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.

Is it OK to Wear Contact Lenses?

Rest assured that #ContactLens wear is safe during the #COVID19 pandemic as long as proper hand washing and disinfecting procedures are followed

– Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before touching your eyes, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
– If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
– Contact lenses should be either disposed daily or disinfected daily.
– Disinfect your glasses, especially if you remove and put them on multiple times in a day

Be extremely careful. Now is not the time to get an eye infection!

New year, new GREEN choices!! 🌎 Personally, I always felt very conflicted between the hygiene benefits of daily disposables vs. the increased waste, so I’m very excited to announce that we now participate in a contact lens recycling program through Bausch + Lomb! Collect a bag of your blister packs and the contacts themselves (make sure they’re dry), and come drop it off at our office! The boxes can go through regular paper recycling.
