Assuming you want an article about putting in contacts: Wearing contact lenses is a convenient way to improve your vision, but it does take some getting used to. If you’ve never worn contacts before, the process of putting them in can seem a bit daunting. But don’t worry!
Before you start
Before you start, make sure you have everything you need:
-A clean, well-lit area
-Your contact lenses
-Contact lens solution
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, then dry them. Next, find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. If you’re right-handed, hold thecontact lens on your left index finger. If you’re left-handed, hold it on your right index finger.
Now gently place the contact lens on your eye. Make sure the contact lens is not inside out—you should be able to see it easily. If it’s inside out, simply take it off and start again. Once the contact lens is in place on your eye, close your eyes and roll them in a complete circle. This will help the contact lens move into the right position.
Wash your hands and gather your supplies
Before you begin, make sure your hands are clean. Wash them with soap and water, and dry them with a lint-free towel. Next, gather your supplies. You’ll need your contact lenses, lens solution, a clean surface to work on (like a bathroom counter), and a mirror.
Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down
Assuming you have your contacts and contact lens case with you, find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. You will need to have your head tilted back slightly and look up, so a reclined position is best. If you are sitting, rest your elbows on a table or surface in front of you. Open your contact lens case and take out the lens you will put in first.
Open the contact lens case and remove the lens
It’s important to start with clean hands when putting in your contacts. First, wash your hands with soap and water. Then, dry them with a lint-free towel. Next, open the contact lens case and remove the lens. Be sure to hold the lens on the edge so you don’t touch the part of the lens that will go over your eye.
Inspect the lens for any defects
Assuming you have your contacts and solution handy, start by gently rubbing the lens with your finger to make sure there are no deposits on the surface. Next, hold the lens up to the light to check for any rips or tears. If everything looks good so far, go ahead and put the lens in your eye (be careful not to touch anything else with the lens).
If the lens feels uncomfortable or doesn’t seem to be sitting right on your eye, take it out and check it again for any defects. Once you’re sure the lens is clean and free of any damage, try putting it in your eye again.
Place the lens on your finger
Assuming you already have your contact lenses in hand, it’s time to put them in your eyes! Start by washing your hands with soap and water. Next, find a comfortable spot to sit or lie down. Hold the lens on your finger like a tiny cup and gently place it on the white part of your eye. You may need to look up, down, or to the side to line up the lens with your pupil. Once the lens is in place, blink a few times. The suction caused by blinking will help keep the lens in place.
Apply the lens to your eye
When you are ready to apply the lens to your eye, start by holding the lens on your fingertip. Then, position the lens on your eye so that the edge of the lens is resting on your eyelid. Next, use your other hand to gently pull down your lower lid while looking up. This will help to form a pocket between your eyelid and eyeball. Once the lens is in place, release your lower lid and blink a few times.
Blink several times to adjust the lens
If you’re new to contacts, putting them in can seem daunting. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out.
1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. This will help to avoid any irritation or infection.
2. Open the contact lens case and remove the lens. Be sure to check the expiration date on the lens before using it.
3. Place the lens on your fingertip and hold it up to your eye. Blink several times to adjust the lens.
4. Once the lens is in place, slowly close your eye and roll your eyeball around to help distribute the tear film evenly over the surface of the lens.
Repeat the process with your other eye
If you’re new to contacts, putting them in can seem daunting. But once you get the hang of it, it’s a breeze! Here’s how to put in contacts:
1. Start by washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
2. Next, remove your contact lens from its case and rinse it with saline solution.
3. Hold the lens on your finger and place it on your eye. Make sure the lens is centered over your pupil.
4. Once the lens is in place, gently press down on your eyelid with your finger to keep the lens from moving around.
5. Repeat the process with your other eye!
Wash your hands again
When you have finished putting in your contacts, it is important to wash your hands again. This will help to remove any bacteria that may have been transferred from your fingers to the lenses.
To wash your hands properly, wet them with clean water and apply soap. Rub your hands together for at least 20 seconds, making sure to scrub all surfaces including the back of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails. Rinse your hands well with clean water. Dry them with a clean towel or air dry them.
What are contacts?
There are two types of contact lenses: soft and rigid gas permeable (RGP). Soft lenses are made of a water-loving material that allows oxygen to pass through the lens to the eye. RGP lenses are made of a gas-permeable material that holds its shape.
Contacts are placed directly on the surface of your eye. Unlike glasses, which rest on the bridge of your nose and ears, contacts sit right on your eyeball. That’s why it’s important to clean them and store them properly — you don’t want anything getting in between your eyeball and the lens!
Placing a contact lens on your eye is not as hard as it looks. In fact, it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Here are some tips:
1) Before you do anything, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. You don’t want to introduce any germs or bacteria to your eyes.
2) Start by holding the contact lens with the concave side (the side that forms a cup) facing up. Place the contact Lens on the tip of your index finger.
3) Use your other hand to gently pull back on your upper eyelid, exposing the white part of your eye (the conjunctiva).
4) Looking up, place the contact lens directly onto your iris (the colored part of your eye). Make sure the contact lens is not inside out — you should be able to see the edges of the lens.
5) Gently release your eyelid and blink a few times. The contact lens should now be in place.
