Customer Question

I have a contact stuck in the upper part of my eye and cannot reach it. In fact I can't even see it since my eyes are deep set. How can I remove the contact. Will it cause problems if I just let it be?

Hello,

 

You can try closing your eye and massaging the contact lens down again. You need to get it out and not try to sleep with it in (especially for 2 nights until Monday).

I massaged my eye for the 2 hours that I was waiting for a reply. By the time I received the reply, I had already worked it into a position that I was able to pull it out. The reply came after I no longer needed it. Thanks anyway.
