There’s what you hear about contacts and then there’s the truth.

MYTH: Contact lenses can get stuck behind my eye

BUSTED: Many people have this concern but it is actually physically impossible. A membrane called the conjunctiva covers the white of your eye and connects to the inside of your eyelid so there’s no chance that a contact lens can go behind your eye.

MYTH: Contact lenses will scratch my eye

BUSTED: Such contact lens related problems can occur but they are rare when they are fit and prescribed by a qualified eye care professional. Proper care, handling and replacement of the prescribed lenses can help reduce the chances of complications.

MYTH: Contact lenses can get stuck in my eye

BUSTED: This is very unlikely. Contact lenses can usually be removed easily using the method your eye doctor recommended. All it takes is practice and patience.
