Maybe: If your ulcer is healed and the surface of the cornea over the scar does not have an irregular surface (lumpy and bumpy), and there is no corneal neovascularisation (blood vessel growth), you should be able to wear a well fit contact. ...Read more
What kind of lens?: Although there are extended wear contact lenses, I recommended daily removal before sleeping. Tears provide anti-infective compounds and enzymes which are in short supply during sleep when tear production drops. This puts the eye at greater risk for potentially sight threatening infections. ...Read more
Needs evaluation: Bandage lenses are inserted to minimize pain of ocular surface disease and help to promote healing. Generally they are checked in 1-3 days by the ophthalmologist who inserted the lens (you are seeing a real doctor, not an optometrist for eye disease?). You should not have this left in for a week. Return for a recheck. ...Read more

My vision is smokey...when I walk in to a room it looks like it is filled with smoke. I also do not wear contact lens.
Not a good idea: Redness is a sign of a problem. As a general rule, anytime your eye is red, the first that you need to do is to take the contact lens out. There is strong likelihood that the redness is due to the contacts and keeping it in will only aggravate the situation (although your eye may feel better wearing the contacts). See your eye md for an evaluation. ...Read more

Bad habits increase risk of corneal infection which can be severe and lead to ulceration, scarring, vision loss, and even loss of eye. To lower the risk of infection, wash hands, use sterile solutions, avoid sleeping in lenses, reusing solution, toss when their time is due, and have a regular examination. ...Read more
