how to put on contact lenses

Contact lenses are a great option for those who play sports and don't want to wear goggles or anyone who doesn't like the hassle of constantly having something on their face. However, learning how to put on contact lenses can be a struggle. Your first time wearing contacts can be nerve wracking and scary, but the benefits of wearing contacts are great, and once you get the hang of it, it's an easy process.

If you're having trouble getting contacts in your eye, follow our simple step-by-step guide below and you'll be enjoying perfect vision with the help of contact lenses in no time!

PREPARATION

Wash and air-dry your hands to ensure they are clean. Go somewhere that is well lit and has a large mirror for you to see what you are doing. If you are above a sink, you may want to plug the drain to eliminate the chance of losing your lens if you drop it. 

STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

Step 1: Carefully remove the lens from the packaging and place it on the tip of whatever index finger you are more comfortable with. Put some solution on the lens to help with the adherence to your eyes, and then inspect the lens to make sure there are no tears or rips. At this time, also make sure it is right-side up. If it is inside out, gently maneuver it into the correct position.

Step 2: To get into a routine and make this process as easy as possible, start with your right eye. With the opposite hand that has your contact on it, keep your eye open by taking your eyelid and gently pushing it up with your index finger. Simultaneously, use your middle finger of the hand that has the contact and pull your lower eyelid downwards. 
Step 3: Carefully move the lens on your index finger towards your eye, making sure that the lens is in the right place by looking at the mirror. Place the contact evenly on your cornea, and the lens should gently suction itself to your eye. To adjust to the contact, blink slowly. 

Step 4: Repeat the process for your left eye.
