- Using the index fingers on both hands, press on the opposite sides of the contact lens. You can make your nails point away from your eyeball by angling them.
- This necessitates the use of the sides of your fingers or the tips of your fingers just beneath the nail.
- The idea is to press the lens from either side, causing it to travel forward and easily come out. Don’t apply too much force.
- Experiment with different finger arrangements and angles. You’d eventually locate one that suits your needs.
The idea is to gently press the contact against the eye for approximately a second before moving the eyeball back and forth slightly. This aids in the pickup of the touch from your finger by the fluids on your cornea. To secure the lens in the eye, move the eyeball carefully down and then around without blinking.
Use the middle finger of your non-dominant hand to pull up on the top lid and the middle finger of your dominant hand to pull down on the lower lid to keep your eyelids open. Looking upward, lightly touch the bottom of the contact lens with your dominant hand’s index finger.
You can use contact lenses and have long nails, but there are a few things to keep in mind to avoid damaging your eyes. If necessary, trim the nails on the index and thumb while keeping the rest of the nails long.
A lens adheres better to moist surfaces (like the eye) than to dry surfaces, thus if your finger is too wet, it will stick to your finger and won’t adhere well when you try to put it on the eye. Place the lens on the eye gently. DO NOT FORCE OR PRESS THE LENS ON THE EYE.
Sleeping with your contacts in for long periods of time increases your chances of getting an eye infection. Your cornea will begin to expand and swell if you don’t get enough oxygen. Keratitis is a disorder in which the physiology of the eye is disrupted and destroyed.
Rather than pulling it out, place contact lens solution or eye drops in your eyes, close your eyes, gently massage your eyelid, and blink several times. Most likely, the contact lens will slide further down, where you can reach it with your fingers and pinch it out.
If this happens, rinse the stuck contact and your eye with a steady stream of sterile saline, multipurpose contact lens solution, or contact lens rewetting drops for a few seconds. After that, close your eye and gently massage your top eyelid until the lens begins to move.
When it comes to removing contact lenses, the most typical issue is that they get caught on the eye. Dry eyes are the most common cause of this. Here are some suggestions for removing a contact lens that has been caught in your eye: Using lubricating drops, lubricate the eye.
