Putting in your contact lenses can be tricky. Follow these steps to help make the process a little easier.
Things You’ll Need
contact lens case
contact lens solution
soap and water
Wash your hands thoroughly. It’s best to allow them to air dry because drying off with a towel could deposit tiny fibers on your hands that will cause problems.
Open the right eye lens case and use your index finger to scoop the lens out.
Place the lens on your index finger. Rinse the lens carefully with solution. If it folds down, just push it back up with your other index finger. Make sure the lens is right side out. The edges of the lens should curve inward not out.
Lift the lens to your eye and use your middle finger to pull down your lower lid.
Place the contact lens on your eye and release your lower lid. Blink your eye to adjust the lens.
Repeat this process with the left eye. Once finished, clean out the contact case and refill with fresh solution.
Tips & Warnings
- Try to keep your eye open until you have placed the lens on the eye.
- This should be done in a clean environment and always make sure you have washed your hands thoroughly to avoid infection.
