Can contact lenses fall out?

Contact lenses are particularly stable unless you rub your eye vigorously.

Under certain circumstances, your lenses can dislodge from the eye. An example may be in windy conditions your eyes may water, causing your lens to move of the eye slightly and may even fall out.

If you are worried that your lens has disappeared in your eye it is always best to arrange an appointment with your optician so that they can check the health of your eye and if the lens is still in your eye. However, your contact lens cannot get lost in your eye.
