How to remove a gas permeable lens.
▪️There are a few different methods used to remove a gas permeable lens.
▪️First, there is the pull and blink method. Simply open your eye wide, then pull at the skin at the edge of your eyelid, and blink. The lens should pop off easily.
▪️Second, using your eyelids as shovels, position the very edge of the eyelid under the top and bottom of the contact lens and push to remove. This technique will require some practice because the eyelids must be at the proper position to get underneath the lens.
▪️Lastly, you can use a small plunger to remove the lens. Simply wet the tip of the small plunger with saline, press the plunger directly onto the lens and pull out to remove.
