Cover sink drains. When taking contacts out, it is easy to accidentally drop them or lose your grip. If you are one of many people who take your contacts out in the bathroom, there is a good chance you have lost one or two down the drain. Be sure to lock sink drains or cover them with a paper towel to ensure you do not lose any.

Look up or to the side. When taking contacts out, this makes it easier to get a grip on the lens. Scratching  and pinching your eye can be painful. To avoid this, pull your lower lid down as you look up or to the side.

Renew solution. When taking your contacts out for the night , it is extremely important to have fresh solution in the case. Old solution can contract bacteria build up and possibly have negative effects on the eye.
