LENS INSERTION


For each eye, ensure the lens is not inside out. Place on your index finger to verify the shape. (Fig. 1 & 2 see below) Using your other hand’s index and second finger hold up the upper lid and hold down the lower lid. Place the lens on to the eye. (Fig. 3 see below) Repeat the procedure for the other eye. 


LENS REMOVAL  


Insert 1-2 drops of saline or wetting solution in eye and wait 15 seconds. Look up and hold down lower lid. Slide lens onto white of eye (sclera) and gently lift off using thumb and forefinger at the widest point (3 & 9 o’clock) of the lens. (Fig. 4 see below) It is important not to crease or pinch the lens in the center or at the bottom edge to avoid damaging the material. Repeat procedure for the other eye.
