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?

Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more

I have an lazy eye with +6 farsightness. My dr. suggested me wearing contact lens because she said glasses will create inbalance for me. Is it true?
Depends: A "lazy" eye has lowered vision because the brain has learned to ignore its image. One cause of this is an eye significantly hyperopic compared to the other which usually causes it to drift. The brain then learns to ignore the central image from that eye to prevent doubling. The contact lens will help IF the vision is good in the lazy eye. In most cases it will not matter. ...Read more
