No…you can’t lose your contact lenses BEHIND your eye. We get this question all the time, but rest assured that it is not physically possible for the lens to go there. Most often, a soft contact has become folded and just appears to be lost. It is best to use lubricating drops to make the lens more pliable and easier to move. Be careful not to irritate your eye as you are trying to locate it. And of course, come in to see one of our doctors if you are having too much trouble finding it.
