Steps for the right care of contact lenses.

 

Applying and removing soft contact lenses

Applying and removing contact lenses is a simple process. It’s enough to follow these simple instructions:

  • Always wash your hands with a neutral PH soap and dry them with a fluff less towel, before touching your lenses.
  • Clean, wash off and disinfect your lenses every time you remove them.
  • Always start with the same lens, in order to avoid mixing the two lenses together.
  • Remember to handle both lenses with care.

Inserting the lens into your eye

  • You might want to wash off your lenses with a solution before using them.
  • Put one of the lenses on your writing hand’s index. Make sure that the lens has the right curvature (It should be curving up, not out).
  • Look straight ahead. Pull your lower eyelid down with your middle finger of the same hand.
  • Pull the upper eyelid up with the index of the other hand and look up.
  • Place the lens softly to the lower white part of the eye.
  • Remove your index and let go of your eyelid.
  • Look down and close your eyes for a bit. The lens will find lock by itself.
  • Repeat the procedure for the other lens.
  • Remove the solution from the lens case and let it upside down to dry.

Lens removal

  • Keep your lower eyelid open with the middle finger of the hand that is going to remove the lens.
  • With the other hand, keep the upper eyelid open.
  • Gently press the lens between your index and your thumb and remove it gently.
  • Repeat the procedure for the other lens.
  • If the surface of the lens gets stuck, put a few solution drops on the lens and rub it gently until it becomes unstuck.
  • Every time you remove the lenses, rub them for 10 seconds in order to clean them properly.
  • Place the lens in the right spot in the case and make sure it is totally submerged in the solution.
  • Never sleep with your lenses on!!
