The lens is placed on the rubber sucker without being oriented one way or the other, and the sucker, likewise without being oriented one way or the other, is approached to the eye and the lens inserted. But when the contact lens has different scleral curvatures in different directions and/or an oval corneal section centered or decentered in the scleral circumference, the process of insertion becomes considerably more difficult ; for it is essential that such a lens be inserted so as to have its parts definitely related to parts of the eye.
