How to: open circle lens vials

When I got my first pair of circle lenses, I just stared at the bottle 'cause it was so cute - and I didn't know how to open it.

Behold, a "how to" post! This post will tell you how to safely open circle lens vials/bottles. Some users have gotten hurt from the aluminum part, so be careful when you're opening it!

1. Find the little arrow (it's on the metal part, pointing upwards)
I circled the arrows on the picture below. 

2. Stick a tweezer under the white cap part, and wrestle the white cap off. It does take a little bit of effort to get it off. 
Just don't go crazy and end up cutting yourself with the aluminium!

3. It should look like this.
If the cap has a little bit of metal stuck on to it [1st picture], you can just slowly wiggle the cap off to the side, like you're slowly peeling an orange or something. The alumium should peel off with the cap.

If you just pulled off the cap [no metal attached to it, 2nd picture], just stick a tweezer under the metal and peel it off slowly.

4. Tadah! It looks like this!
Lookit all that metaaaaal. 

5. So, you've got the squishy white topper still on.
This part is really easy with no worries attached. Just pop it off.

6. Remember to prepare your lenses before wear.
Soak them in contact solution for a minimum of 8 hours. Do not wear your lenses right after taking them from the bottle. Your eyes will burn from the solution.

Take care of your eyes, you've only got 1 pair! ^__^


  1. This was super easy to Follow! Thank you for making this. But what company did you get your lenses from?

  2. Hello. If only I read this post of yours months ago, I should have avoided having a broken nail when I tried to pry open the bottle on lens I bought. I did so using only my bare nails since didn't know what else to do @__@ I didn't look up on "how to do" related stuff since I was way too eager to try using my lens. >_< Thank you for visiting my blog already added you to my GFC/Bloglovin hope you can do the same & for the lovely compliment you left. I really appreciate it. ^_^

  3. I am a big contact lenses wearer, I love to wear different shades in contacts. The way you have shown here is prefect to open the bottle.
