I was removing my contact and it ripped in half. At least I think it was half as I tried to carefully piece it together and make sure a small piece wasn't missing. It was hard to tell, so there is a chance a very very small piece is left in my eye. It doesn't hurt like an eyelash or piece or dirt would, it feels more sore, like a very very dull pain in my eye socket, like in the back of my eye. IF I did leave a small piece of it in there, 1) would it feel like that or would there be other symptoms (more pain, redness, fluid), and 2) what will happen? Will it disintegrate or do I need to see an eye Dr?
