It's always hard to put on lenses for the first time. Just keep practising and you'll find it easier after a couple of days. It takes me just a few seconds to put on lenses now although I never wear them ^^

Just make sure that your eye is wide enough to fit the lens in. Practise touching your eye with your finger first a couple of times so that your eye gets used to it (make sure your finger is clean and has a little of solution on it first so that it doesn't sting).

The lens may be cold when you first put it in which may affect your eye's adjustment so what you could do is put your lenses in their case and put it in a bowl or the sink or whatever, filled with hot water (but not boiling) for a couple of minutes. You may need to put something on the lens case to weight it down.

If you need any more help just message me =]

When I first got mine, I was like, ew, yoiu expect me to put this thing in my eye? Hell no! And then later it got easier, even though I still hate them, even now. Someday, I might wear them everyday, but for now, only on special ocassions. =P

Oh yeah! I still remember the first time I had contact lenses! xD There were lots of tears and suffering going on xP. But the first time I got them, someone put them in my eyes for me...yeah weird I know =.= It wasn't any easier though, because my eyes weren't used yet to have a finger sticking to them ^^. But my "official" first time, when I put them myself...it was so hard! It took me maybe 20-30min...not only was I suffering because my eyes hurts, but the lenses on my fingers kept slipping >_<. Hehe but I got used to them though ^^ (well now I don't use them anymore, I return to the classic method, glasses lol)

Yeah when i first got them i stood in front of the mirror for 2 hours trying to put them in. but i could take them out rly easily right when i got them.

its weird how u dont care about touching your eye when ur putting contacts in them, but i get nervous when i attempt to just randomly touch my eye

My first time was really easy. Took me about 50 seconds to do it. Then taking it out was about 5 seconds. It's mostly cause I've seen my brothers and mom put then in many times. I never use mirrors when I put then in or take them out now.

I never had a problem with contacts, i have friend who absolutely sucks when she tries to put them on and take them off though.
What I do is use index and thumb to open my eye then with the other hand i'll have the contact on the tip of my finger and i just lightly put it in.
Oh and if your eyes get dry I use this sometimes: http://www.aclens.com/accessoryphotos/visine-for-contacts-.5-oz-6684-v3b.jpg
