    If the contact lenses are dislodging by themselves it usually means your eyes are a little dry. Take them out, soak them them in solution for a while and then replace them. If it continues to happen see your optician and ask if they can prescribe a drop to stop your eyes drying out. I wouldn't just use any old drops because you can never be too sure, especially when it comes to your eyes. I found my eyes were getting quite dry once, picked up some drops that reacted badly to my lenses and I got an ulcer at the back of my eye. It was horrible! :cry: xx

    I have the continuos wear lenses and the same thing has happend to me a couple of times. Think Mrs B is right, my eyes do usually feel quite dry when it happens. I usually just clean it and pop it back in again. I got some drops from Tesco which are contact lens friendly and they really help if my eyes are feeling dry and sore.

    i just have lenses i have to take in and out daily but i know the feeling you describe,
    i see it as my eyes giving me a sign that it's time to take them out and give them a break from it.

    do you have glasses as a back-up?

    Usually if the contact lenses are comingout by themselves it means your eyes are dry. I don't sleep with my lenses in but when I do, I find that I have the same problem. Maybe try taking them out at night? I know they're continuous wear but I don't think it's too good to keep the lenses in all the time. Your eyes need a break.

    Yeah, just soak um. They feel fresh and new after wards. I used a hard lens, and I loved them.
