Can't Find Contact Lens In Eye
I'm not sure if I've been able rt o remove my contact lens from my left eye. I did not feel it come out but I can't see it in my eye?
Under the lid?: A rigid gas permeable contact lens can pop out more easily than a soft contact lens, but both can migrate under the upper lid. Try copious irrigation with a bottle of saline under the upper lid while tugging on the eyelashes to open up the superior conjunctival fornix. If it comes out, you'll know that is where it was. ...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
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
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
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
No: Wearing a soft contact lens won't damage your eye but it certainly will be blurry and the lens will be uncomfortable and move around a lot with each blink. ...Read more
You cant: Sorry. Read the box from which it came. ...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
See yout doctor: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. ...Read more
Systematic method: The contact prescription will label the correct eye. Contact lens cases also label the correct eye, so you need to follow a systematic method in order to distinguish r and l. ...Read more
Possibly: It would not be safe for your eyes though! You need to ensure proper fit, so they do not damage your eyes or lead to infections. ...Read more
Patience: The most common thing is for the lens to fold over itself, and get stuck in the upper, outer recess. Try with your thumb to lift up the outer upper lid while you look down and in - and hold this for 15 seconds. If you have tried hard in general to remove it, and fail, it might be already out and your feeling of the lens is due to eye irritation. Have a friend look in strong light at that point. ...Read more

Something flew in my eye yesterday and now the contact lens in that eye is blurry. What can I do to make it not blurry?
Take out lens: I assume you are wearing some type of long wearing lens. When something flew into the eye and you could feel it, then flushing the eye with water or contact lens wetting solution would be the first step. If the material was still felt, then the lens should be removed. Now that blur has set in, remove the lens and if the eye is red, see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
