Contact lenses may take some getting used to. If you are wearing contact lenses for the first time, it can be especially difficult to insert them or take them out, but this should become easier over the next few weeks.
To prevent problems with your contact lenses, be sure to only wear them as prescribed and remove them every night before going to bed.
If you opt for daily contact lenses, throw them away every night. If you select extended wear contact lenses, you will need to store them in fresh contact solution every night and clean them as directed by your doctor.
Because they put your eyes in direct contact with your hands, contact lenses also increase the risk of bacterial infection. To reduce your risk of complications, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before inserting or removing your lenses.
