Magnetic Contact Lenses

Include a small amount of iron in the material used to make the lens to make removal easier.

Contacts are a pain to get out sometimes, so if when they were made small amounts of iron were included within the plastic material, concentrated around the edge then removal could be done with an electromagnet that you keep next to your electric toothbrush or whatever, infact, charge it off the same base.

The lens plunger http://clecontactle...ge=accessories.html
Slurp them out. [Veho, Dec 03 2006]

       This reminds me of something I might have heard once somewhere. Something to do with people who have worked in metalworking and related fields often having very tiny shards of metal in their eyes that entered as hot metal, and in intense magnetic fields the shards risk being pulled out again. I forget the details, this just reminded me.

       Perhaps not all at once and without warning/anesthetic

       There already is a kind of tiny "plunger" that is used to remove contact lenses. See link. Not as cool as sucking the lens out with a magnet, but less of a pain than removing them by hand. [+]

       I think the iron would be embedded in the plastic to prevent rust. Or ask for the non-embedded kind if you are anemic.
