How To Put In Contact Lenses Smoothly?


More than 60% of people currently wear corrective lenses, with 21% wearing contact lenses at least some of the time. It's easy to see why, given all of the incredible benefits they provide. Colored contact lenses allow you to expand your field of vision while avoiding the hassle of selecting frames.

Plus, if you play sports, you won't have to worry about them breaking or fracturing. You may, however, be concerned about how to put your colored contact lenses on. The truth is that inserting contact lenses is not as difficult as it appears. Taking them out is also simple; all you need is a little practice to get the hang of it.

Are you ready to learn how to insert and remove your colored contacts? This article will provide you with more information.

Preparing To Put Your Lenses In

The first step is to wash your hands! Because there is less chance of a reaction, unscented soap and water are your best friends. Also, avoid using soaps containing moisturizers. After all, you don't want any kind of residue on your hands. This residue can get into your lenses and irritate them.

Next, make certain that your lenses are not obstructed. While wearing contacts, the easiest way to do this is to hold the lenses at your fingertips in a well-lit room. Your lens is misaligned if the edge of the lens turns down slightly, indicating that it is inward facing. Before you put color contacts in, they should resemble a perfect cereal bowl.

After washing your hands and ensuring that the lenses are on the correct side, you're ready to insert them into your eyes. Pull your eyelids up with your dominant hand. This will feel strange at first, so go slowly (and take a few deep breaths if necessary!).

Try not to blink when you open your eyes. Then, with your other hand, gently pull your lower eyelid down. Make sure the lens is still balanced on the tips of your fingers as you do this.

Then, slowly raise the lens toward your eyes. It is critical that you look as far up as possible. Then, place the lens over your eyes very gently. You might be surprised at how easily and naturally it fits you. After positioning, you should blink or close your eyes for a few seconds to allow the lens to adjust itself.

When To Take Out Your Contacts

Now that you know how to put your contacts on, let's talk about how and when to take them off. In general, this will depend on the type of lenses you bought. For example, if you purchased daily disposable lenses, you will need to remove them at the end of each day.

Even if you purchased long-wear contact lenses, you should remove and clean them at least once a week, preferably more frequently. Sleeping with your contacts in may cause eye damage due to a lack of oxygen. Long-wearing lenses can also collect deposits, dust, and other debris that you don't want near your eyes for an extended period of time.

It is also important to remember that, in addition to prolonged wear, improper contact cleaning can result in eye infections. In most cases, you will need to take your contacts out before showering. Shower water contains bacteria and microorganisms that can get under your contacts and infect your eyes.

It is critical to clean your contacts on a daily basis. Also, after cleaning your contacts, replace the contact solution in the lens case. Using an old solution is essentially the same as creating a bacterial cauldron.

After a day of wearing your contacts, it's time to learn how to properly remove them. Before you begin, make sure you have washed your hands, just as you did when you put on your contacts. Also, to avoid slippage, wait until your hands are completely dry.

Next, lift your lower eyelid and look up at the ceiling. With your index finger, gently touch the lens and move it down to the white of your eye. Pinch it gently with your index and thumb as it approaches the edge of your eye. This will help the lens fall out faster and easier. Then, do the same thing with your other eye.

We've already mentioned how important it is to clean your long-lasting contacts after each use. It is critical, however, that you only use contact lens solutions for cleaning. Never clean your lenses with tap water because this can introduce bacteria and pathogens into your lenses. To prevent bacteria buildup, clean your lens case with contact lens solution at least every three or four days.
