I ACCIDENTALLY Wore TWO Rigid Contact Lenses In My Right Eye For 7-Days! Yikes!

My right eye. Click to ENLARGE and get scared.

The 3rd lens! The other two in my eyes when picture taken.

This was SCARY and it has rattled I.

I lost my right contact lens on October 27. It was in my eye and then it went missing. Yes, I knew it could still be in my eye. I checked — multiple times, in the mirror and with my fingers pressing against my eye.

I am NO STRANGER to contact lenses. I have been wearing rigid contact lenses for 51-years! I have been wearing contact lenses for longer than my optician has been alive.

51-years is a long time. I do know how to wear and take care of contact lenses.

In those 51-years this was BUT the 2nd contact I had LOST! Of I drop them plenty. But, I always manage to find them.

So, losing this really upset I.

I had plenty of spares. Put a spare in. VERY comfortable.

7-days, NOT a single problem. No discomfort. No irritation. Could see FINE.

So, this must be the ultimate proof that I really am an insensitive jerk that feels nothing — not even two RIGID contact lenses in my right eye (and the human cornea is rich in nerve endings).

This morning I woke up and it felt like I had an eyelash in my eye.

But, I also noticed that I could read the TV banners fine with my right eye. That puzzled me.

Went to wash my eye to get the eyelash out. Could see a reflection.

Checked my contact lens case. There were two lenses in them. So, I had taken two out last night.

Yes, there was ANOTHER in there.

This scares me. A full week. I didn’t feel it.
