Help a contact first timer?

I bought some lenses from Pinky Paradise, and am having a heck of a time getting them in. I've read plenty of tutorials, so I get the basic idea, but no matter what i try, the lens refuses to stick in my eye. I tried wetting my finger, I tried drying my finger. I tried wetting my eyes with the eyedrops. I can touch the lens to my eye, but it still flips or sticks on my finger. Any tips?

I would go in to your eye doctor and have a lens fitting. They'll teach you how to put lenses in and remove them PROPERLY and SAFELY. And trust me, your eyes are worth it!

Everyone's eyes are different, so the process may be a little different for everyone. An eye doctor will be able to work with you to figure out what you may be doing wrong or why the lenses may not be cooperating.

I think when my contacts flip, it's because I've gotten too much finger contact going with the eyeball. But I still take like 10 minutes to get my contacts in, so you would definitely benefit from more experienced contacts wearers (and contact experts aka an optomistrist).
