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.

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.

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.

There is also a risk for severe eye infection if proper hygiene is not practiced. ...Read more
Depends, but mostly: On factors such as cleanliness, duration and frequency of use. Infection and allergic conjunctivitis can occur and are more likely if the lenses aren't taken care of properly or are over worn. So, they can be bad for the eyes if an infection develops.

See your eye md for an evaluation. ...Read more

Depends on how dry: It depends on how dry your eyes are. Some people get dry eyes with any contact lenses, while some people never experience dry eyes with their lenses.
