how to tell if contacts are inside out while wearing them?

0 votes

Can you see correctly when wearing contacts inside out?
I have two different prescriptions for contacts. One is a very thick contact and is easy to tell if it is inside out, the other one is very thin and flimsy and it is almost impossible to tell if it is inside out. I put it on the way i think it should go, and my vision is fine, but it irritates me some days and not others. Would I still be able to see correctly with it inside out?

This is so true, but sometimes, it's nearly impossible to tell just by looking. But the sword-in-the-eyes feeling is a definite way to tell.

It can be challenging to tell if a soft contact lens is inside-out. For one thing, you need that contact lens to see in the first place, so being told to look closely at a small, clear, curved object to determine which way it’s facing is a particularly cruel irony. We get it. We’re sorry. We’re here to help.

First, if you’re already wearing your contact lens…
If you think your contact is in inside out, know that it won’t do any damage to your eye. Whew. However, it won’t fit as well on your eye’s surface. It will likely feel like it moves around more, is uncomfortable, or like you have something stuck in your eye. Other times it’s subtle and may only start to bother you after the lens has been in for a few hours. HEADS UP: an inside-out lens is also more likely to pop out of your eye.

Interestingly, in most cases an inside out lens will not make your vision significantly more blurry.
