Problem with Contact Lenses that Move on the Eyes, What to Do?


Problem with Contact Lenses that Move on the Eyes, What to Do?

First of all, it is important to know that the surface of the eye is covered with a thin layer of tear fluid that protects the eyes by moisturizing, lubricating and absorbing, in order to evacuate foreign bodies, fine particles such as dust or pollen more quickly. It also forms a shield against certain gases, heat and pollution, and above all, it allows oxygenation of the eye. Contact lenses are not directly attached to the cornea except for those suffering from severe dry eye. In this case, it is strongly advised not to wear them as they can cause serious complications and especially eye infections that can cause you to lose your sight in the most extreme cases.

Contact lenses float at your iris and move slightly with body vibrations when you make sudden, energetic movements, exercise or blink.

However, what is not normal is that contact lenses move a lot and are off-centre to the point of causing discomfort, discomfort, decreased visual acuity or irritation due to friction. To avoid this type of problem, you should first of all not insist on wearing this contact lens model, whether it is soft or rigid, in order to avoid any risk to your eye health. Then, we recommend that you consult an ophthalmologist so that he or she can examine and advise you on the basic curve (BC) that best suits you and, above all, the diameter that best suits you. If this assessment is done correctly, the problem of contact lenses moving on the eye will disappear and you will feel much more comfortable and confident.

Sometimes contact lenses can be so mobile that they slip under the moving eyelid, so there’s no need to worry about it, as it doesn’t pose any danger to your eyes. In such cases, hands should already be thoroughly washed and dried to avoid eye infection. Then, you will sit in front of a mirror to see your eye and massage the upper eyelid lightly by moving up and down to slide the lens. If you feel that it is well glued, don’t force it. Lubricate your eyes and eyelids by using a wetting “artificial tears” eyewash, gently massaging your eyelid again so that the liquid will relax and impregnate the jammed contact lens. Try sliding it again and as soon as you see a corner sticking out, try to pull it down with the tip of a finger or a cotton swab. But the ideal would be a Korean tweezer “Meruru” which has a suction cup that will allow you to gently and easily grasp your contact lens. Finally, if, despite all these precautions and handling, you are unable to recover your contact lens, consult an ophthalmologist or go to the emergency room immediately.

On the other hand, all the stories that we sometimes hear or read about contact lenses passing behind our eyes are legends, technically impossible given the morphology of the eye and its orbit.

If you are wearing soft contact lenses of standard colour, standard type and usually with a diameter of about 14 minutes, such as the ones we offer on our Solution-Lentils. com shop, which will only embellish your eyes and not correct a visual defect, don’t hesitate to test our circle contact lenses (Korean lenses) which do up to 16 minutes to check if the problem persists or not.
