My contact lenses are missing, but I don't remember them coming out of my eye.Is it stuck somewhere in my eye?

My contact lenses are missing, but I don't remember them coming out of my eye.Is it stuck somewhere in my eye?

Unlikely: Although people can occasionally have their contact lenses roll up and stay under their upper or lower eyelids, the lenses rarely stay there. It is very uncomfortable and you would feel it.

Contact your neurologist and see ASAP, but ER visit if this recurs or worsens. ...Read more
