Wear & Care

How to Wear Contact Lenses in 4 Easy Steps

  1. Before you start, wash your hands properly with soap, then rinse and dry your hands with a lint-free towel.
  2. Put the lens on the tip of your finger and check that the lens isn't inside out. If the edge curves out, it is inside out. It should look like a bowl with straight edges.
  3. Gently hold your upper eyelid with one finger so you don’t blink or get your eyelashes in the way, and carefully pull down your lower eyelid with your other fingers.
  4. Move the contact lens toward your eye steadily. Look upward as you place it on your eye, and slowly release your eyelid and close your eye for a moment to allow the lens to settle. Repeat for your other eye.

How to Take off Contact Lenses in 4 Easy Steps

  1. Ensure your hands are clean and dry, start with your right eye, then look up and carefully pull down your lower eyelid with your middle finger.
  2. Bring your index finger to your eye slowly until you touch the lower edge of the lens, and slide the lens down to the lower white part of your eye.
  3. Gently squeeze the lens between your thumb and index finger and remove it. Repeat for your other eye.
  4. Discard daily disposable contact lenses and make sure you clean and disinfect bi-weekly, monthly and yearly contact lenses.

Cleaning and Storage

  3. Rinse your lens thoroughly with more of your solution, and put it into your clean contact lens case.
  4. Repeat this for your other lens, close the case and leave your lenses to soak overnight.
