In brief: See the following

Most contact lenses get stuck in the upper, outer quadrant of the space between the lid and the conjunctiva.
The rest of the eye spaces are too small except for hard lenses or broken lenses. The get the lens out of the usual spot, hold the upper lid up and out, and look down and in for about 14 seconds. This will stretch the conjunctiva and push out the lens.
