Can Contact Lenses Get Stuck Behind The Eye?

Ever wonder if a contact lens can travel up behind the eye.  The simple answer is no, but it is a common misconception.  The inner lining of the eyelid is called the conjunctiva and at the back it folds back on itself and becomes the white of your eye. It is this continuous nature of the conjunctiva that does not allow a contact lens to go behind your eye.
