One of my contact lenses got lost in my eye. I rinsed my eye out and did not manage to find it. I don't know what to do. Help please?
Lost contact. Sometimes you can flip your own eyelid and the lens will pop-out. Do not keep trying to remove it as you normally remove a contact because if the contact is not present you can scratch your cornea. Lastly it is a common misconcepcion to believe that the lens can get lost behind the eye because the surface skin or conjunctiva of the eye will not allow this to happen so don't panic.
Soft or rigid lens? Can be lost under the lids (in the fornices)--if can't find it, then have an ophthalmologist look for it.
Lost contact. Often a lost soft contact lens will migrate under the upper lid. Since you have irrigated your eye, the contact may have washed out. I have also seen patient's accidentally place a new contact upon an old contact as well. If you still feel it's presence or your eye is uncomfortable, go to an ophthalmologist, who will evert or flip your lid to remove it for you.
