How it feels in your eye. A contact lens that is put in the wrong way round will generally be more uncomfortable and may feel slightly like it is lightly scraping your eye. It won’t sit comfortably on the curvature of your eye and will easily move from the centre. It may even pop out.
How can I tell if my contacts are in the wrong eye?
Gently squeeze the lens as if you were trying to fold it in half. While squeezing, look at the edge of the lens. If it’s pointing upwards, or if the edges appear to meet, then the lens is the correct way around. If it bends outwards towards your finger and thumb, then the lens is inside out.

How do I know if my contacts are left or right?

How can you tell if a contact lense is left or right?
