HELP!! My Contact Lens Is Stuck Behind My Eye

HELP!! My contact lens is stuck behind my eye!! 😫

Step 1) Take a deep breath, relax. Don’t worry, it is not possible for it to roll back there 🙂
Step 2) Get someone to help you
Step 3) Look as far down as you can, and lift your eyelid up out of the way. Have your helper look for the lens. Look up and pull the eyelid down. Or look far to the sides. It should be in one of these positions. This is why you need a helper because if you can see yourself in the mirror, you’re probably not looking far down enough
Step 4) Once you’ve located the lens, have your helper use your eyelid to slide it back into place. If necessary, he/she can use a clean finger to slide it out. Slide along the WHITE PART OF YOUR EYE ONLY. Make sure your helper washes his/her hands!!
Step 5) Once you’ve gotten the lens out, your eye might still feel a bit sore from you poking around at it, so put in lots of moisturizing drops for the rest of the day 😊
Step 6) If the lens you pull out is not complete, try flushing your eye with artificial tears to get the remainder out. If you still feel like something is in there the next day, this may require an emergency visit to make sure there aren’t any pieces left behind.

Do I Need Anti-reflective Coating On My Glasses?

There’s an easy way to avoid this – make sure you get ✨anti-reflective coating ✨ on your next pair! It cuts down reflections from screens and other light sources 👍
The glasses in the first picture are definitely prop lenses with no coating. You should be able to see through to the person’s eyes, like in the second picture. The small green colour fringes are a sign that those lenses do have anti-reflective coating! See if you can notice the difference on your own lenses or on other people! #themoreyouknow
