Is it normal for first-time contact lens wearers to have blurry vision?

Is it normal for first-time contact lens wearers to have blurry vision?

Contact lenses: It depends. The vision should be clear unless your eyes are dry, the contact lenses don't fit properly, the lenses are in the wrong eye, or if both lenses are in the same eye (this can happen).
