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).

Blurry vision after taking out corrective lens, what to do?

Soft or Gas Perm cls: Gas permeable contacts can alter the shape of the cornea resulting in blurred vision with glasses after they are removed (spectacle blur) this is best compensated by getting a glass rx for that shape so you can use your glasses in the evening.

Second opinion: See an ophthalmologist for a second opinion.

The doctor should be able to correct your vision or tell you why it is not correctable. ...Read more
