Putting in UltraHealth lenses.
- Wash your hands.
- Choose a method that works best for you. Use either an inserter, or stabilise the lens between your index and middle finger or use three fingers to balance the lens. Fill the bowl of the lens to the top with preservative-free saline to avoid air bubbles.
- Lean forward and tuck your chin to your chest. Your nose should be perpendicular to the floor. It may be helpful to place a mirror flat on the counter to look into as you insert the lens.
- Pull up on your upper eyelid by placing the fingers at the base of the lashes. Pull down on the lower lid with the ring finger of the hand holding the lens, and gently insert the lens.
- As the saline is displaced, the lens will gently settle onto the surface of the eye. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO PUSH THE LENS TOO FORCEFULLY ONTO THE EYE or it will be uncomfortable.
