My right contact lens after a week causes slight blurriness and eye irritation. this remains with glasses on. what causes 1 lens to always wear faster?

Wrong assumption.: There is probably nothing wrong with the contact lens itself. There may be a problem with the fit in that eye or perhaps that eye is more dry and becomes contact lens intolerant sooner. Modern contact lens technology is amazingly consistent . Eyes not so much.
