In brief: Carefully

It can be difficult to insert contact lenses when the opening between the lids, or the eyeball itself, is smaller than average.
Contact lenses do come in differing diameters, and a smaller one may be a bit easier. Usually your eye doctor will have an individual who is experienced at teaching the use of contacts in the office, and they can offer advice about technique of insertion and removal.
