First time wearing contact lenses? Today we will share with you what to expect on the first day. This can be helpful for those who are unsure on how it will be to wear contact lenses for the very first time.
You should be aware that there will be an adjustment period for your eyes to be in a comfortable zone. It means no irritation or uneasiness while wearing them. It may take 10-12 days for you to adjust with the contacts. You should expect to feel the edges of the contacts but eventually you would not remember that you wear contact lenses. If irritation occurs it might be due to wearing them inside-out or dirty.
The hardest part of wearing contact lenses is putting them inside your eyes. Before putting in them, make sure your hands are clean and dry. This is to prevent dust in contact with lenses. Remove the lens with your index finger gently as it can tear apart due to its softness. The lens must not be inside out. Put a drop of eye solution to lubricate it. Hold open your eyes, look straight ahead and insert the lens. when the lens rests against the eye then blink a few times.
