Contact lenses: There are many factors that come into consideration, including the current state of the contact lenses, the adequate prescription in the lenses, lens hygiene, adequate tear production, and current health problems, to mention only a few factors. ...Read more
I'm always squinting even in the abscence of light which makes my eyes tired,ihave brown eyes i have myopia and wear contact lenses how to stop it?
I tend to open my eyes wide when wearing contact lenses, which causes some eye fatigue. Is this normal? Should I consciously close up my eyelids a bit as if I am wearing glasses?
It is common: to open your eyes wider while wearing contact lenses, especially while getting use to them. If your eyes are becoming fatigued while wearing contact lens, you should decrease the amount of time that you are wearing them, in order to allow your eyes to adapt. Try wearing the contacts for only 4 hours/day for a few days, if your eyes do not feel fatigued, gradually increase the number of hours/day ...Read more
How old should I be to get an eye surgery? I have astigmatism and i'm getting tired of using glasses and contact lenses
Vision surgery: There is no set age limit for when you can get laser corrective surgery (e.g., lasik, lasek, prk), but generally speaking it's best to have your eyeglass prescription stabilize (not change) for at least a year. That way your eyes will be less likely to outgrow this rather expensive surgery. You should also be screened by a refractive surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Yes overuse can lead to contact lens overwear (irritation, redness, etc), as well as increased risk for corneal infections (which can permanently cause vision loss), decreased oxygenation (corneal pannus), and the lenses can tear after used beyond what they are supposed to be used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need fitting: Like for halloween perhaps? It is generally safe to use contact lenses but even if you only use them for one day you should have an eye exam and fitting for lenses. This is so an appropriate curvature can be selected, and to be sure you know how to insert and remove the lens. I have seen people develop a corneal ulcer with less than one day of use, so there is always some risk. ...Read more
Large pupils: If someone has very large pupils, they may have symptoms from wearing contact lenses, but mostly at night when the pupil dilation is maximal. Soft contact lenses have very large optical zones, so it is hard to imagine that this would actually prevent you from being able to wear them. Rigid lenses, like gas permeable lenses, are much smaller can more problematic with large pupils. ...Read more
Could you tell me if i wear two different colour opaque contact lenses, will any harm come to my eyes?
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. Clear lens replacement with an intraocular lens and ICL are potential options. First you need a visit with a good ophthalmologist to verify your problem and discuss solutions in person. Good Luck! ...Read more
I'm scared and worried, how if i wear coloured contact lenses even i don't need them and just for style.., is it safe?And what will happen to my eyes?
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
