Can Contact Lens Slip Back And Be Stuck Behind The Eyes
No: The conjunctiva (the membrane that covers the eye) forms a continuous layer with the inside of the eyelid called the septum. This makes it impossible for a foreign object to get behind the septum to the back of the eyeball. ...Read more

Impossible: Contact lenses cannot get behind eyes. They can get stuck under the upper lid. Try flushing your eyes with a stream of water or eye wash. If this fails to dislodge the contact lens, then see your eye doctor. ...Read more
No: The membrane that covered the white part of the eye extends up under the eyelid and then returns down as the inner lining of the eyelid. As such it creates a pocket up under the lid that will prevent a contact lens from going behind your eye. A contact lens can get stuck up in this fornix but it can be removed. ...Read more

I was practicing in a class where we used sticks. My partner accidentally poked me in my eye with the butt end of his stick. I'm not sure if my eye was closed or not, but my contact lens popped out. My eye isn't red but there is pressure in the back.
My eye is red and has a white cloudy spot in the iris. Contact lens out for 2 days but had to put them back in today. No pain just fuzzy spot looking?
Got shampoo in my eye and took the contact lens out. Put it in solution and back in my eye. Two days later, my eye is red and feels bruised. Problem?
C.L.O.W.S.: Contact lens over-wear syndrome is the generic term for a number of conditions, including sterile limbal infiltrates, limbus neovascularization and even upper lid problems such as giant papillary conjunctivitis. Take out your contacts, wear glasses instead, and see your eye doctor for an urgent care evaluation. Decrease your wearing time and/or switch to rigid gas permeable lenses. ...Read more
No: No path for displaced contact lens to get behind the eyeball, but common for it to get trapped and folded underneath the upper eyelid. An ophthalmologist can apply a mild stain drop called flourescein and easily see the cl and remove it. Often the patient thinks the lens is still in the eye when it has already fallen out. ...Read more

Yes and no: Contact lenses certainly help you see better without having to wear glasses. But you must take care to clean your lenses regularly. And remember, the eye was not meant to have anything touching it. Over time, your eyes may become dry, irritated and develop allergies to the contacts. There is also a risk for severe eye infection if proper hygiene is not practiced. ...Read more
Solution not lens: Generally, we see that patients who have contact lens allergies are sensitive not to the lens but to the disinfection solutions. We usually attempt to transition patients to a hydrogen peroxide system and if necessary to daily disposables. Addressing environmental allergens is very important as well. ...Read more
See below: To get the contact lens into your eye, you must pull hard on your eyelids to make a big opening. And do not release the lids until the contact is on your eye. Then slowly release the lower then upper lid, then blink. ...Read more
What kind of lens?: Although there are extended wear contact lenses, I recommended daily removal before sleeping. Tears provide anti-infective compounds and enzymes which are in short supply during sleep when tear production drops. This puts the eye at greater risk for potentially sight threatening infections. ...Read more
Clear care: Try different ones, but I think this one is best since the hydrogen peroxide system removes deposits and there are no preservatives once it is neutralized. ...Read more

I put in my contact lens just now and I can't find it in my eyes. Should I keep blinking to see if it comes out?
Probably is out: Usually when a person cannot find a lens in their eye it already fell out. The lens cannot go behind your eye, though sometimes a piece of a torn lens could be trapped behind the eyelid. A soft contact lens is too large to usually stay on the eye surface and not be on the cornea. So, you could look around to see if you can find it. If the vision is blurred, there is probably no lens there. ...Read more
How long can I have my contact lens in my eyes? They're aerated and presently I've been wearing mine for about 1month. I've never taken them off.
There isn't one: Don't think there is one. Some may be worse than others but acuvue oasys and coopervision biofinity are pretty good. A good fit is crucial though and depends on the curvature of the lens. These vary from lens to lens. I suppose the best one would technically be a scleral lens which is a hard lens. They also have the dual purpose of lubricatong the eye. Most people aren't that dry though. ...Read more

Not a good idea: Redness is a sign of a problem. As a general rule, anytime your eye is red, the first that you need to do is to take the contact lens out. There is strong likelihood that the redness is due to the contacts and keeping it in will only aggravate the situation (although your eye may feel better wearing the contacts). See your eye md for an evaluation. ...Read more
