Learning how to put contact lenses in can give your life much-needed fulfillment when you no longer have to rely on bulky, distasteful glasses. Putting in contact lenses can be easy to do with a little patience, time, and practice. If you’re ready to learn, than take a look at this quick list of items you’ll need to put contact lenses in.
To put contact lenses in, you’ll need the following items:
- Contact lenses in case
- Contact solution
- Water/soap source (sink)
- Paper towels
- Patience and practice
- Prepare your surroundings. The first step to putting contact lenses in is putting yourself in the best position to put your contact lenses in correctly. To do this, first start by washing your hands thoroughly, removing any soapy residue from your hands before proceeding. Next, find a place with both a sink and a mirror to put your contact lenses in. Place a paper towel in the bottom of the sink to avoid accidentally dropping any contact lenses down the drain. Finally, grab your contact case with solution and proceed to the next step.
- Place your contact lenses in. After you’ve gotten yourself ready, begin by placing your right contact lenses in your left hand. Make sure it’s facing the correct direction that it will need to be in to go into your eye. Next, use your right index finger to scoop the lenses out of your cupped right hand. Try and position your contact lenses on the tip of your right index finger. Next, use your left hand to create a “C” shape with your left index finger and thumb above and below your eye. Use your left finger and thumb to spread your eyelids apart. Finally, using the contact lenses in your right index finger, place your contact lenses in your right eye.
- Place your second lenses in. To place your left contact lenses in, follow the same exact steps as in step two. The only difference is that you’ll be placing it in your left eye this time, not your right. If you’re left-handed, you may consider placing the contact lenses on your left index finger and spreading your eye open using your right hand. If you happened to drop your contact lenses, remain calm, locate it, and place it back in your contact lenses case with fresh contact solution. After letting it sit for a few minutes, repeat the process of placing your lenses back in your eye.
After you get the hang of putting your contact lenses in, it’ll be as normal as brushing your teeth. In fact, you’ll put more thought into how you do it than the actual process of doing it. Make sure you remain patient during the process too, it can be difficult at first. But with practice you’ll be a master at putting your contact lenses in.
