I am frantic to find the lost lens. I owned my new pair (my first) RGP lenses for about an hour before losing one of them I called eye doctor and going in to see if it is still in my eye.. I am sure it is not. She said not much they could about replacing and I will be on the hook for paying for another. I could just die. I cannot express how upset I am. I have eye infection.., eyes feel awful .. A family celebration was ruined lat night over losing and worrying about the lens and all the changes going on.. not to mention taking in the Keratoconus (KT) diagnosis.. no one has ever heard of this and hard to explain to people.

I discovered a good tip for finding a lost contact ( I think this would only work with a hard lens tho)

How To Find a Lost Contact Lens

First, have to assume you know roughly where you lost the lens.
Take a sheer nylon sock or cut off panty house on pull over vacuum hose ( use nozzle attachment) Secure with rubber band. When you vacuum over the area debris will get caught in the hose as vacuum sucks but not go into the actual vacuum.

This is a great tip. unfortunately for me I have no clue where I lost the lens. It literally could be anywhere in my house.. In effort to forget they were in I tried to be busy and did all kids of stuff..

So, lens still lost.


Well.. I am having serious issues with new contacts. This is my first pair of RGP ( rigid gas permeable) lenses. When I left office I was a nervous wreck out of fear of losing them. Sure enough, I get home. put them in and about an hour later I think to myself- wow that left sure is comfortable. When I went to take out is was gone. I was BEYOND upset. They cost 165.00 each.
In my defense, the left wasn’t fitting that great and she is bringin in another and I had no idea it could pop out. If I had known I would have sat on med without moving for half an hour.
( I am to wear them for half hour+ each day , twice and increase times and build up to 8 hours over 2 weeks)

When I was not madly blinking to stop the itch vision was pretty good. I can’t see myself ever getting used to these. She did say people have rough time with hard contacts but this is ridiculous. I can’t take the stress.

I left panicked message on eye doctors voice mail - in case one of the lenses is somehow still in my eye but I think I would feel it. I hate this whole experience.

I will also note that I think I have an eye infection. Eyes are oozing and I want to scratch them out.
In a word. I am miserable.
