How do I handle and use contact lenses?

There are some basic instructions for handling contact lenses correctly,
but it’s important to follow these guidelines and any additional guidance provided by an eye specialist:

  • Trim your nails, ensuring they are rounded and smooth.
  • Wash your hands and fingers thoroughly with soap and dry them with a clean towel.
  • Use your index finger to remove the contact lenses from the lens case.
  • Hold your eye open with your other hand’s thumb and index finger where the contact lens will be placed.
  • Look straight ahead and gently and slowly insert the contact lens into the correct position.
  • Allow the contact lens to rest in your eye, then blink slowly a few times to let it settle.
  • Put your contact lenses in before applying makeup, and remove them before cleansing when removing makeup.
  • Depending on the type of contact lenses, you may need a storage/cleaning solution and a lens case for storage. Follow the instructions.
  • Do not clean contact lenses with tap water.
