|As a new contact lens wearer, you have 2 main obstacles to get past – putting your lenses in and taking them out. |
Sure, you practiced in the doctors office, but once you get in front of the mirror by yourself it’s a whole different ball game!
I’ll never forget my first pair of contacts and the freedom they brought me. I picked them up at the doctors and he helped me put them in. I walked out of there like a new woman! Later that night, however, trying to get them out was a nightmare! I just wasn’t used to sticking my fingers in my eye and it took me more than ˝ hour to finally get them out. By the time I was done, my eyes were all red and I swore I’d never wear contacts again! But of course I did and it soon got easier to take them out.
Like anything else, after a few days or weeks of practice, you will be quite comfortable with your contacts, but in the mean time, here’s some tips that might help you out.
Putting In Contact Lenses
Wash your hands thoroughly before handling your lenses. Make sure your hands are dry. Put the lens on your index finger and put a small drop of solution in the lens so that it sits in the bowl of the lens – not too much so that it spills out and the lens flops over. Pull down your lower lid with your thumb and look up with your eye. Bring the lens to the lower white part of your eye – it should slip right on your eye. Release your lower lid, blink and your lens should be in place. I find that sometimes the lens will want to stay on your finger instead of going on your eye. If this happens make sure your finger is very dry and try not to spill the solution out of the “bowl” of the lens as you bring it to the eye.
Taking Out Contact Lenses
Again, make sure you wash your hands before taking out your lenses. Dry them off good as the drier your fingers are the better the lenses seem to “stick” to them. Look up and use your index finger to slide the lens down to the outer corner of your eye, a the same time, bring your thumb up to meet the index finger and “pinch” the lens. It should come right out between your fingers. Use a gently pressure – don’t poke at your eye. If the lens doesn’t seem to want to move, put some eye drops in your eye to wet it a bit and hopefully this will help you slide it down
