How to Insert Colored Contacts?

Inserting colored contacts is a relatively easy process that requires a few simple steps. Here's how to do it:

  1. Wash your hands: The first step is to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Dry your hands with a clean, lint-free towel.

  2. Open the package: Open the package of colored contacts and remove one lens.

  3. Inspect the lens: Hold the lens up to the light and check for any tears or damage. If the lens is damaged, do not use it.

  4. Prepare the lens: Place the lens on the tip of your index finger. Use your other hand to hold your upper eyelid open.

  5. Insert the lens: Look up and place the lens on your eye. Slowly release your eyelid and blink a few times to help the lens settle into place.

  6. Repeat for the other eye: Repeat the process for the other eye.


  • If you have trouble inserting the lens, try using a mirror to help guide the lens into place.
  • If the lens feels uncomfortable, remove it and try again. If the discomfort persists, contact your eye care professional.
  • Be sure to follow the recommended wearing schedule for your contacts, and replace them as directed by your eye care professional.
  • Always clean and store your contacts properly to avoid infection and damage.
