Why can a lost contact lens in eye?

Contact lenses designed so that when putting them on they fall exactly in the middle of the eyeball, just at the level of the pupil. When a person moves the eyes, closes the lids, blinks, and performs other movements, the lenses are tight in the right place and provide good vision in any situation, so they are easier to use than points that can fall, break, shift. With proper use of contact lenses, they can't get lost in the eye.

But since the eyeball has a spherical shape, it is not excluded the possibility that the lens will shift over the eyelid. This may be the case, if "help" her do it: for example, strongly rubbing the eyes or swimming with open eyes under water. For example, if you wear the wrong lens – the wrong side, then the person will experience discomfort, eyes begin to itch, tear. Not all at once understand what it is, and sometimes begin to RUB the eyes, in this case, the lens may move under the eyelid or eyelashes.

Tiniest speck of dust or scratch on the fine material can also be a cause of discomfort.

Another reason for the loss of the lens in the eye is incorrectly matched diameters. The selection shall be conducted by a specialist who will perform all the necessary measurements, including the radius of curvature and diameter. The right lenses at once lie properly on the eyeball, and is too large or small cups are shifted during blinking or eye movement.

What to do if you lost the lens in your eye?

If you decide to remove the lens and found that I can't find her in the eye, first make sure it really shifted. Lenses transparent and thin they are almost invisible on the eyeball, they are difficult to see. Usually shoot them with a slight movement of two fingers directed from the edges to the center if the Cup can not be separated, the impression is that the lens just yet. In fact, sometimes the lens is difficult to remove if it is insufficiently moisturized. This method of vision correction dry eyes, so ophthalmologists are advised to use special drops. Drop your eyes and try to remove the lens again.

Make sure that the lens was lost, committed and vision: if it is deteriorated, then it doesn't cover the pupil.

If you are convinced that the lenses do not there, try to get her out from under a century, with repeated instillation – liquid will help the edge to "swim" out, then you need to grab it and pull. It is easier to do yourself, and ask the other person.

If you pull out the lens, consult an ophthalmologist. It is advisable to do this as quickly as possible, the more the lens remains in the eye, the more likely the development of conjunctivitis.
