Arguably one of the biggest fears of wearing contact lenses is dealing with the insertion and removal
process of the lens itself. In this article we will provide commonplace techniques that you can use to insert contact lenses. Depending on your
preference and ability there are two distinct techniques recommended. The first technique may be considered the easier of the two, where both hands
are used to manipulate both your eye and the lens itself. The second technique involves using one hand and may require some additional skill,
coordination and control.
Technique 1: Inserting Contacts Using Two Hands
Place the lens right side up on your dominant hand's index finger
Use the middle finger of the other hand to pull the upper lid up and look up
Use middle finger of the dominant hand to pull down the lower eyelid
Place the lens sitting on the index finger centrally onto your eye
Look down as you place the lens on the eye to properly position the lens
Slowly release your eyelids
Technique 2: Inserting Contacts with One Hand
Place the lens on your dominant hand's index finger
Pull down the lower eye lid with your middle finger
Look up as you place the lens on the white part of your eye
Remove your fingers from the eye and look down to position the lens
Close your eyes to help center the lens on your eye
