Helpful Tips for Putting In Your Contact Lens

At first, contacts can be quite difficult to put in and take out. Here are some helpful tips for wearing contacts from eyecarecenter:

  • Always start with the same eye each time you place or remove your contacts. Making this a routine allows you to easily place the lens in the correct eye when you have different prescriptions.

  • Keep your fingernails trimmed to avoid accidentally scratching your eyes.

  • When first beginning to put in contacts, try doing it in front of a mirror. This can make it easier to see what you’re doing.

  • Make sure to keep a pair of glasses with prescription lenses handy. This allows you to choose which days you want to wear your contacts.
