    Default 1 Day Acuvue Moist Contacts Stick to Your Finger

    How do you put your contact lenses in without having them stick to your finger? Are 1 day Acuvue Moist contacts better than most about sticking?

    I have found all contact lenses stick to a wet finger. Some have recommended they keep drying the applicating finger with toilet tissue or facial tissue but I have seen these little sheets called "Aquablotters" which are lint free towlettes and they work quite well for me though sometimes it still takes a couple of attempts before it sticks to my cornea and not my finger!

    You mean these? I found the picture on line. Are these dry towelettes? Most of the ones I've encountered were moist.

    Yes those are exactly the ones I bought on line. They are small like the size of a pocket kleenex tissue and they are dry. They really do work quite well. A bit overpriced in my opinion but haven't found anything else quite as good as these!

    Thanks for the tip, petlover1. Does anybody else use these? I wonder how well they would work to wipe your glasses clean?

    Good. I'm glad I found the right product. Here's a bigger picture of the container.

    I have this problem too, but I do not use anything fancy or that costs more money to fix the problem. Unlike some other contact brands, like Colorblends, Acuvue moist does have a tendency to stick to my finger instead of going into my eyeball. I have found that if I slightly push on my eyeball as I am placing the contact onto my eye it will go in very easily and sometimes I find that I will have to add a roll to my finger. However, even once in awhile a get a stubborn one. In this case I will try to dry off my fingers a little, or clean the contact if it becomes too dry to stick to my finger.

    I am becoming very frustrated. I can't seem to get the lenses in my eyes. They keep sticking to my finger or I miss. I have thrown away more than I've used!

    Which of the things on this page have you tried? All of them? Most of them seem to involve a dry finger.

    I find Moist contacts the hardest to put in compared to all I've tried (Oasys an TruEye being the other two). After almost 9 months of wearing contacts and now being able to put Oasys contacts in on first try almost every time, the Moist contacts still give me grief when putting them in.

    I found placing a drop of the saline solution they come in on the inside of the contact right before I try to put them in helps - as does squirting them with some multi-purpose solution does too.

    I guess in this case "moist" also means "sticky." Thanks for the contact lens handling tip, cala37.

    I guess in a way that makes them priceless.

    I'm new to contacts and have started with these. The doc told me to try and make sure my finger is quite dry, which is certainly *isn't* when I've just pulled the lens out of the container. To avoid dust or lint, I rub my fingers (RH) against each other to try and get off the excess, or I rub them on the back (or palm) of my left hand. She has suggested picking it up from the container, moving it to the palm or back of the left hand to get it in position, then use the RH finger to sweep up under the lens to scoop it up. If the applying finger is too wet, the lens sticks (so my rubbing prior to scooping). However, between drying, and holding in place for a second or two, that has seemed to work.

    Yesterday was a mystery though - I thought I'd put it in, but by the end of the day I suspected it flipped inside out during application and had adhered to my fingertip without my knowing! My left eye is never as good as my right even with prescription glasses, so I thought the wonky vision was either "one of those things" or that the contacts had not been manufactured properly for that prescription. No sign of the contact when I went to remove it last night! Today I can see much better.
