Contact lenses. My daily ones I've used for years have started to become really uncomfortable soon after I put them in
I use ordinary Focus Dailies. They feel sticky and blurry and I'm really conscious of them as soon as I put them in these days. I used to only get that feeling after my lenses had been in too long or I was tired.
Help! Has anyone changed to a different daily lens for the same reason and is it hugely better and what did you change to? (there seem a few that are more 'moist'?)
yeah i would say it sounds like an infection maybe. you should check it out.
i do you moist dailies, and i find them pretty comfy for a fair old time... can put them in v early and leave in till v late. old ones used to dry up when motorway driving (and not blinking enough), these dont seem to. pricey tho.
Ask your optician about Acuvue Advance - they're not cheap but they're so much more comfortable!! Make an appointment and go see them, if you're on a contact lens scheme (most opticians do one) you shouldn't have to pay!
please, please take a break from them and just get yourself checked at opticians. It is horribly easy to get an infection (I got one and couldn't wear my lenses for 4 months, becuse I didn't spot the warning signs in time)
