Your contact lens will stick to the "least wet" thing it is in contact with. Try putting a couple of drops of solution on your finger so that the lens can easily move off your finger onto your eyeball. The easiest way that I find to put a lens in is to place it on the eyeball and then slowly move your eye (ie look away). Because of the shape of the lens, it moves with the eyeball and "off" your finger.

How do you take out and put in contact lenses without totally freaking out?

Practice, practice, practice. It takes time for you to get the hang of putting lens in and putting your finger so close to your eye. It took me about 2 months to get to the point of being able to quickly and comfortably get my lens in and out. I find that squirting a small amount of lens solution in my eye just before taking out the lens helps to lubricate the lens and make it easier to move out of place. Also, practice simply touching your eyes with your (clean!) finger to get used to doing that.

How do you remove a contact lens that is stuck to your eye?

Removing stuck contact lens can be difficult. Removing stuck contact lens can also be uncomfortable. If you have a problem removing stuck contact lens, do not panic.

Put your index finger on your lower eyelid and pull the eyelid down. Continue removing stuck contact lens by touching the lower edge of the contact lens with the tip of a finger. Try removing stuck contact lens by looking up and trying to slide the lens down toward the white of your eye. Removing stuck contact lens at this point can be tricky if it is truly stuck. Try looking up and holding the lens under your index finger. Move your thumb and try to compress the lens carefully between your thumb and index finger. Removing stuck contact lens may become rather aggravating so use some patience and try a few re-wetting drops. When you are removing stuck contact lens and you wear hard contacts you can try using a plunger. You will not have any luck removing stuck contact lens if they are the soft variety. Back to removing stuck contact lens of the hard variety with a plunger. This works well and is very effective. You moisten the cup of the plunger and place it right on top of the lens. The lens should be easily removed because it will stick to the plunger. Removing stuck contact lens this way usually is the best plan. When you have soft contacts, removing stuck contact lens is a little trickier. You have to use your fingers and just keep lubricating your eye. Removing stuck contact lens is not much fun but it can be done. If you really have a serious problem removing stuck contact lens, contact your ophthalmologist. ---------------- Today I had two contact lenses in the same eye (don't ask) and could not get them out even with the help of some family members. They were stuck together and lubricating drops just got the pair to move together, but not out. After watching the demo of professional contact lens removal tools over on good old YouTube, I got inspired and decided to use a pair of latex gloves. I kept them dry, touched the lenses, squeezed, and Bingo! out on the first try.

How do you get a contact out of your eye?

First, wash your hands so you don't get any bacteria in your eyes from finger-to-eye contact. Then take both of your index fingers and place them on the corners of the lens. If you're more comfortable using your thumb and index finger, by all means do so. Push both fingers inward and it will lift off your eye. Make sure you rinse the lens with Lens Solution and keep it in a Lens box/carrier.

How do you put a contact lens in?

You will first want to make sure your hands are clean as you'll be touching your contacts and eyes with them so wash well. Carefully remove the lens from your case. Give it a gentle shake prior to removing it from the case so the solution can loosen the lens should it be stuck to the case at all. Next, slide the lens into the palm of your hand and rinse with the correct contact lens solution. When your index or middle finger is dry, or mostly dry, place the contact lens at the tip of the finger. With the fingers and thumb of your other hand, pull open your upper and lower eyelids. Position the lens on your eye while looking upward or forward. Close your eye gently, roll your eyes in a complete circle to settle the lens into place and then blink. Double check the lens placement by looking in the mirror to see that it is centered on the eye. Your vision should be clear and the lens should feel comfortable in your eye if it is correct. Repeat the steps for the second eye. Check out the related links area below for a great site on contact lenses that can likely answer any further questions you have about your lenses.
