For some people, the idea of sticking a finger in their eye to remove a contact is too much to bear. Fortunately, there is a product that is both gentle and sanitary that makes this process much simpler for the squeamish. The contact lens suction cup makes nightly contact lens removal an easy and quick process, keeping your eyes safe and comfortable.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Dip the suction end of the device in water to moisten it and help it adhere to your lens.

  2. 2

    Touch the suction cup to one of your contact lenses, as gently and as straight-on as possible, while holding onto the shaft portion of the suction device.

  3. 3

    Pull the suction cup straight out from your eye in a gentle, consistent motion.

  4. 4

    Deposit the lens into its case or receptacle sideways.

  5. 5

    Repeat steps with your other lens.
