Greetings, fellow contact lens enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into the exciting world of applying contact lens solution with finesse and flair. So, hold onto your monocles and let’s get started!
Prep Yourself and Your Contacts (the BFFs of Your Eyes)
Before even considering putting those stylish lenses on your eyes, make sure your hands are squeaky clean. No, seriously, this is the time to display your supreme hand-washing skills! Lather up with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, as if you’re about to win a hand hygiene award—a virtual medal, of course.
Now, onto the real stars of the show—your contacts! Rinse them gently with a multipurpose solution that you and your lenses both love. This step is essential to wash away any debris or microscopic cheerleaders that might have accompanied them.
Bottle Etiquette: Show Some Love
Alright, folks, attention is required here! Contact lens solution bottles deserve a little respect for all the wonderful work they do. Shake the bottle gently to mix up the solution like a skilled bartender prepping a fancy cocktail.
Remember to check the expiration date too! An expired solution may frown upon your lenses and leave them longing for cleaner pastures.
Time to Dance: The Lens Soaking Fiesta
Oh, the moment is here, my friend! Place the lenses in the palm of your hand and pour a generous amount of solution over them. Imagine yourself as a famous chef seasoning your lenses with this magical elixir – bon appétit!
Now, at this point, you could always play some calm background music to set the mood for your lens soaking fiesta. A little ambiance never hurts, right?
No Touchy-Touchy: The Golden Rule
As tempting as it may be to flex your finger gymnastics skills, avoid touching the tip of your solution bottle or the lens itself. Just like when you decorate cupcakes, keeping your hands off ensures a clean and hygienic masterpiece.
Few Final Touches for a Grand Finale!
Rinse your contact lens case with fresh solution. Give it a good wash and dry to avoid any leftover residue from the previous show. They deserve the spotlight too, you know!
Finally, store your lenses in their luxurious, solution-filled condo, a.k.a. their case. Pop them in, carefully seal the case, and bid a heartfelt goodbye—for now!
