Will Contact Lenses Melt?

Can contact lenses melt? Under extreme circumstances, anything will melt. But normally, no this won’t be the case with contacts. This is probably based on the old myth, “What happens if I leave them in the car, in the sun, in Phoenix, in July?” Answer, not very much. Let them cool off before you try to put them in your eyes. Under normal conditions, contacts will not melt in the eye. Contacts are sterilized at the point of manufacturing under high heat, so its very unlikely they would melt while being worm, even under unusual circumstances.

We’ve never tried to putting them on a grill but we suspect they’d melt, post haste.
