How Does Interocular Lens Affect Eye Color
It doesn't: The eye color is determined by the pigmentation of the iris. The intraocular lens is placed behind the iris after removal of the cloudy lens (cataract). When you are looking at (or through) the lens, you are seeing the pupil of the eye, which appears dark. Some types of lens implants can cause some reflections or glistening appearance, but they do not change eye color. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

Possibly dry eyes: Some contact lenses are not as comfortable as others. On the other hand, some people cannot tolerate contact lenses on their eyes for prolonged periods of time. Your eyes may be more sensitive to contacts, or have a tendancy to dry eyes. Daily contacts may be more comfortable for you to wear in this case, and using an artificial tear may help as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lubrication: Try hydrating the contact lenses with re-wetting drops before attempting to remove them.

Try--: Make sure you have been evaluated for dry eye. If the ocular surface is not moist enough it will never accept a contact lens. Make sure the lenses are fit correctly. If you are having a problem with one provider, see another. Almost everyone can be fit successfully. Gas permeable contacts are a last resort as is Lasik. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
