Yet Even More Common Worries for Potential and First-Time CL Wearers

By editor

Yet another common worry is that the lens won’t stick in place on the eye. This is usually because the lens is attracted to the wettest surface, and the finger being used for insertion is wetter than the surface of the eye. To remedy this, dry off the finger and let the lens air-dry for a few seconds before insertion. Another common worry is the fear that the contact lens will be put on inside-out. The good thing about GP contact lenses is that they can’t flip inside-out. But if it’s a soft contact lens, look at it closely. If the edge is flared out, it’s probably inside-out. Additionally, some soft lenses have manufacturers’ marks on them to help you know if they’re inside-out. Moreover, one last common worry is the fear that an eye problem may develop by repeatedly touching the lens. In order to prevent this from occurring always make sure to wash your hands first prior to handling your contact lenses.
