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.

Very different: Eyeglass lenses can either magnify, minify (make images smaller) or correct astigmatism. Magnifying glasses are used in readers and prescription lenses for farsighted and presbyopic people, while minifying lenses are used for those with nearsightedness. Also, there can be magnification or minification with astigmatism correction at the same time. Glasses are built specifically for your vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Worse case scenario, you have the astigmatism added to your prescription in steps over a years time. This is costly though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not easily: Scratches in polycarbonate lenses involve the removal of plastic in the scratch. To smooth it out you would need to grind this away which would alter the power of the lense and might induce some distortion. Check with an optical shop to see if some correction is possible or replacement is needed. ...Read more

Not particularly: We have plenty of experience with ingested foreign material from dealing with toddlers.

Can happen: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
