Contact Lense problem?
Okay so I was playing basketball at a gym and All the sudden my right eye felt terrible so I went to the bathroom and pulled it out of my eye. On the contact there was a piece of hair so I pulled it off, but after that l accidentely dropped it onto the bathroom floor, so I washed it very well with water, and placed it back into my eye. Will I be okay, what can I do to prevent an infection?

Bathroom floor!! Not a good idea.  Water will not disinfect a contact lens.  For a contact lens you have risked an infection of the cornea and potential loss of vision.
