How to tell if Contact Lens is still in Eye

If you wear contact lenses, it’s important to know how to tell if your contact lens is still in your eye. Wearing contact lenses for too long, or over-wearing them, can lead to uncomfortable irritation, dryness, and even infection, so it’s important to know when to take them out.

At Eye Lens, we have some tips to help you know when to take out your contact lenses so you can keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.

1. Look in the Mirror

The first thing you can do to check if your contact lenses are still in your eye is to look in the mirror. If you can still see the contact lens, then it’s still in your eye. If the lens is visible, you can blink a few times to make sure it’s properly positioned.

2. Check the Fit

If you’re not sure if your contact lens is still in your eye, you can check the fit. Place your finger over the contact lens and gently press down on the lens. If it’s still in your eye, you’ll feel a gentle resistance. If you don’t feel any resistance, then your contact lens has likely fallen out of your eye.

3. Check for Dryness

If you’ve been wearing your contact lenses for a while, you can check for dryness. If your contact lenses are dry and uncomfortable, it may be time to change them out.

By following these simple tips, you can quickly and easily tell if your contact lens is still in your eye. This will help ensure that you keep your eyes healthy and comfortable while wearing contact lenses.


Remember, when it comes to contact lenses, it’s important to follow your eye doctor’s instructions and replace your lenses regularly in order to maintain the best vision and eye health. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your eye doctor.
