    Before you atart to put the contact lenses in your eyes, you should wash your hands clean and sit in front of a mirror. Then put the lens on the tip of the index finger of your right hand. Make sure take the right lens for your eye and it is not inside out. Next, use the fingers of the left hand to raise the upper eyelid and the right hand to pull down the lower eyelid. Then you can place the lens on your eye with your eyes staring ahead to the mirror. Finally, release your eyelid and try to blink to make the lens in place.

    Wearing contact lenses sometimes make you convenient. But most of people may troubled by the way of wearing contact lenses. For people have small eyes, it is a little difficult. Nevertheless, that's not a big question. Just wash your hands and put one lens on the tip of your right index finger with the edges turned up. Then try to open your eyes as wide as possible. And the pull down your eyelid and raise up your upper eyelid with your other hand, then put the contact lenses gently to your eyes.

    The way to wear contact lenses is almost the same whether your eyes are big or small. Just follow the steps, and you may find it only a quite easy task. Firstly, wash your hands with soap and dry your hands with a towel or an air dryer. Secondly, remove one contact from its case. Unless the prescription is the same for both, remember to check whether it’s for your right or left eye. Thirdly, place the contact on the index finger, use the index finger of your opposite hand to pull your upper eyelid upward and use the middle finger of your dominant hand to pull your lower eyelid downward. Fourthly, move the contact towards your eye calmly and steadily and gently place the contact on your eye. At last, blink slowly so as to not dislodge the contact. As you become more experienced, you can finish this in only 1 to 2 minutes.
