Insertion and Removal of Soft Contact Lenses
 

How To Insert Lenses
1. Wash and rinse hands thoroughly and dry with a lint-free towel before handling contact lenses.
2. Use a soap that is free of oils, lotions, or perfumes.
3. Use fingertips to handle lenses (avoid long fingernails and sharp objects)
4. Place lens on tip of pointer or middle finger , check to make sure that lens is clean,
right side out and damage - free (if the lenses are inverted, the edges will appear almost
straight up and will flare out slightly.)
5. Pull down lower eyelid with middle or ring finger of the same hand. Then use your other hand to hold the upper eyelid firmly open.
6. Look directly at contact lens or into mirror and place lens directly on the center of your eye.
7. After positioning the lens, slowly let go of upper eyelid, blink and the contact lens should be on the center of your eye.
