How to wear contact lenses:
Assuming the whole world has only eyes for you, you should make sure that you are able to see them good and clear. If you do not have 20/20 vision glasses are very becoming and give an air of intelligence to a person. But if they don't suit you, you can always turn to lenses.
Myths and Legends
It is impossible to get contact lenses stuck behind your eyes. They can break but they don't tent to shatter in your eye. You can not loose them in your eye, they are in there somewhere or you did indeed drop them on the floor, so mind where you step...
How to fit contact lenses:
1. Wash, rinse and dry hand thoroughly
NOTE: It is very important not to let water near you lenses. A wet finger could cause a lenses to flatten, avoid using fingernails when handing the lenses as you could scratch them.
2. Learn the perfect routine, then stick to it. Always insert and apply in the same order to prevent confusion or skipping a vital part of the ritual.
3. Pour the lens from container, with the storage fluid, into the palm.
4. Using a mirror examine the eyes for any debris, tears or excessive watering before insertion. And check the contact itself is intact and not chipped or buckled. Do not use if damaged.
5. Is the lense the right side up?
6. The actual insertation. Until now its been all talk and no action
a) Hold the upper eyelid open to stop it blinking shut, which will be its involuntary action.
b) Une the Tumb to pull the lower eyelid down.
c) Look upwards at the celing and with your finger place the lens onto the white part of the eye (with more practice you will eventually just put the lens directly onto the centre of your eye.) It will wiggle the lens naturally in a wink of an eye, literally, into the right position.
d) Try NOT to panic, squirm or do any sudden movement as it will prolong the procedure.
e) Remove your finger and try not to blink. Allow the lens to fix into position by looking down.
7. Relax and close the eye for a moment, when you open your eyes everything should look crystal clear.
8. If the eye feels dry use one or two of your eye drops.
How to remove contact lenses:
Don't panic, you got it in your eye, it is possible to get it our.
1. Ensure your hands are clean and dry with no scratchy unfilled nails.
2. Look up - or to the side - and position the contact lens on the white part of your eye sliding it across by using the forefinger.
3. pinch contact lens gently between the thumb and the forefinger. (with longer nails this will take more time and practice)
4. It should come out easily, but practice makes perfect.
5. Place the lens on the tray to be cleaned and repeat the progress for the other lens, giving your eyes a chance to recover.
