Wearers of contact lenses share their views:

  • I use the EyePOD Contact Lens Kit to easily insert and remove my contacts. I just take the adapter, put it on the EyePOD, place a drop of water on the center of the adapter, place the adapter on the contact (my fingers never touch it anymore, no more worrying about how clean they aren't) then open my eye wide, look into the center of the adapter, and bring it to my eye, a light press, then the contact is on my eye, perfectly 1 try every time, it's pretty much the same to take them out
  • Wash your hands very well (personally, I like to wash with lukewarm water, because it cleans better than hot) and dry them properly. After that, take the hand you feel most comfortable with and grab your contact. With you free hand, take your index finger and pull towards the sky and your thumb and pull towards the ground. Then, look down (it may seem like you're poking yourself in the eye and you could mess up) and apply the contact to your eye. Next, take the contact finger and pull your bottom lid down and make sure that the contact matches your eye or until the contact sticks to your eye. Once you have it in your eye correctly, blink (but not too hard). If it feels weird, close your eye and rub the top part, because you may have an air bubble.
  • Your optometrist or contact lens fitter is obliged to demonstrate to you how to insert and remove lenses correctly. There are several different methods; you need to find one that will work for you. I strongly suggest that you do not follow the advice given below - if you insert or remove your lenses incorrectly, it can be very harmful to your eyes. And never take advice on solutions from anyone other than a qualified optometrist. I've seen some nasty cases of permanently damaged eyes caused by improper use of contact lenses and solutions. Your sight is precious - don't mess around with it!
  • Add two drops of Renu solution (doctors recommend sterile saline solution) and put the lens in the eye. Since there is liquid, it will stick fast. Rotate your eyes with the eyelids completely open. That's it.

    It's important that you go to an optometrist and get them to show you how to look after your lenses and also how to put them in.

  • Pull down the lower lid of your eye with your right hand and hold the top up with your left hand. Then, using the index finger of your right hand, put the contact in your eye. Wait for a second, then slowly remove your hand. The contact should stay in place on your eye.
  • I put the left hand over the top lid and pull it up. I hold the bottom lid down and place the wet contact on my middle finger. I hold my head straight and roll my eyes to look down. I touch the lens on my eye making sure my lashes don't touch the lens. The key is looking down with my eyeball.
  • Put an eye drop in each eye directly before placing the lens in. This will help lubricate and seal the contact to the front of the eye. I find that looking SLIGHTLY upwards helps me, but it may vary for you. Do not move your eyes until you have blinked a few times, and the contact should pretty well seat itself.

    If you are still experiencing difficulty, take your contacts into any glasses store, or your eye doctor, and they will show you. Bring your own solution.

  • First, practice touching the white of your eye, but not with your fingernails! You need to do this, or you will immediately blink when you try to put the contact in your eye for the first time. I usually look towards my other eye and then touch the eye towards the outside. You really need to get comfortable doing this before you will be able to put a contact in.

    When I'm ready to try putting it in my eye, I also look towards my other eye and put it in towards the outside. Don't put it in over your iris. I usually put a drop or two of saline in the lens before I put it in my eye. After a couple of blinks, it will find its way over your iris.

  • The first time you try it, you will get EXTREMELY frustrated and want to give up. The same thing goes for trying to get them out. It felt like I'd never get them in the first time.
