Dr. PG :

Hi

Dr. PG :

welcome to just answer

Dr. PG :

putting a contact lens in your eye seems much more difficult that it really is

Dr. PG :

you need to practice initially under supervision to know what you are doing wrong

Dr. PG :

either you can try putting them in front of someone, like a friend who is already using contact lenses

Dr. PG :

or you can go and get a repeat demonstration done by the optometrist who gave you the contact lenses

Dr. PG :

the key is to relax your eye and try not to sqeeze your eyelids

Dr. PG :

if you squeeze your eyelids, you will not be able to insert the contact lens or it will fall out

Dr. PG :

below is the link to videos demonstrating how to put and remove contact lens

Dr. PG :

try to follow this.
