RGP Contact Lenses

INSERTING RGP CONTACT LENSES

  • Remove the lens from the case, ensuring you select the correct lens for each eye.
  • Place the lens in the palm of your hand and add a little wetting solution.
  • Place the lens on the tip of your forefinger.
  • Using the second finger of one hand raise the upper eyelid.
  • Using the second finger of the other hand pull down the lower eyelid and gently place the lens onto your eye.

REMOVING RGP CONTACT LENSES

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before removing your lenses.
  • For your left eye, place the forefinger of your left hand at the corner of your eye.
  • Place your right hand below the eye ready to catch the lens.
  • Watch again. Stare wide and with your left forefinger pull the eyelid towards your ear then blink.
  • The lens should just pop out of your eye.
