    It’s really easy to get PRECISION1® lenses in and out – see for yourself:




    Keep in mind this video does not replace the need for undergoing insertion and removal consultation with your Eye Care Professional – it’s here to provide some extra support.


    There have been massive strides in contact lens technology in recent years. The risk of contact lens-related eye damage is low as long as you follow your eye care professional’s advice and recommendations. Maybe don’t put them in right after you cook a batch of spicy pepper chili, either. Just trust us on that one.


    Nope, that’s physically impossible. A terrifying thought for sure, but totally impossible. Now if you rub your eye, the contact lens might move around. Try some rewetting drops to get it back in place.


    PRECISION1® contact lenses are disposable and designed for daily use. Just use a fresh pair each day and take them out before you go to sleep. Simple as that.


    You sure can wear contact lenses with sensitive eyes. It’s important that your contact lenses feel as comfortable as possible, especially if your eyes are as sensitive as your emotions after your favourite show is canceled. Make sure you let your Eye Care Professional know about your sensitivities so they can tell you which contact lens is right for you.


    Although it’s tempting, we recommend that you do not swim in your contact lenses. Instead, ask your Eye Care Professional about protective eye wear options.


    Yes, you can wear makeup with contact lenses. We recommend putting your contact lenses in before you do your makeup. Otherwise, you might ruin a perfectly good cat eye. Oh, and maybe go easy on the mascara so you don’t get any on your contact lens.


    Make an appointment with your Eye Care Professional and ask about PRECISION1® contact lenses. You will need a prescription from an Eye Care Professional in order to get contact lenses. Don’t have an Eye Care Professional? Find one here.


    No – contact lens prescriptions are different from eyeglass prescriptions. If you have glasses but are interested in trying contacts, schedule an appointment with your Eye Care Professional.
