What If You Lose A Contact Lens Behind Your Eye

Soft contact lenses
Soft contact lenses are the thin, gel-like lenses which immediately get adjusted to the shape of the cornea when placed in the eye. Soft contact lenses, as the name suggests, are soft and easier to wear. They are comfortable and are kind to the eyes. Soft contact lenses are permeable too. The air can permeate through these lenses, making your eye able to breathe. Soft contact lenses are available for long-term or daily use as well as in different colors.

How to remove a soft contact lens
Removal of soft contact lenses is rather easy. Firstly, wash your hands properly with soap and water. Let them dry and then with the tip of the index finger gently touch the lens. The lens will stick to your finger. Pull the finger back and put the lens in its case. Do not forget to fill the case with fresh solution before putting the lens in it. Repeat the process for the other eye.
