Looking forward, use the middle finger of the hand holding the contact lens to gently pull down the edge of the lower eyelid, and the middle finger of the other hand to gently pull up the edge of the upper eyelid. At this time, the black eyeball should be completely exposed; The index finger is gradually moved closer to the eye, and the lens is attached to the eyeball; the eye looks down gently, slowly release the finger that pulls the eyelid, and blink naturally. Wear it for no more than 10 hours a day and take it out before going to bed.
