Can I Use Contact Lenses Instead Of My Very Thick Spectacles
I wear monthly disposable contact lenses and once i bathed with lenses on and little water went in my eyes, should I use the lenses or discard them?

I use contact lenses and sometimes my eyes get red.I'm also allergic.Shall I use eye drops, antiallergenics or take off the lenses?
Take out contacts: In order to put in anti-allergy eye drops, you need to take out your lenses anyway, so take them out for awhile, as soon as practically possible, when the eyes become red. Redness means inflammation. It's really hard to tell if there is one cause or several. The contact itself is a foreign body, and if you are allergic, you can even be allergic to drops, so have your eye doctor check you & advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Help! i cannot wear contact lenses because the optic zone is too small for my eyes. What are my options?
Many: This is a rare complaint. You can try glasses. LASIK or PRK may help, but they have limits to their optical zone as well.

I am nearsighted and one of my eye has a prescription of -1.5. When I wear glasses, will the lens make my eye appear smaller?
The right-eye lens i used got stuck to my eye and i couldn't remove it except using some eye drops. I'm afraid. Can I use contacts again?
Yes: Yes you can, but before you resume the use of lenses, you should have your contact lens fit re-evaluated to ensure the fit is not too tight. Your eye doctor can also look for dry eyes, which can also make the contact lens fit too tight. If dry eye is present, there are several treatment options which might improve your contact lens tolerance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Regardless, if you notice a film over your eyes w/o using glasses, it's time to return to your Optometrist or Ophthalmologist for further evaluation. Perhaps you're myopic (near-sighted) too? ...Read more
