There are three methods you can try. 1. Pull your lower eyelid down gently with your fingertip and roll your eye around, sometimes this dislodges it. 2. Close your eyes and place your finger on your upper eyelid and gently massage the eyeball. Open your eyes and hopefully the lens should reappear. 3. Squirt saline solution in your eye as the lens may have dehydrated in your sleep. Then try one of the two methods i have described above. I have worn contacts for about 16 years now and the best advice I can give you is:- TAKE THEM OUT BEFORE YOU FALL ASLEEP. DON'T RUB YOUR EYES TOO VIGOUROUSLY WITH THEM IN IF THEY HURT WHEN YOU PUT THEM BACK IN, WEAR YOUR GLASSES AND GET NEW LENSES. YOU ONLY GET ONE PAIR OF EYES. LOOK AFTER THEM.

Why do you wear an eye patch during Bell's Palsy?

Patients with Bell's Palsy sometimes wear an eye patch or cotton gauze taped over the eyelid that is paralyzed in order to keep that eyelid closed tightly. Keeping it closed tightly over long periods of time such as at night while sleeping is important because it keeps the cornea lubricated. Patients with BP cannot close the eyelid tightly even while asleep, so moisture escapes. Gauze taped over the eyelid keeps it pressed down.

How does the eyelid protect your eyes?

The eyelid protects the front part of the eye. The eyelid is a piece of skin that is movable so that it can open and close. The eyelid also helps keep the eye moist. It does this by blinking. The eyelid also has great reflexes. If a ball or other object is coming towards the eye, the eyelid will quickly close to protect the eye. The eyelid will also close or squint when there is bright sunlight.
