I Think My Contact Is Stuck In My Eye
I have had a contact lense stuck in my eye for about a week. I cant see it under my lid. Is it dangerous?
New or old: A single floater is not a serious issue, especially if it has been around for a while. If a new floater develops, it would be prudent to consult your eye doctor promptly. ...Read more
Stuck contact lens: Try putting your contact lens drops in the eye. This may help rehydrate your contact lens to help get it unstuck from your eye surface. It also may help to have someone else you know who also wears contacts to try to remove it for you. It's important to make sure that the contact is still on your eye and hasn't already just fallen out. This is quite common. ...Read more
Yesterday my contact got ripped in my eye and when I was taking it out I hurt my eye and today I wore new contacts but my eye still hurts is that okay?
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
Overwear condition: The contact lens interferes with the protective tear flow and the oxygen flow to the front of the eye. If you leave it in too long you might have changes in the surface skin from overwear, but there is also a risk of infection. You might see a white dot on the cornea in that case. If the eye is very red, vision is changed or there is a discharge, see your ophthalmologist without delay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Well: Jerry glasses wouldn't cause this problem unless they're bumping against your eyelid.

When i put my right eye contact in this morning, my eye got all red and really hurt. Could this be an infection?
My eye is really red and irritated. It hurts to open my eye and I can't put my contact in. What can I do?
Leave contact out: it is possible that you may have either scratched her eye, used the contact lenses too long and exhausted your eye, or possibly have an infection. Leave the contact lens out. Use glasses in the interim. Use preservative free artificial tears frequently every 1 to 2 hours in the eye to see if there's any improvement of your symptoms. If pain persists, or vision worsening need to be seen promptly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I got smacked in the face by accident and I think my contact fell out. How would I know for sure? My eye was irritated and watery when it happened
Check vision: Compare the vision in the non-smacked eye with that in the one that got hit. If the eye that got hit is otherwise normal (no redness, no internal bleeding, no structural damage) then the vision will be normal if the lens is in place and blurred if not. However it might be blurred if there is damage. If the blur persists see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
I closed my eyes & put both of my hands on my eyelids. I noticed that my left eye pokes further out than my right eye. Not sure if new/old. Concerned?
Notice when I have my contacts in I see a lot clearer in my left eye than my right eye. Shouldn't they be equal?
Vision with contacts: It depends! certainly most contact lens fittings are done to perfect equal vision in each eye. However, the over 40 set may elect monovision, one eye set for distance and the other for near so as to avoid the need for reading glasses! if the vision cannot be corrected to achieve equal sight in both eyes, there could be a defect in the contact lens or the eye itself. Best to have this checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
