How to get rid of contact lens air bubbles?
I just got contacts a few days ago, and my contact in my right eye goes in perfectly, but when I try and put in my left side I get huge air bubbles in the lenses. I tried patting the contact, closing my eyes and massaging, blinking, and even sticking two fingers into my eye to smooth out the contact!
Is there any other way to get rid of the air bubble?
All help is appreciated, thanks!

I heart beets
usually when i get a bubble, the lens just pops out, and then you have to start all over again. Try rewetting the contact and when you put your contact in, move your eyeball down and the contact should "snap" into place. blink a few times and you should be good.

This happened to me after 2 weeks of wearing my contacts. I put it in, pat on top of it with my finger gently a few times and gently close my eyes squeezing the bubble part and it goes away! you just have to get used to rubbing your eyeball on top of the eyelid. keep playing around with it and it should work for you too.

hmm. interesting. sounds like a possible fitting issue. have you brought this up to your eye doc?

most bubbles quickly self-resolve, unless the lens is too steep

Heather Holland
I was told that once the lens is on your eye, while holding your lids back, continue to shift the eye up and down, left and right. Once you move your eye around, it pushes any excess air out of the lens. You move it in all directions to eliminate any remaining air bubbles. If you immediately let go of your lids after placing a contact on your eye with an air bubble behind it, the closing of the lid can cause the lens to pop out at times.
