lenses and damage the lenses.
  • Do not go swimming wearing your lenses - salty and chlorous water damage lenses.
  • Do not take a shower wearing your contact lenses.
  • Contact lenses must feel comfortable from the first moment they are inserted. Should you feel friction or scratching, remove the lens from your eye, clean it and reinsert it.
  • The working life of contact lenses begins at the moment you open the packaging.
  • Contact lenses may only be cleaned with lens maintenance liquid!
  • Do not reuse lens liquid, i.e. each time you take the lenses out of the container, throw away the liquid and put new liquid into the container when you put back the lenses. Make sure there is enough lens liquid in the container.
  • Do not wash the container with tap water, replace the container in every 3 months instead!

Spectacle wearer's memo

  • Always use both hands to put on or take off your glasses.
  • When not wearing your glasses, keep them in a spectacle case. If possible, choose a hard spectacle case, which withstands lighter pressure. Make sure that the spectacle case fits the size of the frame, i.e. it is not too small, which also deforms the frames, or too large.
  • Use special maintenance equipment available at the oculist's or dishwashing liquid and lukewarm water to clean your spectacles and soft kitchen paper for drying.
  • Keep your spectacles away from heat (e.g. stoves, fireplaces, ovens, and boiling water). Heat damages the surface layers!
  • Do not wear your spectacles in the sauna!
  • Do not leave your spectacles in direct sunlight (on the dashboard in the car, on the windowsill).
  • Do not use aerosols (e.g. hair spray) - they may damage the surface layers of the glasses.
  • Check the screws of the frames of your spectacles every once in a while.
  • Contact the oculist's if you need to have your spectacles bent or the screws tightened.
  • When placing your spectacles on a hard surface, make sure the glasses are facing up.
  • When cleaning your spectacles without using a liquid, use a special cleaning cloth instead of a coarse tissue, as the latter will also cause damage to the surface layer in time.
  • The spectacle case must be cleaned every once in a while, the cloth used for cleaning must be washed, and both should be replaced after a while.
  • It is not recommended to place your spectacles in the case with the chain attached, as this may cause scratching of the glasses. If you do place you spectacles in the case with the chain attached, make sure the chain is not in contact with the glasses.
  • If the fit of the frame changes in the course of wearing, you should have the frame bent at the oculist's.
  • Rimless spectacles are the thinnest by structure and need to be used with a bit more attention. Make sure you use both hands to put on and take off your glasses!

Memo for the wearers progressive glasses

  • Progressive glasses take approximately 3 to 5 weeks to get used to.
  • Getting used to the glasses is different for everyone, it is individual.
  • Immediately after receiving the glasses, you should test, following the instructions provided by a specialist, which distances are comfortable/clear to view through each part of the glasses.
  • It would be good to start wearing the glasses in a familiar environment. It would be more comfortable to start practicing wearing the new glasses in the morning, not in the middle of the day. This makes adjusting to the new and sharper vision easier.
  • Your vision may be wavy at first and the floor may appear to be closer, but this is not necessarily the case.
  • Progressive glasses are ideal for the people reaching the age of presbyopia.
  • It is important to keep in mind that you will have to start moving your head more.
  • Looking through the lower part of the glasses, you must be careful when walking on the stairs, stepping off a buss/streetcar, etc. Simply put - viewing far-away distances through the reading section.
  • Far-away and reading distances are the most comfortable to view.
  • The middle section of the glasses, i.e. the channel section may be too narrow for working for prolonged periods of time. For example, when working at a computer, the whole surface of the screen may not be of uniform sharpness. Interview type glasses are ideal for working at a computer.
  • Separate single-vision reading glasses must be recommended to those reading lying on their back due to the uncomfortable head position.
  • Peripheral areas are contortion areas, through which the vision is not clear.
  • It must be kept in mind that progressive glasses allow you to see to all required distances, but not through each part of the glasses. There is a certain section for each distance.
  • The strength changes from top to bottom in the glasses by small steps, which ensures correct correction for each different distance.
  • It is easier to practice and more comfortable to see when the openings for the glasses is larger and rounder, but they should not be too large in order to prevent areas of the glasses where the transition of the strengths does not reach.
  • Progressive glasses are ideal for those who need to use glasses of different strengths for viewing near and distant objects.
  • The chosen frame must be as comfortable as possible and fit in the correct position from the very beginning.
  • If progressive glasses still do not feel comfortable when you have been wearing them for a while, it may be necessary to readjust the frame.
  • Progressive glasses enable you to see everything using just one pair of glasses.
  • Progressive glasses are worn by millions of people all over the world who are very happy with them.
  • Severe dizziness and headaches are symptoms in the case of which you should immediately contact us again.
  • One of the most frequent problems is that the wearers do not want to get used to moving their heads more when wearing the glasses.
