    At first, you should always wash your hands clean and dry them off. Then pick up the contact lens from the case and place it on the tip of your index finger. Then hold your index finger under bright lighting conditions so that you can see your lens clearly. After that you begin to inspect the contact lens. Look at your contact lens to see whether there is a area that appear rough. If there is, your contact lens is likely to get torn.

    Since this this your first time to wear contact lenses, it is normal if you feel some discomfort. Besides, you shall not wearing the lenses in a long time because you need some time to adapt it. Of course, you shall first check out the lenses if it damaged. Now, you need to take off the lenses and observe the edges of the lenses to ensure that the edges appears smooth without any uneven or jagged areas.
