Hi doctor,

I put in my contact lenses in the morning and everything is fine. But, a few hours later, my left contact moves and slides. When I take it out, my eye hurts for a while. Why?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Sometimes, the cornea may be steeper or flatter than usual. The base curve of the lens may not match your cornea's base curve. You can get it measured from any optometrist.
  • Otherwise, try using the preservative free lubricating drop to take care of any associated dryness that may cause the lens to pop out.
  • I suggest Refresh Ezee (Sodium Carboxymethyl cellulose). Consult your local optometrist or ophthalmologist and discuss the above.
