Contact lenses causing vision problems?

Description:
I visited an optometrist a few months ago because the vision in my right eye was blurry, and my eyelid was drooping. He told me I'd warped my eye or something like that and advised me to wear my glasses for a month. I did so, but I've since gone back to my contacts. Now the problem is returning. I'm... I do have astigmatism in both eyes, rather severely. I don't think that my eye drying out is the problem, but I really don't know. If anyone has any specific contact brand suggestions, that would be helpful. Also, if you've had this problem, how long did it take to correct itself? My droopy eyelid...

    I would go back and tell them you need them fixed now - and if you have to get bold with them. Tell them you can not wait the time they want you to, that the glasses are wrong and you can not do your work. If they still don't help you out right away I would go to a different doctor - but first make sure you call your insurance co. and tell them what has happened and then report the place of business to the BBB (Better Business Bureau) Give them a bad rating. Also make sure you tell everyone you know how terrible they where to you and how they made the mistake and wouldn't do anything to help you. Word of mouth is the best advertisment - good or bad! Good-luck!

    You know what, the same thing happened to me. Sounds to me like you need to get a new doctor, or get a little mean. Sometimes doctors think they know it all and mess up. I would get angry and tell them you demand them to see you now and make your eyes right or you want your money back and you will go elsewhere. JUST TELL THEM TO DO THEIR JOB DAMN IT!!!!Can you get a scond opinion from someone? They may have put the lenses on the wrong side! You shouldn't have to wait two weeks..... you could be doing more damage to your eyes!!! Go and see someone else!

    You can't. I had the same problem. Either have glasses or have laser eye surgery. You can't change your prescription of your eyes in the flick of the switch. Alternatively, if you think that your doctor is a complete lunatic, and you want to get contacts, and you do know your prescription, then go to www.contactlenses.co.uk. Which can independantly supply you with contact lenses. But if your doctor did say not too, its best to do what he says (he is the professional in the end) Good luck anyhow!

    brand: essilorGas Permeable ones work great--my mom has them and she has astigmatism. Just for the first month your eyes will hurt and you will probably be squinting a lot until you get callouses on your eyes and are used to them. So if you are willing to go through that first month, by all means, go for those. (They might be easier to get used to now, my mom first got hers quite a while ago.)

    Your lens could be torn. Sometimes this is difficult to notice. Also clean or change the lens container. Do not sleep with the lens. It could be an infection. Make sure you are not using the contact lens solution that was withdrawn. And for a while wear your glasses till the problem subsides. And yes, do see the doctor immediately.

    you may have just scratched it, are you still waring your lenses?I also wear contacts. And when my eyes also get really red. One time it was from an eye infection. I had to stop wearing contacts for 2 weeks and take some eye drops. Also I am a swim instructor so dealing with the chlorine dried my eyes out, so I used over the counter eye drops for a while.

    Semi-perms are ok, just a little annoying to get in and out. I'm waiting for my optometrist to get some soft torics in so I can try them.If you have astigmatism you should really try the toric soft lenses, Proclear torics and Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism are really good lenses, the reason why your experiencing blurry vision with contact lenses is either the contact lens prescription is not correct (this is different from glasses), or you may have been given a spherical instead of a toric lens (used for astigmatism), if you have been given a toric lens it may not be oriented correctly so ur vision may fluctuate. As for Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses, they will correct your astigmatism but they tend to be much more uncomfortable, especially at the begining...

    I recommend Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism. I know that they are a good make because I wear them, and it is made by a respectable company, Johnson and Johnson.Gas permeable is great for people with astigmatism. I used to use those when I was wearing contacts.

    Sounds like you may have the wrong shaped lenses for your eyes. See your optometrist to make sure you are wearing the correct ones for you. Also, if they are disposable, it may be time to replace them.i f you get irritated eyes, red , watery, or you find it hard to open them ,dayligth bugs you,its because you're eyes are to sensitive for contacts,you should try waring glasses then cause it Ill always be that way, on the other hand you're contacts migth be worn out or not the rigth ones explain this to you're optometrist ,

    It could be you have an odd shaped eyeball that makes your contact lenses shift. Do you have an astigmatism? That could also be the problem. People with astigmatism sometimes have a hard time with contact lenses because they "rock" on the eye and move around a lot. Make an appointment with your eye doctor and tell him or her your concerns, and maybe he or she can prescribe you a more comfortable fitting contact lens.they are not suppost to. hm take them out, wash them of, and change them to diff.eyes. oh maybe contacts are just not rite for u.u should start thinkin about wearin glasses.

    i wear tinted glasses and i have never had any problemsI do not think tinted contact lens will block the amount of light that you will notice. For your information, when my cataracts were removed, I no longer required glasses. I am a former military veteran, and the US Veterans Administration performs thousands of cataract operations, and because of cost of implanted lens, tinted implanted lens are not available. I expected driving at night was taboo because of the glare from oncoming automobile lights. Once I was blinded and hit the curbs and collapsed two car tires that cost $500 to replace. I considered purchasing tinted contact lens without prescription to reduce glare so I could drive my car at night. I could only tolerate the contact lens for two months. The shape of my implanted lens caused my contacts to pop out and I accidently stepped on one. During the two months wearing tinted contacts, I do not remember any loss of sharpness in my vision. In your line-of-work, you may need to purchase a back-up pair of lens. Harrald

    hey! um i kind of have the same problem a couple of months ago. i wear the regular aquve ( i know thats spelled wrong). and i usually wore them for like a month at a time and when i was wearing them my top eyelid was very sore and started to swell up. I know how you were talking about the inner lid but maybe this is the same. i had a regular eye apt. and he said i had an infection and gave me eye drops and i had to wear my glasses for about a week and it went away and i havent had it happen since. i have no idea if this is any help but hopefully it is. i just wanted to let you know that you are not the only one with this problem :)you could try lasic eye surgery, i've heard nothing but good about it. you won't have to go back to glasses and you can forget about contacts.

    you're wearing them for the first time.. its gunna feel a bit funny like sometthing is scratching your eyelids.. but perhaps you are a bit sensative.. since you don't want to wear glasses.. i suggest you go get your eyes lasered...I hope you take out your contacts at night. That might help a little. I found that the best option was laser therapy. I had it done 18 months ago and I cannot believe how much it has changed my life. For the better!
