I sometimes wear soft contact lenses, and I always have to be in front of a mirror to put them in. Being in front of a mirror lets me see the lens on my finger and I can watch the lens as my finger approaches my eye. I can see where the lens is when I put it on my eye, and then I know how to move my eye around in case it's not perfectly centered. I can also blink a few times and then see if the lens is still in place.
I have never been able to put the lenses in without a mirror. Without a mirror I can't tell how the lens is seated on my eye. If I blink, sometimes the lens falls out.
How can I put in my contact lenses without a mirror?
