Beginner’s Guide to Contact Lenses

I have to admit that contact lenses on the set for the first time is a bit awkward. The natural reflex when any object comes close to the eye is automatically close the eye. However, once the fear of putting the contact in your eye, you become a professional overnight. Just remember to follow these guidelines when inserting and removing your contacts: 1. Always wash and dry your hands before inserting and removing your contacts.

2. Use the recommended contact lens cleaning solution as described before inserting and after removing the lens. 3. Check your contact with the waste, waste, tears, or any other particles that can irritate the eyes. 4. Do not put your contacts in over a sink or an area with an open drain. If possible, insert your contacts on a flat surface. Thus, if the contact goes down, you'll have an easier time recovering.

5. Make sure you are getting the right contact in the corresponding eye. In general, each contact (at left and right) has a different prescription for that eye. Always double check to make sure that your contact with the left goes in the left eye and vice versa. 6. Keep eyelids open with one hand and either look to the ceiling or directly on the contact. 7. Take your index finger and the contact site (cup side up) into the white of the eye, if you are looking at the ceiling and then release the lower lid first and roll the eye down. 8. Then look down to the final positioning of the eye lens. 9. If you are looking directly at the lens before inserting it, just place the contact in the center of the eye very carefully and look down to the position of the lens. 10. To remove contact lenses, wash and dry hands. Then, keeping the eyelids open, look towards the ceiling and slide the contact on the white of the eye. 11. Then take your index finger and thumb and gently press the lens and remove it. 12. After deleting contacts, store them in the case of appropriate contact lenses. Following these steps, it will be easy insertion and removal of your contacts in no time at all. Remember to wash your hands before handling contacts and use only the recommended cleaning solution for contact lens. If you have problems or questions concerning the insertion or deletion of your contacts, call your eye care. They will be more than happy to answer your concerns.
