Wearing your contact lenses
Place the contact lens on the palm of your hand and make sure that it looks clean.

Ensure that the contact lens is not torn.

Ensure that the contact lens is the right way around. If the edges flare up slightly it is the wrong way around.

Place the contact lens on your forefinger. Using the forefinger on your opposite hand, firmly hold up the upper eyelid to prevent you from blinking. Then with the third finger on the hand in which you have the contact lens , firmly hold down your lower eyelid.

Gently place the contact lens onto your eye. Remove your fingers and close your eye for a few seconds.

The contact lens should have slipped into place.
Repeat on the other eye.
HINT: Try and get into the habit of always starting with the Right eye in order to avoid mixing up your lenses.
Removing your contact lenses
Once again always wash your hands with soap, rinse and dry them well with a clean towel.

Firmly pull down your lower eyelid with your third finger. Place your fore finger on the bottom edge of your lens and slide it down to the white part of your eye.

Gently pinch the contact lens between your finger and your thumb and remove the contact lens from your eye.
HINT: Try and get into the habit of always starting with the Right eye in order to avoid mixing up your lenses.
Just remember that practice makes perfect. At first it may seem difficult but within a few days or weeks you will be running through it.
Cleaning and Storing Contact lenses
Always wash your hands with soap, rinse and dry them well with a clean towel.

Fill your clean contact lens case just below the rim with your contact lens solution.

Remove the contact lens from your eye. Put the contact lens in the palm of your hand. Pour some contact lens solution over each side of the contact lens and gently rub for 10secsonds on either side.

Rinse either side of the lens with fresh solution.

Put the lens in the case and soak according to the recommended time.

Warning: NEVER use tap water to clean or store your contact lenses.
