Putting contacts lenses on for the first time can be scary. We have simplified to some easy steps that you can follow: 

  1. Find the right side of the lens. See diagram.

  2. Gently hold the upper eyelid with one finger and carefully pull down the lower eyelid with a finger from the other hand. 
  3. Steadily move the contact lenses toward your eye. Slowly release the eyelid. 

Be sure to give yourself space and time to get used to putting your new contact lenses on. Find a place that is comfortable, clean, and well-lit. Using a mirror would be great!


MORE DETAILED EXPLANATION: 


Washing and drying hands 


Debris and oils from your hands could irritate your eyes or damage the lens. It is important to always wash and dry your hands before you start. Wash your hands with non-perfumed antibacterial soap and dry them with a lint-free towel.


Remove one contact at a time from the case


Starting with your right eye’s lens, scoop it out of the case with a dry, clean finger. Rest the contact lens on your index finger. After you had finish the right eye’s lens then move on to the left. This is especially important for those who have different prescription lenses for different eyes. 


Check the lenses is the right side before putting them on


If the lens is shaped like a bowl, with the edges nice and straight, it is in the correct position. If the edges flare out, please flip the lens around.

Gently pull the skin away from your eye


Using your free hand, pull your upper eyelid upward with your index finger. Use the middle finger of the hand with the contact lens in it to pull your lower eyelid down.


Slowly release your eyelids and blink

Once your contact lens is on your eye, slowly release first your upper and then lower eyelids. Slowly close your eye and allow the contact lens to settle in. Looking left to right as well as blinking a few times. 


Enjoy your contact lenses!
