How To Remove Gas Permeable Contact Lenses

Want to learn how to remove gas permeable contact lenses? Gas permeable contacts are a hard rigid lens that sits directly on the eye. While the gas permeable contact is easy to insert, some users have trouble removing a gas permeable contact.  There are actually two methods to removing gas permeable contacts.

To remove gas permeable contacts using method one, you will need:

  • Gas permeable contact cleaner
  • Gas permeable contact case
  • Towel 
  1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water. It is best to use a fragrance free soap as you will be placing your hands around your eye.
  2. Place towel onto counter where you plan to remove contacts. This will better assist you in finding the contact in case you drop it.
  3. While looking straight ahead open your eyes widely. Place your fingertips on the outside corner of your eyelid; this will cause pressure to be applied to the top and lower lid.
  4. Slightly pull your fingers upward toward the ear.  While cupping your other hand under your eye, open your eye widely and blink while still holding your eye in the same position. The lens should fall into the cupped hand. If not, repeat steps 2 and 3.
  5. Place lens into contact case with cleaner. Follow the directions provided to you about caring for your contact lens.

To remove gas permeable contacts using method two, you will need:

  • Gas permeable contact cleaner
  • Gas permeable contact case
  • Towel
  • Gas permeable contact sucker
  1. Repeat steps 1 and 2 from above.
  2. While holding your eye open place the sucker directly on the lens. Apply a gentle twisting movement to remove the lens from the eye.
  3. Removing the lens from the sucker is easy. Simply slide the sucker off the lens. Never pull the sucker off the lens as this can create the lens to warp.
  4. Place lens into contact case with cleaner. Follow the directions provided to you about caring for your contact lens.
