To ask why my contact lens keeps going blurry in just one eye?
Cinnamonandcoal · 23/09/2022 09:33
I wear daily contacts but recently one of the lenses keeps going blurry, always in the same eye. If I replace with a new one it's fine again so must be something getting on it.
Could be mascara but why just the one same eye? And today I'm not wearing makeup and the same thing is happening.
If anyone has had the same issue and worked it out please tell me!
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Mines does this when my eye is dry which can be a problem with longer term contact lenses use. Try an eye drop

Same for me in one eye - it was dry eyes and I use a drop for that eye

Im a long time contact lens wearing and I get this too. Always my right eye. I do wear monthlies tho. I had a contact lens check at spec savers a couple of weeks ago and they said everything was fine 🤷🏼♀️. I went in a couple of years ago as I was getting headaches and they gave me eye drops as my eyes were very dry, maybe linked to dry eyes then?

Is it a toric lens (to correct astigmatism)? If so it could be that it’s rotating.
Or maybe that eye is dry?

Is it a fingerprint?
What age bracket are you? Last time I went I was told that you get ‘drier’ as you get older 😳😂 I had a runny eye so my lens would blur and slip out. Old age doth not come alone lol

I have this too and was told it was due to protein in my eye? Drops sorted it, the ones you can use with the lenses in.

Right sounds like eye drops are the first thing to try, I hadn't even thought of that. Will buy today.
Thanks so much.
I have an expensive monthly subscription so all these extra lenses are adding up, and I just don't find wearing glasses comfortable.

I would go and get your optician to have a look and get their advice before you start drops, though, as everyone here can only guess!

Another vote for eye drops here.
I put drops in when I put mine in in the morning and once in the afternoon. They make such a difference comfort wise & clear all that cloudy eye stuff to the corner where I can remove it.
