Follow these easy steps and get in touch with us if you have any questions.
Wash your Hands
The first and most important step when you put your contacts in is to clean your hands. You can have all sorts of stuff on your hands even if they look clean — so make sure you give them a good wash with soap and warm water. Pat them dry.
Collect your Lenses
Wet the tip of your finger with contact lens solution and put the contact on the top of your finger. Make sure the coloured print is facing downward. If you can’t tell which side is printed, look for the curve in the lens. If it is curving up like a bowl you have it right.
Putting the Lens In
Hold your eyes open with your other clean hand. Make sure your eyes are wide open so you can put them in easily. Make sure the lens is applied to the centre of your eye. You can look up or look to the side if you find it tricky to put them in. Blink a few times to shift it into place. Repeat with the other eye.
Supernatural Side Effects
After you have learned how to put in costume contacts and nailed it on the first try, you might start to notice some supernatural side effects. Possible changes can include:
- increased confidence
- people gravitate towards you
- you can’t stop looking in the mirror
- addiction to coloured contacts
Please be aware that after you try costume contacts for the first time, you won’t want to ever take them out. But you have to!
Taking your Lenses Out
There’s no point learning how to put in costume contacts if you don't know how to take them out.
- Wash your hands and dry them
- Pull your eyelid down from underneath and look up
- Touch the lower edge of your lens with your finger and slide the lens down
- Meet your index finger with your thumb to pinch the lens lightly and remove it from your eye
- Clean your lenses
If you have trouble taking them out, don’t panic. Just pop some eyedrops in and try again. You will be able to remove them after another try.
Looking after your Lenses
It is important that you use proper aftercare for lenses that aren’t single-use. If they are single-use, toss them out.
For multi-use lenses follow the care instructions that come with the contacts. Clean them thoroughly and put them in the lens solution to preserve them for their next use.
