HOW TO PUT IN CONTACTS
IN 4 EASY STEPS

1 Before you start Wash your hands with soap (preferably non-perfumed, anti-bacterial liquid soap), then rinse and dry your hands with a lint-free towel.

2 Check that the lens isn't inside out To do this, just put the lens on the tip of your finger and hold it up to the light. If the edges flare out, it's inside out. Some lenses have a 1, 2, 3 indicator—make sure the digits aren’t backwards. It should look like a bowl with straight edges.

3 Using your right hand 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 REMOVE YOUR
CONTACTS IN 4 EASY STEPS

Ensure your hands are clean and dry, and start with your right eye, then look up and carefully pull down your lower eyelid with your middle finger.

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.

Gently squeeze the lens between your thumb and index finger and remove it. Repeat for your left lens.

Discard daily disposable contact lenses. If you wear dailies you can toss them out, but make sure you clean and disinfect bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses.

Important Things
To Remember

1 Wash Your Hands Ensure your hands are washed, clean and dry to avoid irritation.

2 Begin With The Same Eye Establish a habit of starting with the same eye. This way you won’t mix them up, since each eye has its own prescription.

3 Clean Contacts After Removal For bi-weekly and monthly lenses, always clean your contact lenses immediately after you remove them. If you wear daily disposable lenses, throw them away after removal.

4 Never Use Tap Water To Clean A Lens Or Lens Case Refer to your contact lens solution instruction guide for further information about how long to soak your contact lenses or how often you should change the solution if you don’t wear them every day.
