Default What are "Jelly Bumps"?

I was reading about spots on your contacts lenses and someone said that they could be "jelly bumps." I've never heard that term before, and, well, it just doesn't sound very "scientific" to me. Does anyone reading this know what "jelly bumps" are?

Default Jelly Bumps

Jelly bumps are also (more scientifically) known as "lens calculi." These are tiny little bumps that appear on contact lenses. They are composed of calcium, protein and fats, and are the result of contacts that are not very well taken care of. They are more common in people who have a diet that's high in fats, proteins and alcohol.
Unfortunately, there's really no way to remove these bumps from the contacts without ruining them, so there's really no choice but to throw the lens away and try again.

Thank you Dragongirl81. That was very informative. I just have one more question. If you have to throw your contacts away because of the calculi, how do you keep this from happening again?
