Here are some tips to help you remove your lenses easily and safely. Whether you're a regular or a beginner, these tips will help you avoid pain and accidents.
One of the first things you should do before removing your lenses is to wash your hands thoroughly. Remember that your hands are a breeding ground for bacteria, and you risk contaminating your lenses if you don't clean them properly. Use mild soap and scrub your hands well for at least 20 seconds. Rinse with clean water and dry with a clean towel.
What is the difference between hard and soft lenses?
Simply put, rigid lenses are made of a harder material than soft lenses. They are more durable and last longer than soft lenses. They are also ideal for correcting more complex vision problems, such as astigmatism. On the other hand, soft lenses are more comfortable to wear than rigid lenses. They are more permeable to oxygen, which makes them easier on the eyes for a beginner.

Removing soft lenses

If you wear rigid lenses, the method is slightly different. Look down and gently pull your upper eyelid with the finger of your dominant hand.

You can also apply light pressure to the lens with your finger to make it move.
Cleaning your lenses
