Of course it also depends on how strong the prescription is, with extremely high degrees myopia or hyperopia the vertex difference does make a difference. Also the eyelashes do flick moisture onto the lenses altering clarity. You should make sure lenses fit. ...Read more

Hi I put castor oil and coconut oil mix on to my eyelashes, some of it got into my eyes now they are hurting. What should I do?

Don't wipe the surface of your eye with any object, or you can do harm. ...Read more
