Should I remove my contact lenses before or after I remove my makeup?

Makeup Removal With Contact Lenses

Makeup removal should occur after contact lenses are removed. This applies to both hard and soft contact lenses. This is important because during the process of removing makeup, debris can enter the eye. If this debris adheres to the contact lenses it can result in discomfort as well as an increased risk of infection if the debris damages the surface of the eye.
