How To Put In Colored Contact lenses
Putting in your contact lenses can be scary for beginners, and you may experience slight difficulty at first. However, the process is straightforward once you get used to it. It is important you follow the proper guidelines when handling your contact lenses. Ignoring the safety precautions can lead to eye infections and other issues. So make sure you already have a lens case and contact lens solution before you pop open your box of contact lenses.
Follow the following steps to safely insert PRIMAL contact lenses.
1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds before handling your contact lenses. After washing, dry your hands with a clean, lint-free towel or let them air dry. Avoid using towels that may leave lint or debris on your hands, as this can transfer to your contact lenses.
2. Take out your contact lenses and place them in your hand, then use the cleaning solution to rinse and gently rub your contacts. This will make them sterile and comfortably sit in your eye.
3. Place the lens on the tip of the index finger of your dominant hand. Make sure the lens is positioned correctly by checking that it forms a "U" shape and that the edges are pointing upward. (the shape can sometimes be deceiving, so be sure to inspect it properly.)
4. Use your other hand to hold open your eye. Hold your upper eyelid open with your index finger and use the middle finger to pull down your lower eyelid (make sure you hold down the lashes as well). 5. Look up at the ceiling, exposing the sclera, and gently place your contact lens inside your eye. Make sure the contacts are cupping your eyeball between the lower eyelid, and avoid blinking as you put your contacts in.
6. Slowly release your eyelids and look down. Blink a few times and look into the lens to align your eyes to the center.
7. Once you check the lens is inserted properly, repeat the process for the other eye.
Remember to always handle your colored contact lenses with clean hands and keep them properly stored in their case with lens solution. If you experience any discomfort or difficulty with inserting your contact lenses, consult your eye doctor.
How To Take Out Colored Contact Lenses
Removing contact lenses can be just as scary as putting them in for many beginners. However, as you learn to familiarize yourself with the steps of inserting your contacts, you will learn how to take them out just as easily. Please follow these steps on how to safely remove your contact lenses.
1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and dry them clean with a lint-free towel, or let them air dry. Avoid using towels that leave lint or small debris on your hand, which can transfer onto your contacts and cause irritation. For monthly or even yearly contacts, it is even more important that you regularly disinfect the lenses and the case.
2. Open your eyes and separate the eyelids with your non-dominant hand. Hold your upper eyelid with your index finger and your lower eyelid with your middle finger.
3. Carefully pinch the lens gently between your thumb and index finger and remove it from your eye. You should feel the lens squeeze in your eye as you pinch it. This means the lens is in your grasp and ready to be taken out. This step can be a bit difficult, but it is completely natural to feel a bit unusual while removing contacts.
4. Place the lens in the palm of your hand and add a few drops of contact lens solution, then use your index finger to clean the lens in a circular motion to remove any build-up.
5. Once you've removed both contacts, place the lenses in their separate containers and fill them with fresh contact lens solution.
