Don't worry ... It'll pop right back out to the front of the eyeball again. It just might take an hour or so ...

Once one of mine traveled to the back of my eyeball while I was at work. I thought it had fallen out of my eye, and I had the entire office looking for it. After about a half an hour of searching, I gave up, called my eye doctor's office, and ordered a new lens. Sure enough, after about another hour and after I'd relaxed for awhile -- presto! I felt something moving around in my eye, and there it was. After a little wrangling, it slid right back onto my cornea where it belonged. The receptionist at the eye doctor's office got a kick out of it when I called to cancel the order.

I think I'm gonna get me one of those little suction cups.

I balance mine on the tip of my finger then I pop it right in (no pulling, or tugging of my lids). It takes a while to find a technique that works for you but it'll happen. I've been wearing lenses for about 10 years (since i was a teenager). I realized after a while you really have to be careful with your lids because all that tugging will probably lead to wrinkles or bags under your eyes. Hasnt been proven but I would think so....

I don't wear glasses or contacts... so forgive me if this is a little off-topic. Hopefully I won't ever need glasses ? But being the only biological family member that doesn't need them up until now, I fear I may be living on borrowed time.

My question is more directed to anyone that may have tried (or been thinking about trying) the contact lenses they have out, with no prescription necessary, strictly for cosmetic appearance? You can virtually change the color of your eyes to fit your fancy... sky blue, violet, hazel with gold highlights, bright green... I think even with reading the how-to in this thread for applying contacts, I would be too scared still to poke myself in the eye! ..but it's a thought that I can't get out of my mind.

anyone?

Eventually, you'll lose the 'blink reflex' (when putting your finger near the eye area) after you do it often enough.

I wore RGP's (Rigid Gas Permeables) for around four years and finally, had enough of them. Whenever I would get stuff stuck in my eye (like dust), I was literally blinded and it was painful...so I went the way of soft lenses. Best decision ever!

I guess Lasik is next, but we'll see...

Fiddlekitten, just make sure you get them from a opthalmologist and not just some store. I've heard they may not be sterile and you can get eye infections.

I wear the gas perm lens and thought I was going to have to give them up, my eyes were burning really bad, my doctor thought it was the solution I was using, Walmart brand, so I switched to Optimum by Lobob and they feel great again, you can get it at CVS, of course it cost twice as much, but it's great.
