Anyone who has worn contact lenses for a long time will not remember how it is - not to be able to put them on? Everything is so simple that, over time, the process becomes automatic and routine. Like brushing your teeth or making tea. But beginners are always calmer if there are clear recommendations.
It is necessary
- Neutral soap
- Clean towel
- Universal solution for contact lenses
Wash your hands with neutral soap, free of foreign particles and impurities.
Dry them out. If you use a towel for this, make sure that it does not leave the smallest lint on your fingers. They can get on the outer surface of the lens and injure the lining of the eyelid.
Sit in front of a mirror. Prepare a case with lenses and a solution with a special liquid to disinfect them.
Open one part of the case and take out the lens.
You can use special soft tweezers, or you can let the lens "stick" to the pad of your index finger.
Use your right hand to slide the lens over your left eye and your left to insert it into your right.
Bring the lens to your eyes and see if it's turned inside out?
You can determine this by its shape. The inverted lens is like a soup bowl, with curved edges, the lens in its normal position resembles a bowl, with evenly rounded edges.
Check for damage on the lens? Does it have smooth edges? Has a speck stuck to it?
Rinse the lens in lens solution. It is good that a few drops of solution remain inside the lens, this will help it make softer contact with the eyeball.
Holding the lens on the index finger of the right hand, pull the upper and lower eyelids of the left eye with the middle and index fingers of the left. Look up and bring the lens to your eye.
Gently place the bottom of the lens against the bottom of the eyeball.
Close your eyes and then blink a few times. This will help the lens get into a comfortable position.
Repeat the same procedure for the right eye.
