DESCRIPTION:
Blink Contacts® Lubricating Eye Drops is a sterile, buffered, isotonic, preserved solution.
This aqueous formulation includes purified water, sodium hyaluronate, sodium chloride,
potassium chloride, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, boric acid and is preserved with
OcuPure® preservative (stabilized oxychloro complex 0.005%). This preparation contains
no chlorhexidine, no thimerosal and no other mercury containing ingredients.

ACTIONS:
Blink Contacts® Lubricating Eye Drops has been formulated for use with both soft and
rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses; to rewet lenses before insertion and lubricate
lenses during wear and to moisturize and refresh tired, dry eyes. It also relieves minor
irritation, discomfort, dryness, blurring and itchiness, which may occur while wearing your
lenses.

INDICATIONS:
Use Blink Contacts® Lubricating Eye Drops to lubricate and rewet soft (hydrophilic) and
rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses, to help relieve dryness, discomfort and irritation
that may be associated with lens wear and to cushion lenses by placing a drop on the lens
prior to application on the eye.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
If you are allergic to any ingredient in Blink Contacts® Lubricating Eye Drops, do not use
this product.

WARNINGS:
PROBLEMS WITH CONTACT LENSES AND LENS CARE PRODUCTS COULD RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY TO THE EYE. It is essential that you follow your eye care practitioner’s
directions and all labeling instructions for proper use and care of your lenses and lens care
products, including the lens case. EYE PROBLEMS, INCLUDING CORNEAL ULCERS, CAN
DEVELOP RAPIDLY AND LEAD TO LOSS OF VISION.

Daily wear lenses are not indicated for overnight wear and should not be worn while
sleeping. Clinical studies have shown that the risk of serious adverse reactions is
increased when these lenses are worn overnight.

Extended wear lenses should be regularly removed for cleaning and disinfecting or for
disposal and replacement on the schedule prescribed by your eye care practitioner.

Clinical studies have shown that there is an increased incidence of serious adverse
reactions in extended wear contact lens users as compared to daily wear contact lens
users. Studies have also shown that the risk of serious adverse reactions increases the
longer extended wear lenses are worn before removal for cleaning and disinfecting or for
disposal and replacement.

Studies have also shown that smokers had a higher incidence of adverse reactions.

It is recommended that contact lens wearers see their eye care practitioner once a year or
if directed, more frequently.

To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip of the bottle to any surface and DO
NOT transfer contents to any other bottle or container. Replace cap after using.

PRECAUTIONS:
Keep bottle tightly closed when not in use. For in-eye use only. Do not use in the lens
case. Store at room temperature. Use before the expiration date marked on the bottle and
carton. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if neckband on bottle is broken or
missing.

The following may occur:
• Eyes stinging, burning or itching
• Excessive watering (tearing) of the eyes
• Unusual eye secretions
• Redness of the eyes
• Reduced sharpness of vision (visual acuity)
• Blurred vision
• Sensitivity to light (photophobia)
• Dry eyes
If you notice any of the above, IMMEDIATELY remove and examine your lenses.
If a lens appears to be damaged, do not reapply; consult your eye care practitioner. If the
problem stops and the lenses appear to be undamaged, follow the “Directions” below,
before reapplying the lens.

If the problem continues IMMEDIATELY remove your lenses, discontinue use of all lens care
products that contact the eye, and consult your eye care practitioner.
