Removing soft Contact lenses

Removing Soft Lenses

Removing contact lenses can be a daunting prospect for first-time wearers.

Even long-time wearers can find adapting to something new a bit pesky. What can you do?

Relax! Everything gets easier once you’ve had some practice at it—and that includes removing contacts. Don’t fret if you’re having a little trouble at first. That’s entirely normal.

To help out, here are some tips for removing your contact lenses that will make the process  go a little smoother.

Make sure the lens is centered on your eye before trying to remove it. Cover the other eye; if your vision is blurred, the lens is either off center or not on the eye at all. Locate the lens with a mirror and re-center it.

Pull Down Lower Eyelid:

Look upward, keeping your head level. Pull down the lower lid of your eye with your middle finger.

Slide Lens Down:

While looking up, place the tip of your index finger on the lower edge of the lens and slide it down onto the lower white part of your eye.

Pull Lens Off Eye:

Still looking up, squeeze the lens gently between your thumb and index finger. Gently remove the lens from the eye.
