This is my container that I use to keep my contacts in daily, any that snaps shut should be fine. Contacts seem scary with the whole concept of touching your eyes with your fingers, it's not though
First things first,start off with clean hands and open your container/case.
I prefer using my index finger and thumb to handle a contact. They are easily teared and make sure your hands are cleaned.
Ever thought about the wrong ways of putting on contacts? There is only one correct way of putting them on. A contact has two sides and must only be put onto the eye on its right side.
The is the CORRECT side that a contact should be facing. It has a bowl-like shape to it
This is the WRONG side. It is slightly different from the previous picture. It's shape is bowl-like but flares out. Sort of like a bowl being flattened out
In case you drop the contact, add some solution to the center in the palm of your hand, and rub gently in circles. This should help sanitize it from any bacteria
When putting on the contact, keep it on the tip of your finger to make it easier. If you have smaller eyes I suggest using your less dominant hand to prop open your eyelid as you lay it on
Once you layed on the contact, move your eye up, down, left and right. This excercise will help center the contact and also clear any air bubbles (blinking also works).
Your eyes may water but that is normal. Repeat steps for both the right and left eye and taa daaa, congratulations you just accomplished putting on contacts.
