Putting contact lenses on: step by step.

 STEP 1: Thoroughly wash and dry your hands with soap and a clean towel.

STEP 2: Rinse your lens with solution to remove any trace of debris. (If you’re using a new lens, or 1-DAY  Brand Contact Lenses, simply take them out of the package, no solution is needed) Tip: To avoid mixing up your contact lenses, always apply and remove the lens for your RIGHT eye first.

STEP 3: Place the lens on the tip of your index finger. Be sure the lens is correctly oriented by checking the inside–out marker.

STEP 4: Use your other hand to hold your upper eyelid so you won’t blink.

STEP 5: Pull down your lower eyelid with the other fingers of your applying hand.

STEP 6: Look up at the ceiling and gently place the lens on the lower part of your eye.

STEP 7: Slowly release your eyelid and close your eye for a moment.

STEP 8: Blink several times to center the lens. You’re all set.

STEP 9: If your lens feels uncomfortable, remove it and inspect for damage or debris. If it’s damaged, discard it. Otherwise, rinse with more solution and reapply.

Taking contact lenses off: step by step.
