Alright, this morning before school, I put my contacts in. I put a little lubricant on each one before I place them in my eye, so they sitck so they are easier to get in my eye. Well today I didn't realize, that I put too much lubricant on the lense, and when I put it in my eye, it fell out with a large drip of lubricant. I didn't realize it at the time. When I got home I saw it on the floor, and picked it up.. it was folded 3 times, and it felt like hard plastic. I put it back in the conact lense case, and 10 mins later, it was back to normal. My main question is, should I put it back in my eye? Is it safe? It feels fine against my fingers, no raised surfaces or indents, and no visible tears. So would it be ok to put it back in my eye?

I wouldn't, especially after it sat on the floor for such a long time. It probab;y has something on it or has a really small tear and will irritate the hell out of your eye.

Your saying you only had one contact in all day and didn't realize it?

But no, i would not use it. Do you get more than one contact for each eye at a time? From my eye doctor i get a supply for a few months, i have the kind that you throw out after 30 days though. If you do, just get another one out.

I tried contacts and finally just gave up. I couldn’t get over myself when it came to putting something in my eye…so guess glasses will have to do until I can afford to give up my left nut for laser surgery since my insurance classifies this procedure as “cosmetic”. :rolleyes:

I would not put it in your eye again. I made the same mistake once and it was a very bad one. I had a horrible headache for like a week afterwards.

And I always come up with some way to get soap in my eyes (Think God I don't use contacts anymore) and give myself a horrible headache and not be able to open my eye.

Bottom line is that things are best kept out of your eye!

Contacts aren't that hard to get used to, hell I've been wearing the pair I have in my eyes right now for almost a month straight without taking them out and they're Acuvue 2. Acuvue 2 isn't meant for that kind of thing yet my eyesight doesn't seem to have been damaged by them nor have I gotten a serious eye infection.
