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 more
Contacts: Probably yes but please contact your eye doctor for certainty. ...Read more
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 more
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?
No harm: As long as you have been fitted for a given brand and curvature of contact lens, any color is ok, so mix and match at will. ...Read more
Help! I cannot wear contact lenses because the optic zone is too small for my eyes. What are my options?
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?
Can be safe: These contacts can be safe if fitted properly and taken care of. Most likely nothing will happen to your eyes, except for a little dryness maybe. ...Read more
OK: It is acceptable to wear contact lenses if you have a scar in you eye. ...Read more
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
No: It is not bad, but it will make the eyes look a bit muddy. ...Read more
Happens!: As we age, our ability to tolerate contacts are reduced. Specially in women as then approach middle age. Hormonal changes lead to changes such as dry eyes, mouth, skin, . .. There are different measures that can be taken such as change in contact lens material, cleaning solution, & some other efforts to boost production & retaining of tears. Ultimately all good things come to an end! ...Read more
I have recently tried to wear prescription multi-focal contact lenses. How long does it usually take for ones eyes to adjust.
1-2 weeks: I give most who try this about 1-2 weeks for trial. If they cannot adjust, I see them again for a recheck to make sure the power and fit are ok. About 50% of folks who try this, cannot adjust to it. They find the type of images produced by these lenses to be disturbing and not comfortable. Motivation is important also and previous contact lens wearers generally do better. ...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
