Before inserting the lens, check to see it is free of any nicks or tears, if it appears damaged, throw it away. Check the lens has not turned inside out. Place the lens on the lip of your forefinger and hold above eye level; you are looking at the bowl of the lens from the outside.

Step 3 : Use the forefinger or middle finger of the other hand to lift the upper lid and place the lens on the eye.
