I purchase contact lenses to last a year from America's Best. The contact lenses are great and affordable.
Why wear conventional yearly lens? They are mainly meant for those where disposable lens don't suit them.

Anybody here facing irritation wearing comfortable wearing contact lenses?

Wore contact lenses for a number of years, then stopped due to irritation and dryness. Switched to spec for 3 years, now it seems whenever I put on contact lenses I can feel slight irritation in my eyes.

Why you need less than 14mm? You might need to custom make such lenses which are not monthly lenses

Have you gone for a proper contact lens fitting? You can try npoc or spoc in the new term. Total dailies may be a suitable choice

I just cant use normal coloured contacts... I tried to insert them for days... They keep popping out everytime i blink... I used a daily 13.8mm lense and its fine... Abit uncomfortable when compared to clear lens...

You should go for a proper lens fitting, it might be the base curve that's causing problems, you might have a flatter cornea.

Whether a lens fit is a combination of diameter, base curve, material, and the lens design

Wearing tight contact lens is unhealthy for your eyes, will cause problems in the long run. Go to an optometrist for proper lens fitting.

You can also go to npoc or spoc when their term starts

Do you have dry eyes? There are some new contact lens with newer materials such as total dailies. Go to an optometrist for a comprehensive contact lens assessment. Not all shops do that though

These test will be done for every first timers when visiting optometrist or do we need to request?

When my first time using... Opticians check my suitable power and eye health only...
