    It’s possible for today’s contact lenses to fall out, though less commonly so. The old, hard contacts popped out frequently. Since the introduction of soft contact lenses and the advances in design and materials, this has really been reduced. About the only time you’ll experience contact lenses falling out is if the lens has not been correctly ‘fitted’ to your eye. During the contact lens fitting process the person doing the fitting, a dispensing optician, a contact lens fitter or an O.D., has the opportunity to see using florescien dye and a slit lamp whether or not the contact lens fits perfectly on your eye. Well-fitted contacts stay in place on the eyes and improve peripheral vision during sports and physical activity.
