How to care for your soft contact lenses:
- Wash Your Hands – Before handling your soft contact lenses you’ll want to wash your hands and make sure to dry with a lint free towel. Be aware of your fingernail length so you don’t scratch your lens or eye.
- Inspect the Lens – Check for any tears or rips and ensure that it isn’t inverted. You can tell if your lens is inverted if upon inspection on your fingertip the edges appear to flare out slightly.
- Inserting the Lens – Carefully pull down on your bottom lid while firmly holding your lash up to prevent blinking. You’ll want to focus your sight on a steady point using the opposite eye and simply place the lens on the center of your cornea.
- Eye Drops – If your lens feels dry one or two drops of lens eye drops is recommended.
- Removing the Lens – Again, you will want to wash your hands before handling your lenses. Simply slide the lens down onto the white of your ey, gently pinch the lens and pull away from your eye.
- Cleaning – Your lenses must be cleaned after wearing. Place the lens in the palm of your hand and put three or four drops of multi-purpose solution on the lens. Gently rub in a back and forth motion for about ten seconds on each side. Then place in lens case over night.
