To remove your contact lenses, first wash your hands with soap and water and then dry them with a lint free towel. Then, making sure that your lens is centered on your eye, gently pull down on the lower eyelid and eye lashes with the middle finger of your removal hand.

Next, secure your upper eyelid and lashes with the middle finger of your other hand and look up. Then, with the index finger of your removal hand, touch the edge of the contact lens and slide it down onto the white part of your eye, making sure not to touch the contact lens with your fingernail.

Next, gently squeeze the lens with your thumb and index finger and remove. Repeat this process for your other eye and then store your contact lenses according to the procedure given to you by your eye care provider.

Contact lenses are a popular solution for people who need vision correction. However, you need an extensive eye examination to determine what type of contacts will work best for you. Once you receive your contacts it is important to follow proper steps to ensure that your contacts are clear, clean, moist and undamaged.

It is important to develop a routine when preparing and inserting your contacts. First, wash your hands with soap and water and dry them on a lint free towel. Next, rinse your contact lens with the proper solution to make sure it is clean and free of dust. Then, making sure that your finger is dry, place the lens on the tip of your finger and check to see if the lens is inside out.

The lens should appear to have a U shape. If it is a U shape with the top edges flared out, the lens is inside out. If you do apply the lens inside out it will be uncomfortable, but will not cause any damage.

Once the lens is on the tip of your finger properly you are ready to insert it.
