Contact Lenses – How hypnosis can help you feel comfortable inserting lenses

Do you find yourself tensing up when putting in contact lenses?

Does the thought of having something in your eye prevent you from using lenses?

Our eyes are precious and delicate organs. In the course of evolution we have acquired a number of clever and sensitive mechanisms to protect our eyeballs from harm. Eyelids provide a soft, flexible, waterproof cover that we can pull down almost faster than you can measure. Tear ducts produce a constant flow of lubricant, spread with every blink. Eyelashes filter out dust and grit. Eyebrows direct the flow of sweat outwards.

And if the smallest particle should get past these defenses, highly sensitive nerve endings instantly react with near intolerable discomfort. This triggers an uprush of tears and sets off a rapid-fire blink response to wash it out. If that is not enough, we are driven to take whatever other measures we can dream up to remove the invader by any means possible.

Then you go and deliberately insert an enormous object directly between your eyeball and your eyelid. Just asking for trouble!

Getting comfortable with putting in contact lenses

But of course millions of people wear contact lenses every day, all day, perfectly comfortably. Opticians know how to make them exactly the right size and shape for your eyeballs. They supply you with special lubricant to supplement your tears. They teach you the best techniques for insertion and removal and cleaning. And it's natural that, when you first start to use lenses, it takes some time to get used to them.

What's really going on during the acclimatization period is that, as well as mastering the techniques and making them part of your daily routine, like brushing your teeth (something you do without thinking), you are also teaching your brain to make an exception for these special objects. They are not potentially harmful invaders. They are wonderfully useful adjuncts to your powers of vision.

Most people find that with a little practice and a little patience, they soon get used to their lenses. But some people find it harder to get over the protective reaction that makes them instinctively recoil from the very idea of putting anything in their eyes, and struggle to actually do so.

And this is where hypnosis can really help.
