Contact lenses help

Has anyone any tips about getting contact lenses in and out?

I just had a consultation and couldn’t get it at all!

did you manage to get one in at all? or were you blinking and kicking it out of your eye straight away?

try hold your finger steady in front of your eye with the lens pointed the right way and move your head forward if you found touching your eye difficult


when it does touch your eye try count a few seconds before blinking. takes a few for it to settle down otherwise it'll get blinked out of your eye

Have you practiced touching your eye without a contact lens?

I did manage to get both lenses in each eye, but it took a bit of work. I couldn’t get them back out, the optician did it for me.

I have no problem touching my eye without the lenses!

coming back out you will need a mirror the first time. with your thumb and first finger touch them onto the lens and pinch slightly and it jumps up off your eye

not pinching your eye or anything so you need to get a feel for when you're touching the lens and use very light pressure. Easier done than described genuinely

helps if you're not in any rush to take it out and if you can't get it after a few tries just close your eye for a little while then try again rather than going at it digging it out in a panic

It's like driving a car, it's impossible the first few times and then it just happens.
