FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to wait 6 hours before wearing my contact lenses?
Yes, if lenses are worn prior to the completion of the 6-hour neutralizing period, you may experience burning or redness of the eye.
Can I use any lens case for storing my contact lenses?
No, only use the lens case containing the platinum disc neutralizer when using AquaClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Solution to ensure proper cleaning and disinfection.
Can I re-use the solution left in the case or top it off with new solution?
No, failure to discard solution from the case after each use may lead to inadequate disinfection potentially resulting in eye injury and loss of vision.
Can I rinse my contact lenses with AquaClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Solution and then immediately wear them?
No, never rinse your contact lenses with AquaClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Solution and immediately wear them. This may cause burning and redness of the eye. Let your lenses soak for at least 6 hours in the special lens case provided so that the solution can properly complete neutralization.
How often should I replace my lens case?
Dispose of your hydrogen peroxide lens case after 31 uses or 1 month of daily use.
Can I wear my contact lenses if they’ve been soaking for more than 24 hours?
If your contact lenses have been stored in AquaClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Solution for more than 24 hours, repeat the disinfection and 6-hour neutralization process again following the directions for use.
What if my eyes burn after I put my contact lenses in?
Remove your contact lenses immediately and flush your eyes with a large amount of water or sterile saline. If burning or irritation continues, seek immediate assistance from an eye care professional.
LUMIFY contains a unique formulation* and is FDA approved. With no bleach or dyes, LUMIFY starts working in 60 seconds and lasts up to 8 hours. It was developed by eye doctors, and it’s brought to you by Bausch + Lomb, the eye care experts.
*Low-dose OTC brimonidine selectively targets redness.
Why does May Vision Center recommend Lumify?
May Vision Center recommends Lumify over other OTC redness reducers due to its safety and its ability to selectively target redness. Unlike drops containing Tetrahydrozine, it does not have the potential to cause a rebound effect or worsening of redness symptoms.
MacuHealth with LMZ3
Specially formulated to promote a healthy macular pigment and support your eyesight throughout your life.
A Healthy Diet is essential to maintain a healthy macula. Macular pigment consists of three (3) dietary nutrients: Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Nature gives us the ability to selectively accumulate these three nutrients at the very center of the retina. In other words, where vision is sharpest and where color is processed. Unfortunately, today’s processed foods lack the nutrients required to maximize macular pigment. Because of this, supplementation is now believed to be the best way to protect your macula.
Replenishing Macular Pigment helps protect the macula (central retina) from disease, in addition to optimizing visual performance.
Restores Macular Pigment
Exposure to high energy blue light increases oxidative stress on the retina, which over time can lead to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). MacuHealth helpts nature restore macular pigment to optimum levels, and may protect against AMD because of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nature of the three nutrients.
Improves Visual Performance
Visible blue light has a negative effect on the quality of the optical image formed at the retina. In fact, shorter blue light wavelengths scatter more than other wavelengths, thereby resulting in Glare, Chromatic Aberration, and Light Scatter. Consequently, these conditions contribute to loss of visual acuity. Macular pigment selectively filters out damaging and image-degrading visible blue light.
Why does May Vision Center recommend MacuHealth with LMZ3?
It is the only dietary supplement containing all three (3) critical nutrients: Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin, and Zeaxanthin in the same 10:10:2 ratio that makes up macular pigment. Taken once a day, this small, easy-to-swallow soft gel is clinically proven to restore macular pigments to normal levels, resulting in enhanced vision and aid in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration.

Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to help reduce the risk of heart disease and also to promote healthy skin. They are also used along with diet and exercise to help lower levels of a certain blood fat (triglyceride) and to raise levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL). This product may also be used to help treat high blood pressure of rheumatoid arthritis.
Why does May Vision Center recommend Nuretin?
May Vision Center recommends Nuretin to patients with diabetes as it has shown to promote health retinal tissue in the back of the eye and maintain healthy retinal blood vessels to reduce the risk and slow the onset of diabetic retinopathy.
PRESERVATIVE-FREE LUBRICANT EYE DROPS
Lubricant eye drops are artificial tears that replace the moisture that is lost on your eyes surface. The viscousness of artificial tears such as Oasis TEARS® PLUS and Oasis TEARS® lubricate the eyes to relieve the gritty dry sensations that cause irritation. Doctors often recommend preservative-free artificial tears such as these. Oasis TEARS® can be used as needed to relieve dry eye symptoms.
Why does May Vision Center recommend Oasis Tears?
May Vision Center recommends Oasis Tears to patients because it is a professional grade artificial tear that lasts longer on the eye. Also, it does not have the potential to damage the outer layer of the cornea because it does not contain preservatives.
How Does Pataday Work?
Pataday works two ways. It goes to work on mast cells in the eye. (Mast cells house the histamines that make your eyes itch.) Pataday stabilizes the mast cells, preventing them from releasing histamines. Pataday also blocks histamines that have already been released from attaching to the histamine (H1) receptors in the eye, breaking the chain of allergic reaction. Less histamines means less allergy eye itch.
Why does May Vision Center recommend Pataday?
May Vision Center recommends Pataday due to its safety, limited side effects (mild burning upon instillation), and prescription grade strength.
Why it works
PRN’s Dry Eye Omega Benefits products contain 2240mg of EPA/DHA in the re-esterified form (rTG). Studies show that this formulation:
- Significantly improves occasional dry eye discomforts such as grittiness, dryness, and burning*
- Improves tear film quality, contributing to overall eye comfort and stable vision*
- Ensures tears are healthy as part of creating a healthy surface for surgery
- Provides critical nutrition to produce healthy, soothing tears
- Can produce optimal levels of omega-3s in 90 days
*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
How it works
Omega-3 deficient glands become inflamed and clogged which accelerates tear evaporation and dryness due to missing oil.
After an initial 90 days of proper Omega-3 nutrition, followed by long term use, healthy tear film is restored along with normalized oil glands.
Why does May Vision Center recommend PRN?
May Vision Center recommends PRN because it is more easily absorbed by the body, it doesn’t have an aftertaste, and is more effective (only need four tablets to reach a beneficial amount) than OTC brands.
