This article will help you answer that question especially if you are going to use contacts for the first time.   Just simply follow these simple instructions on how to use contact lenses:

  • Make sure your hands are clean and dry. Wash your hands with antibacterial soap and dry them using a clean towel.  Make sure you cut your fingernails short because they could cause irritation on your eyes.
  • When you’re done washing your hands, you may open the case where your lenses are placed. Remove the contact lenses from the case carefully.  Put the lens on your index finger on your right hand and use the middle finger to gently pull the lower eyelid downward. Then gently pull your upper eyelid upward using a finger on the other hand and put the lens on your eye.
  • When the lens is already placed in the eye, release the lids and blink for few times to place the lens in the eye properly.
  • Just apply and repeat the above instructions to put the lens on the other eye.

  • Make sure your hands are clean.  Then simply pull your lower eyelid carefully and use your finger to move the lens onto the white part of your eye, then pinch the lens and lift it off your eye.

Proper hygiene should be observed in wearing contact lenses.   In cleaning your contacts don’t use water and soap, all you have to use is a sterile saline solution.   Make sure you remove your lenses before hitting the sack or before you sleep.   Constant wearing or prolong usage of contacts especially if you are using these for the first time may not be good so try to use them for few hours only.  Never use expired lenses.
