- Shake the lens container and check to see that the lens is floating in the solution.
- Peel back the foil closure to reveal the lens. By stabilizing the lens package on the tabletop, you will minimize the possibility of a sudden splash.
Occasionally, a lens may adhere to the inside surface of the foil, when opened, or to the plastic package itself. This will not affect the sterility of the lens. It is still perfectly safe to use. Carefully remove and inspect the lens following the handling instructions.
Note: Always start with the same eye each time. Making this a habit will ensure that you always place the correct lens on the correct eye.
