Can I Lose a Contact Lens
in My Eye?
No, it is not possible. While contact lenses can move around on the surface of the eye, it is impossible for the contact lens to disappear completely behind the eye. Many times when the wearer does not see the contact lens on the surface of the eye, it has attached to the inside of the eyelid or fallen out.
If your lens is not visible, close your eye and very gently rub your eyelid. In most cases, this will locate the lens so it can be removed.
If you are having trouble removing your contact lens, you can visit your eye doctor for assistance in locating and removing the lens. Please be sure to have someone drive you to the optometrist's office if you are having difficulty seeing.
