    Help! I have once posted on this forum on ways to remove the extremely
    slippery Focus Dailies. I have tried all the methods and the contact lens is
    now still stuck in my eyes. How?

    Thats exactly why I went to the Soft Lens daily disposables. Much easier to
    get out.

    As we have had this discussion before, and you are still having the same
    difficulties, I'd strongly advise you, again, to see your doctor and be
    refitted to a different lens. Clearly, Focus Dailies are not for you.

    A quick review:

    1. add one or two drops of saline to your eyes, wait 30 seconds or so
    2. wash and dry hands thoroughly.
    3. touch center of lens and slide it down a couple of mm.
    **if the lens is still stuck, add a couple of more drops of saline and
    wait 30 seconds or longer and try again. If the lens is still stuck,
    see a doctor.
    4. place thumb on one side of lens by edge and forefinger on the other
    side and remove lens by "pinching" the edges toward the center.
    5. discard lenses and make appointment with your doctor.

    I've found that sometimes moving the thumb slightly upward and the
    forefinger slightly downward (or vice versa) while pinching will work
    better than not. My left lens is always more troublesome than my right,
    and I can generally feel my left lens more than my right. We all have
    crosses to bear.
