Can a Contact Lens Get Stuck Behind Your Eye?

Dr. Oz has the answer.



By Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr Oz The Good Life

Q: Can a contact lens get stuck behind your eye?


Oz says: No; your eyes just aren't made that way. "A membrane called the conjunctiva prevents anything on the surface of your eye from getting behind your eyeball," says Andrea Thau, president of the American Optometric Association.

But any wandering lens calls for a rescue mission. Squirt some saline solution in your eye and see if that flushes it out. If not, place a mirror flat on a countertop or table, lift your upper eyelid, and look down at your reflection—that should make the contact easier to find and fish out. A lens that gets displaced won't damage your eye as long as you remove it with clean hands (and no sharp fingernails, please!).
