The Possibility Of Contact Lenses Entering The Eye Chamber?
Hello, I want to tell you that yesterday morning I was going to wear contact lenses but it turns out that in my lens case there is only 1 lens, which is on the right, I thought it fell I looked for it but it wasn’t there then I thought whether I forgot to remove my lens on the left and it’s in in my eyes.. i remember the last time i used contact lenses 3 days ago.. but i don’t feel any lump or irritation etc. So my question is, for example, if my contact lenses have been in my eyes for 3 days, is it possible? So far nothing has happened, but I am paranoid and scared. thank you
Most people who wear contact lenses have concerns that their contact lenses will be "swallowed" into the eye socket. In fact, to understand this problem, you have to understand a little about eye anatomy. Even though the human eye is spherical, it cannot rotate 360 degrees, because on the sides of the eye, the eyeball is maintained by the muscle tissue around the eye. This muscle also limits the space between the eyes so that certain foreign objects are not included, including in this case contact lenses. Thus, it is almost impossible for contact lenses to be swallowed into your eye socket. The most likely is that the contact lens fell off without you noticing. However, if you have any doubts, you can always check with your doctor. Here we attach an article about the risks of contact lenses. Hope it is useful.
