Try wearing them: Unless there substantial difference between the curvature and power of the two lenses trying on the lenses and wearing them either way may help you decide which one is more comfortable on which eye. It is doubtful that wearing the rght lens on the left eye or vice versa will result in any injury and the user can generally tell which configuration is more comfortable and provides optimal vision.

Ease of use, comfort: Hard gas permeable lenses correct severe astigmatism and are more resistant to infection. Soft lenses are almost 50% water and are easier to get used to. Their sponge-like structure allows bacteria to stick to their surface and may permit ocular infection to occur with severe vision loss.
