Help! My Contact Lens Is Lost Behind My Eye!

Eye illustrationThere is no reason to panic. A contact lens cannot actually move behind the eye. If a soft lens (or part of it) has gotten stuck under the eyelid and disappeared, it is most likely stuck under your upper eyelid and will usually come out by itself. This might take a few hours, or even days, but the condition should not be particularly dangerous.

While you should contact a professional if you feel great discomfort or the eye is very red, you can try to help the lens come out yourself.

You might want to consider using extra breathing lenses. Moisture reduces friction and makes it less likely that the problem occurs again in the future.
