    Well, do you have any uncomfortable feeling when you wear your contacts? If you do, then I am guessing that you are wearing the wrong side. Or the reason may be that your eye shape changes. You know, people' s eye shape changes sometimes with time going by. Surely, you had better go to see a doctor for some professional suggestions. But I think it is no big deal, coz as you know, when you blink, your eyeballs will move, and then your contacts will move along with your lenses. Don' t panic. Just don' t rub your eyes when you are wearing contacts, or you may get your lenses broken in your eyes. Hope this helps.

    Haha, such an interesting question! Of course your contact lenses will move with your eyeballs. What do you think? By the way, if your contacts stay still when your eyeballs move, your eyes will be hurt for sure. It is a good thing, it will not make your eyes too dry. I approve that you should blink your eyes more often when you are wearing your contacts. It will help your eyes to get fresh air and keep them moisture. Don' t freak out, it is really no big deal.

    Ok, it seems that there is something wrong with the use of your contact lenses .Because generally speaking, our contact lenses would be automatically fixed in our eyes. And maybe you have been wearing them much too long, for they must be cleaned and kept well each day. I recommend that you try to wear less and follow the mannual of your contact lenses. Hope you find this useful.

    First of all, you need to check if your wear them inside out. If so, turn them over and this situation won't happen any more. Secondly, it is likely that the contacts are too thin. For new wearers, short term disposal contact lenses may be too thin to fit in. Choose thicker contacts. Thirdly, you may be having dry eyes so that the contact lenses can't cling to your cornea well. In this case, you need to improve your dry eyes first. Last but not the least, the size of the contacts doesn't fit your eyes well. You have better change another brand or consult your optometrist.

    Is this your first time to wear contact lenses? Several reasons can influence the matching of our glasses, especially when one’s eyesight is taller than another. If the tiny difference have not been recognised at that time, as time goes, you eyes would have tried to correct the vision. As a result, contacts keep moving. If so, go back to the store and ask for help. Apart from that, you need to consider the way you wear the lenses. I mean, it is generally accept to wash your hands carefully before you wear them because even a tiny amount of perfume residue in your finger tip can have an impact. Sometimes, the moving of the contacts tends to be caused by eye dryness due to insufficient lubrication. Well, lenses with more of a moistener will help immensely. You can also take lubricated drops into consideration. By the way, some foreign things suddenly entering in your eyes can also influence. Have a good day.
