    Can lipid deposits be seen on silicone contact lenses? I'm wearing
    Acuvue Oasys lenses, and am on the 2nd week with this pair of lenses.
    Today, for some reason, they feel inside out (I checked... they're
    not). I always rub them before disinfecting. I held up the lenses and
    they look extremely clear with no apparent film, but I don't know if
    lipid or protein deposits can be seen with the naked eye.

    Thanks,
    Ed
