Contact lenses help
Hi everyone,
This may sound silly, but I need some help with the contact lenses I intend to use hopefully for London Expo. I don't need help where to find them... I need some on help how to put them on :$. I manage to put them partially, but it always ends up with some bubbles inside it. I've looked on internet but I can't seem to get better. I still have a few weeks to practice. If anyone has had a similar problem I would appreciate very much any comment. I'm kinda desperate, lol.

My english sucks because hablo espanol :O

i might be able to help ^_^
i wear contacts alot, if you get bubbbles, all you have to do is try closing your eye and then using the back of your finger to stroke your bottom eye lid xD
it sounds weird, but it dose work, if that doesnt, you might be putting them in wrong >___<

Try pressing faily hard though when you stoke it so you move the bubble to the top and then i should work its own way out xD

I make sure to douse contacts with the cleaning solution before I put them in. This gets them wet, so they slide on better.

Then what I do is immediately close my eye after they've settled, grab a towel and press it gently but firmly against the closed eye. It seems to help a lot, and will hopefully get any trapped air out.

Like stated above, using your finger on your closed eyelid is the most effective way to position/smooth out contact lenses, try not to keep poking at it with your bare fingers as this could damage the contact lense or make it dirty (possibly leading to infection).

It also hurts less if you poke your eyelid rather than your actual eye. .

I've never managed to get an air bubble inside my contact lenses and i wear them everyday XD

When you put them in immediately close your eye and look to the left, right, up and then down with your eye closed. Open and do the same, the contact lens should be fine.

Just Remember, Internal Perfection Is Just A Quick Finance Away.

I agree with the posts above (also having worn lenses for nearly a decade now) one good tip is when you are putting them in, look directly at your finger tip the whole time, that way they go on in the right place and you wont have to wiggle them around so much.

There is always room for cake

i wear contact everyday and have never come across air bubbles. as said above make sure you let the lense settle in the eye first, looking down with your eyes closed normally lets it settle.

if your not used to wearing lenses i would get in practice now and build up how long they are in your eyes, so on the day your eyes are not sore from wearing them for a whole day.

tnx everyone for their tips. I'm getting better each day, lol. I envy the people that never managed to get air bubbles inside the lenses >_<. It shouldn't be that hard

contacts are nothing out of the normal, haha thats coming from someone who lives in them.....be yeah if you can get over touching your eye with your fingers then their great. got my coloured contacts last week,their pretty weird conpared to my normal ones, very freaky looking in the mirror and seing brown eyes and not my normal blue ones.

defiantly try contacts!
