Welcome to UltraHealth® Hybrid Contact Lenses!  Soon you'll be able to experience the great vision of these unique lenses.

Take your life back and see in a new way filled with clarity and comfort with your UltraHealth contact lenses. Let's get started! 

Set yourself up for success by utilizing these tips to help you become an expert in the process of applying and removing your lenses, prior to receiving your lenses from your eye care practitioner. Then you'll be ready to enjoy the vision and comfort of your
new lenses right away.

Before You Start

  • You should expect a brief period of adaptation to become fully accustomed to the lenses. Your eye care practitioner will explain what you should expect and how to gradually build up wear time so that you may enjoy unparalleled vision and comfort with UltraHealth.
  • Relax! Applying and removing contacts may feel strange at first, but once you practice a few times, it will be like second nature.
  • Wash your hands with a soap that is free of oils or lotions and dry your hands with a lint-free towel.
  • Check to ensure lens is clean and damage-free.
  • Be sure to handle your contacts in the same order each day to avoid mixing up the right and left lenses.
  • Avoid using oil-based cosmetics, hand soaps, or lotions. Oil-based products can permanently damage the surface of your contact lenses.

UltraHealth Application

Before Applying Your Lenses

There is more than one way to insert your lenses. We recommend you pick the method that works best for you.

Place the lens on the Inserter OR stabilize the lens on three fingers by pinching together your thumb, index and middle fingers to support the lens.

Fill the bowl of the lens with preservative-free saline.
SynergEyes recommends using preservative-free solutions with your UltraHealth lenses.

How to Apply Your UltraHealth Lenses

Lens-Application_UH-photos_nostroke_c

 

Lean forward and look down at the floor. Face should be parallel to the floor. Sometimes it's helpful to place a mirror flat on the counter to look into as you insert the lens.

Pull up on your upper lid by placing one finger on the base of the lashes and pin the lind to the brow bone.

Using the opposite hand, with palm facing up, pull the lower lid down with free finger, holding the eye wide open.

Gently place lens on eye by sliding lens inside lower lid and applying directly to eye. If using inserter, remove inserter from lens by squeezing it.

Top Insertion Tips

Tip 1: To avoid bubbles, fill the lens bowl up completely with saline. Bubbles may make your lenses uncomfortable and produce irregular vision.

Tip 2: Gently place the lens on your eye. As you insert the lens, the cornea will displace the saline and the lens will gently settle on the surface of the eye. If the lens is pushed too hard onto the eye, you may experience discomfort and lens fogging.

UltraHealth Removal

"Tissue Trainer" Method

First, practice removing your lenses with a tissue. The tissue should make removing these moist lenses easy, and can always be used as a "back-up" removal method if needed.

Place the tissue over your forefinger and thumb.

Using a strong narrow pinch, with the fingertips at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions on the lens, and apply slight pressure.

Wait for a "1, 2" count and then roll fingertips together and back toward the palm of the hand.

DRY Finger "Pinch" Method

Once you are comfortable and confident using a tissue to remove your lenses, you can practice removing the lenses without the tissue, using a strong narrow pinch with very dry fingers (in the place of the dry tissue).  Using one hand, pull your upper lid back.

Using your finger on the opposite hand, pull down your lower lid gently.

Place very dry fingertips at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions on the lens and apply slight pressure.

Wait for a "1, 2" count and then roll fingertips together and back toward the palm of the hand.

Fingers need to be dried with a towel between each removal attempt. Rubbing fingers together until heat is felt from the friction will also ensure your fingers are completely dry.

Additional Tips


As a general rule, contact lenses are the wettest when they are first inserted in the eye; therefore, this is when they may be the most challenging to remove. Lenses that have been "on eye" for five minutes or more generally have fewer tears covering the lens surface and are easier to remove.

Some lenses have Tangible® Hydra-PEG coating. This coating is designed to create a more lubricious and wettable lens surface to contribute to increased comfort. The more "slippery" lens surface may also initially make Tangible Hydra-PEG-coated lenses more challenging to remove but with a little practice, you should quickly adjust to your new lenses.

Practice Makes Perfect

Once you receive your lenses in your eye care professional's office, you may want to practice the "removal technique" with the lens on your knuckle, to get familiar with the lens, and where to "pinch" for simple removal. With a little practice, you'll quickly get the hang of the lens removal, and be on your way to experiencing the clarity and comfort of Duette hybrid lenses!

Top Comfort Tips

  • If your lenses are uncomfortable during the day, remove them, re-wet and re-insert.
  • If your eyes feel dry during the day, some eye care professionals recommend a lubricating drop.
  • If your eyes continue to feel dry even after applying lubricating drops, remove your lenses and place them in preservative-free saline solution to re-hydrate for a few hours.
  • Try not to rub your eyes during the day.
