Is it normal to have blurry vision with contact lenses?
I just got contacts after wearing only glasses for years. I find that at times throughout the day, my vision gets blurry when I am wearing the contacts. It happens sometimes when I am looking at the computer screen and it also sometimes happens when I am exercising, or sometimes I feel like I am doing nothing to bring it on.
I called the optometrist and he said that it’s the nature of contact lenses that this happens. He said that the lens sometimes moves out of alignment in the eye and vision may blur somewhat until it moves back into alignment. Sounded logical. But, I prefer my glasses I told him because everything is always clear. He again reiterated that the glasses don’t have the same issue with coming out of alignment. The coverage they provide is whole, but the lens can shift somewhat. He also mentioned that dryness can cause it, but I sometimes get blurry vision in the morning when I just put them in and they are still moist.
Is this right? Do all contact lens wearers experience blurry vision sometimes? I have astigmatism if that matters.
I wear air optix and they’re supposed to be the best contact lenses out there but even these lenses get blurry, when your staring @ the pc it dries them out and when you blink your eye closes over the dry contact and produces a smudge also like hitting a bug in your car then turning on the wipers, or it can be that your not cleaning both sides of your lenses long enough. Make sure your hands are clean and air dry them before cleaning
Could I have a tumor? What’s wrong with me? Please help.?
I am 13, I am of average weight, fairly slender. I exercise [my dad taught me how to exercise properly so, it's not that] I am tall too 5’10.
My vision is terrible 20/-4.75 [I think, it changes about every month or two; contact wearer]- no astigmatism
*Have experienced sensations where everything goes dark [eyes open and their don't seem to be any correlation with what I am doing/time of day/where I am, and these occurring]
*I tend to be a klutz, I have great balance and an avid martial artist, but for some reason I will trip or fall for no reason.
*I experience mild to severe pain in my joints, back, shoulders, neck, and pretty much everywhere. This pain is almost constant and the pain arises with no trauma occurring.
*I get headaches quite often and have extreme light sensitivity [even fluorescent light bulbs hurt my eyes, they begin to then water.]
Sun, computer/TV/cell phone screens also cause watering of my eyes [sometimes my nose too]
*pain all over my body<primarily joints, neck, and back<Long, Long time.
*rapid vision change; not for the better about every month a new prescription is required<as long as I can recall
*being a klutz although I have a strong core<as long as I can recall
*blacking out for no apparent reason<as long as I can remember
*breathing normally then suddenly having extra air to exhale<fairly recent
*light sensitivity<This started within the past couple tears
I am under a lot of stress, primarily because of my parents fighting. When they fight I do feel weak in my knees and sometimes they collapse because of this.
I don't drink, or do drugs, and I eat healthy.
I ya'll have any ideas of what is going on, there are some other things, but these are the main problems. Any help is appreciated; Thank-you
[No, I can't just talk to my doctor, my parents won't listen and they think nothing is wrong]
I also have trouble getting my eyes to focus.
No, I am not sexually active [idk if that matters, but it might]
I don't go to school, well, I do, but it's a Charter School so I only go once a week. No school nurse. And I can't go to a dr because I'm 13 [parental consent and I can't drive]
My pupils are often larger than other people's, people often mention that they are abnormally large.
Just go see a MD for an exam. If you parents have their head in the sand, go tell the school nurse.
Recommended contact lens for extended wear?
wearing softlens toric66 but they cant last long, eyes get dry after max 12hrs.
would like to know any brands of contact lens (with Astigmatism) that enable me to wear for extended hours even throughout the nite…
heard that there are some extended wear contact lens for up to 6days or 30days…considering these, but i will also take them off when going to sleep, cos i only wan better breathable contact lens to last from morning till late nite after work, to go exercise or even midnite movies, clubbing etc.
Soflens 66 lenses are cheap and will dry an give you short wear times.
You want a lens with silicone in, for example purevision toric or acuvue advance for astigmatism.
I would not recommend sleeping in contact lenses unless you really need to. The only people I would fit is soldiers or people who work in the emergency services and have to get up in the middle of the night. If you don’t need to sleep in them you are just being lazy. The risks are dramatically higher with extended wear (the risk of complications and serious infections).
You sound responsible. Wearing an extended wear lens as a daily lens is the healthiest option. They let a lot of oxygen through to your eyes and contain very little water so they tend not to dry much (if at all), so they’ll be comfortable. They cost more but they are the healthiest lenses you can buy.
Speak to your optician, they can advise you on the best lens for you because your prescription and eye shape will affect the lens options available to you.
