Was at a party and my right eye's contact folded upon itself, and now I can't find the sucker. Somewhere on my eye

Has anybody here have this happen?

ETA: I know it's there and it didn't just fall out, felt it fold and move around a little, just don't know where it is now.

how did you type this post?

No, never happened to me. Never liked the idea of something touching my eyes.

It migrated to your brain.

<­BR>

Pull up your top eyelid, it is lodged way up at the top. Get the ones with tint.

Glasses. The contact is there, but not.

Have looked up there, but couldn't see it. Figure I'll flush my eye with saline solution.

I had one tear while in my eye and I lost half of it for a couple days. I even put a new lens in the same eye with the piece still floating around somewhere. But, it popped out, and probably blinded me a little bit.

Keep pouring saline solution in there, she might rise to the surface!

Funnneeee. At least I said "on my eye" in the post.

I've come close to doing that a time or two, only I wear RGP lenses.

I've had that happen a couple times. I actually just went and stood in front of the mirror for about a half hour, blinking and rolling my eye around. Eventually a little corner of the contact popped out on one side of the eye, and I just pulled it right out.

Dunno, guess it just fanagles its way around. I hadn't worn contacts in roughly 3 months, so my eyes probably weren't used to them.

It can happen if your eyes are a bit dry and you rub your eye, happened to me a couple times. Gas permeables are a bitch if they get lost on your eye somewhere. I had to use a little suction cup thing to remove those when I was wearing them. No I just wear soft contacts, easy to remove, just pinch 'em and yank
