contacts this morning

Nothing epiphany-like in the contact placement. 10 minutes.

My biggest problem right now is when the contact schloomps onto my finger instead of my eye. I can tell at this point that it really is just a matter of time...

dry fingers
I have the most luck with a dry finger, too. and I have worn contacts off and on for years. What I do is just dry my finger with one hand and then transfer the contact to that index finger what is now dry. It helps that schloomping problem.

What he said
I jumped in to ``add a comment'' to say pretty much what chriswicke said... dry your finger first.

If you're still having trouble with it, two things to try:

* leave a little air pocket under the contact when you put it in your eye, pulling the finger away, and then flattening out the pocket either with your finger or with your eyelid.

* once the edges of the lens have made contact with your eyeball, slide the lens slightly to the side while pressing it further into position.

I was going to say in the previous post and forgot - when rolling your eyeball around with the lens on it, i vote for keeping the eye closed; you don't want the contact popping out and landing somewhere (sink, floor, etc)

Oh, and I got inspired to try wearing my contacts again, dug them out and found that they expired in March 2006... oh well. :-)
