How to Practice Putting in Contact Lenses

Video transcription

Hi! My name is Elton Hall and I'm from Texas State Optical in Austin, Texas. I’m here on behalf of Expert Village, and I'm going to show you how to insert and remove contact lenses. If you're having problems on putting in the contact lens, what you can do without the contact lens is you can actually practice. What you want to do is you want to take some solution. Whatever you use. Wet your fingertip down. Make sure that your fingertips are clean at all times. You want to wash your hands real well. You can actually wet the fingertip just like that and you're going to open up your eyelids just like you learned how to do earlier. Open up the eyelids. You can actually take your fingertip and touch right on the edge of it. For me, it's a little bit different because I think that your eye is a little bit more sensitive on the very top portion of the eye. What you want to do is take and look away from it and just touch right there. A lot of people are scared to touch their eye because they're scared that it's going to burn. If your fingertips are clean, if your hands are clean, you shouldn't have any problems with your eye burning or anything like that. Just make sure that you wet the fingertip down. Just a little bit of moisture on the fingertip with any solution just like that and take it and touch right there.
