Once the contact lens is properly prepared it is time to insert the lens onto your eye.

First, using the middle finger from your non insertion hand, hold the upper eyelid and lashes open to help prevent blinking. Next, with the middle finger of your insertion hand, pull down on your lower eyelid and lashes to open your eye as much as possible. Then, while looking forward, gently place the contact on the front of your eye.

Look left, right and down to center the lens and then gently release your eyelids and blink to further center the contact lens. If the contact is still not centered properly, close your eye and gently massage the lens until the contact is in place.

Repeat this process for your other eye and your contact lenses will be inserted successfully.

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.
