How To Remove Contact Lenses
Removing contact lenses is as important, if not more so, than wearing them. Removing them incorrectly could result in damage to the lens and injury to the eye. So care must be taken while removing contact lenses. Also, the same levels of hygiene should be maintained during removal of contact lenses as are observed while wearing them.

Removal of Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses:
The above two procedures relate to removal of soft contact lenses. The removal of rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses is similar to the procedure for soft lenses but the only difference comes when you have to touch the eye with your hand. In the case of RGP lenses, the only difference is that the outer corner of the eye is pulled towards the ear. The contact lens simply gets ejected on blinking the eye. The other hand should be kept ready to catch the falling lens.
