How To Take Out Contact Lenses Properly
If you have recently attained contact lenses, then you will need to know how to take out contact lenses properly. It can be hard or easy depending on the person, but if you just keep doing it eventually you will be able to take your contact lenses properly without a thought.
What you will need to take out contact lenses properly:
- Clean towel
- Contacts case
- Contact lense solution
- The first step you want to take is to get your contact case ready. Open both sides of it and fill each cup up with about three quarters of solution. This will make sure that you contacts are properly and fully submerged in the solution. Be sure not to accidently over fill the case because solution can be expensive!
- The next thing you will need to do to take your contact lenses out properly is wash your hands thoroughly. This is where the soap and sink come into play in the contact removal process. Be sure to dry your hands very well after you have scrubbed them to reduce the chance of any contacts slipping off of your finger tips. Also be sure to mainly focus on the finger tips of your index fingers and thumbs on both hands. This will ensure the upmost cleanliness of your most important fingers for properly taking out your contacts.
- Now that your case is set and your hands are washed it’s time to properly take out those contacts. Start with either eye you feel most comfortable with, but be sure you remember it so you can put it in the correct side of the case. Each side should have either an L or an R on it for left eye and right eye, so use this for placing whichever contact you take out. If you are right handed, pull the top of your eye up with your left hand. Then, using the ring and middle finger of your right hand, pull the bottom of your eye with your middle and ring finger. Using the index and thumb of your right hand, grab on the very edge of the left and right side of your contact lense and squish it together.
- Now, place the removed contact in the correct side of the case. Repeat step three with the other eye and once again, make sure to get the proper contact lense into the proper side of the container. Now seal up the container and give yourself a pat on the back!
