Things to remember
If a contact lens is irritating your eye after putting it in, take it out and make sure it’s not inside out or defected.
Taking Out Your Contact Lenses
Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.
Dry your hands with a clean towel.
Fill your contact lens case with fresh contact lens solution. Note: You can skip this step if you wear daily contact lenses.
Hold your upper eyelid with your alternate hand to prevent blinking. It’s best to hold your eyelid as close to the white part of your eye as you can.
Use the hand you’re taking out your contact lens with to pull down your lower eyelid. Again, it’s best to hold your eyelid as close to the white part of your eye as you can.
Slide the contact lens off the center of your eye using your pointer finger.
Pinch the contact lens between your thumb and pointer finger and remove it from your eye.
Place the contact lens in your contact lens case for proper storage. Note: You can place your contact lens in the trash if you wear daily contact lenses.
