Removing contact lenses will become quick and easy once you have practiced a few times!
Step 1: Wash & Dry – wash and dry your hands thoroughly.
Step 2: Hold your eyelid – with your fingers firmly lift your upper eyelid up towards your eyebrow and pull your lower eyelid down. Gently place the lens over your iris using your other hand.
Step 3: Gently Pinch – place your first find and thumb over the lens and pitch.
Step 4: Look Up – Look up and slide the lens downwards towards your lower eyelid.
Step 5: Repeat – repeat with the other eye.
If you wear monthly lenses have a clean case and some multipurpose solution to hand to store the lens in.
Start with the same eye every time, as this will stop you from getting mixed up with the lenses.
Discard the lens immediately if it has split or shows sign of damage.
If you get dirt on a contact lens just before it’s about to go in your eye you can rinse it with a multipurpose solution to avoid discomfort.
