Contact Lens Stuck In Your Eye?

What should you do if you have a contact lens stuck in your eye?

Watch this video and then follow the steps to learn what to do.

  • Don’t Panic. Contact lenses rarely get stuck
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, and do not dry them
  • Moisten your eye with saline solution
  • Gently massage your eyelids for a minute
  • Flip the upper and lower eyelids
  • Try to place the new lens in, moving it around to dislodge the old one
  • If none of these steps work, contact the eye doctor near you for an emergency visit 630-581-2151

We appreciate the trust you have in our practice, and please know that we take the health of your families very seriously.

We have been following the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak, and have been taking guidance from the CDC, AMA, and IOA regarding the best practice and management of patient care in this rapidly changing situation.
