Watch this video and then follow the steps to learn what to do.

  • Don’t Panic. Contact lenses rarely get stuck
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, and do not dry them
  • Moisten your eye with saline solution
  • Gently massage your eyelids for a minute
  • Flip the upper and lower eyelids
  • Try to place the new lens in, moving it around to dislodge the old one
