Instructions for use for LIEBEVUE® and Elena Bellucci® brand contact lenses

Instructions for use

Read carefully the instructions for use included in the packaging! The maximum daily use of LIEBEVUE contact lenses is 12 hours. LIEBEVUE® and Elena Bellucci® contact lenses are medical devices. Make sure you have carefully read and understood the instructions for use before use.

Before use

Before contacting the contact lenses, be sure to wash your hands and dry them thoroughly with a lint-free towel.
Basically, you should only touch the contact lenses with your fingertips and avoid contact with fingernails or sharp objects if possible. Before inserting the contact lenses, they should always be kept clean, moist and undamaged.


Insertion of contact lenses

Step 1:

The contact lens should be cleaned and rinsed with a combination solution for soft contact lenses.

Step 2:

For each eye, you should make sure the contact lens is clean, right way around, and intact when placing it on the tip of your middle or ring finger, your dominant hand. For right-handers, this is usually the right hand.

Step 3:

Using the same hand you used in step 2, use your middle or ring finger to pull your lower lid and use your free hand to hold the upper lid firmly open. Now look at the contact lens or in a mirror while placing the contact lens on your cornea (the large colored circle of your eye). Do not close your eyes while doing this.

Step 4:

Now let go of your eyelids. If air bubbles have formed between your cornea and the contact lens during the procedure, close your eye and gently circle them over the eyelid with a finger.

Step 5:

Repeat step 1 through step 4 for the other eye.

Removing contact lenses

Step 1:

Look up.

Step 2:

With your middle finder, pull the lower eyelid further down.

Step 3:

Use the tip of your index finger to move the contact lens to the bottom half of your eye.



Step 4:

Finally, gently grasp with your index finger and thumb and remove the contact lens from your eye.

Danger: The contact lens should not be damaged by pressing it together too tightly or the like.



Step 5:

Repeat step 1 to step 4 for the other eye.​

Disposal of contact lenses

A special method for disposal of contact lenses is not necessary. Contact lenses should be disposed of in a trash can after use.​


Care of contact lenses

For thorough cleaning, place the contact lens in the palm of your hand and add two to three drops of LIEBEVUE® PROAQUA and slowly and carefully rub the contact lens in a circular motion with a fingertip of the other hand.

When cleaning, disinfecting and storing contact lenses, you should always use fresh and clean contact lens care products. This also applies to the intended storage container.

The storage container should be rinsed out with LIEBEVUE® PROAQUA (not tap water) and left open to dry.


Not following the wearing times and cleaning procedures recommended by your eye care professional can put you at an increased risk of serious eye infections. Remove contact lenses before going to sleep and discard lenses after the recommended replacement interval. Do not switch care systems without first consulting a contact lens specialist.


DO NOT wear contact lenses if you suffer from the following conditions:

• Allergy, inflammation, infection, or redness in or around the eye

• Dry eyes (insufficient tear fluid)

• Poor health condition affecting the eyes, such as a cold or flu

• Systemic disease affecting the eyes.


Consult your eye care professional before wearing contact lenses in the following situations:

• Any contact with water, including showering, swimming or engaging in water sports

• Staying in extremely dry or dusty environments

• Use of eye medication

• Some jobs require the wearing of eye protection or prohibit the wearing of contact lenses. If you experience any of the following problems, take your lenses out of your eyes immediately:

• Stinging, burning, itching, irritation, other pain in the eye

• Reduced comfort compared to previous wear

• Unusual discharge or excessive tearing of the eyes

• Redness of the eyes

• Extremely or persistently dry eyes

• Restricted or blurred vision

• Rainbows or halos around light sources

If you experience any problems, remove the contact lenses immediately and consult a contact lens specialist immediately. Even mild discomfort can be an early sign of serious complications. Immediate treatment can significantly counteract possible problems
