There are many myths about contact lenses. Here are some of the common ones set straight!

A contact lens can get lost behind your eye

That’s physically impossible. There is a membrane covering your eye that connects inside your eyelids, preventing anything from getting behind your eye, including a contact lens.

Contact lenses can scratch you eye

Contact lens related problems can occur, however this is very unlikely. Most common eye-health issues are related to poorly fitted lenses or not following your Eye Care Professionals recommended lens wear schedule.

If you experience any unusual eye discomfort or changes to your vision while wearing your contact lenses, remove them immediately and call your Eye Care Professional.

Contact lenses can get stuck to your eye

Contact lenses cannot get stuck to your eye if you follow your Eye Care Professional’s advice about wear, care, and removal. Remember to remove your lenses before sleep, and if they feel dry try some rewetting drops before removing them.
