Myth: Contact lens can go behind my eye.

What do you think?

Now, you just got no choice but to study and understand the eye anatomy first. Just a simple one!

From the diagram, one can easily know and understand that contact lens can never go behind your eye.

The conjunctiva is the thin, transparent tissue, that covers the outer surface of the eye. Thus, the red arrows on the diagram, indicate that the conjuntiva is there, to not allow contact lens to go behind the eye.

Sometimes, contact lens might dislocate and get folded and it hid between the conjuntiva (red arrow location). Please do not get panic. You can close your eyes, place your finger on the eyelid and gently push it down. Otherwise, refer to your eyecare practitioner for assistance.
