6 STEPS ON HOW TO REMOVE CONTACT LENS
It is important that you clean your lenses immediately upon removal rather than just prior to inserting the lens.First, wash your hands, and when you’re done, make sure they’re clean and dry.
1. Look up and pull your lower eyelid down with the middle finger of the hand you write with.
2. Put your index finger on the lower part of the lens.
3. Slide the lens down into the white part of your eye.
4. Squeeze the lens gently between your pointer finger and thumb and carefully remove it.
5. Repeat these steps for the other lens.
6. After removing your lens, use a daily cleaner on the surface of the lens. Rub the lens in the palm of your hand and rinse thoroughly with saline. The lens should then be stored in soaking solution and left overnight.

Wash and rinse hands before handling contact lenses. Use a mild non-cosmetic soap. Soaps with perfumes, oils, or lotions leave a film on the hands, which you may transfer to your lenses and cause eye irritation or blurred vision.
Dry hands with a clean, lint-free towel.
If you use hairspray, use it before you put in your contacts. It’s also a good idea to keep your fingernails short and smooth to avoid damaging your lenses or scratching the eye.
After your contacts are in your eyes, put on makeup so you don’t get any on your lenses. Take out contact lenses before you remove makeup for the same reason.
Different types of contact lenses require special care and certain types of products. Always use the disinfecting solution, eye drops, and enzymatic cleaners your eye care professional recommended. Some eye products or eye drops are not safe for contact lens wearers.
Never use tap water directly on lenses, and never put contact lenses in your mouth to "rinse" them. Microorganisms can live in even distilled water, causing infection or sight damage.
Clean each contact by rubbing it gently with your index finger in the palm of your other hand. Most multipurpose solutions don’t have “No Rub” on their labels anymore. Lightly rubbing your contact removes surface buildup.
Clean your contact lens case every time you use it with either sterile solution or hot tap water. Let it air dry. Replace the contact lens storage case every three months.
