If bbq heat can melt contact lens?

I suppose

Contact_lens
But getting close enough to the grill and for long enough to melt your contacts is going to do bad things to your corneas even if your contacts are not on.

Dr. Richard Wieder answered:

Why do my contact lens keep ripping?

Contact lenses

Contact_lens
There are several possible reasons why your contacts often tear. The first may be how you're handling them when you remove them. Also, if your eyes tend to be dry, it may help to instill a rewetting drop in your eyes before removing the lenses. In addition, there are certain brands of contacts which tend to tear more easily. Try a different brand of lenses. Talk to your eye doctor about this.

Dr. Andrew Shatz answered:

Are contact lens good for your eyes?

Yes and no

Contact_lens
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.

Are contact lens better than spects?

Sometimes

Contact_lens
Spectacles can usually provide very precise improvement of vision. But some circumstances will improve better with contacts. These include the condition keratoconus, and also diseases of the corneal surface as well as very high degrees of refractive power needs. Contacts of course have their convenience and cosmetic effects although glasses in the right hands can be a fashion statement.

Best contact lens for small eyelids?

Placing Contact lens

Contact_lens
the problem would be getting the contact lenses on the eye. It can be a challenge with narrow eyes or small eye lids. The smaller the Contact lens may make this easier. Soft Contacts all have a big diameter, Rigid gas perm contacts are smaller and may be easier to put in. Check with the doctor that prescribes contacts for you.

Contact lens won't stay in one place?

Refit

Contact_lens
If you contact lens shifts in position or out of position and this is a regular issue, then recheck with the fitting ophthalmologist to get what we would term a tighter lens that will stay better positioned.

How do I remove a stuck contact lens?

See the following

Contact_lens
Most contact lenses get stuck in the upper, outer quadrant of the space between the lid and the conjunctiva. The rest of the eye spaces are too small except for hard lenses or broken lenses. The get the lens out of the usual spot, hold the upper lid up and out, and look down and in for about 14 seconds. This will stretch the conjunctiva and push out the lens.
