Do you have any eye pain?
What have you tried specifically?
no pain just irritation, i feel like there is something over my eye like a film or something. i have just tried to see if my contact is stuck because I do not feel it or see it and assumed it fell out.
I have only put eye drops in and flushed my eye with water
Did you sleep in your contacts?
Is the vision blurry at the distance and up close?
no i do not
a little blurry with distance
is it possible for a contact to break and for part of it to be stuck or part of it to attach to my eye?
If you are certain that you have taken the contact lens out, then I recommend you continue to use artificial tears.
It is possible for the contact to tear.
but it would cause significant irritation and red eyes.
It can also be stuck under the eyelid as well.
An ophthalmologist should be able to look to see if the contact lens is still present using high magnification.
He would also be able to look under the eyelids as well.
is it dangerous if i wait until tomorrow to try to see an eye doctor? can i sleep and go in the morning or do u suggest going now to a 24 hour facility ?
i feel no pain something just feels a little irritated and awkward when i blink
If you can try to rinse out the eye as best you can.
You should be able to wait until the morning.
Until you see an ophthalmologist.
If you develop pain, worsening vision then you should considered getting examined sooner.
if something is stuck to my eye, what will they do to remove it? will it be painful?
It can be removed with fine tweezers.
It should not be painful because the eye can be numbed with eye drops.
Do you have any other questions for me?
is there usually a film over the part of the eye the contact goes on
i dont know if that makes sense
but it feels like something is over it
There is not a film. But if the contact lens is stuck underneath the eyelid, it can cause the tears to be thickened and feel like a film.
ok thank you so much that was my last question
