i hving this issue w my newly prescribed contact lens too :(

things appear fuzzy, not sharp, no matter or far. went back to check w optician. they under-prescribed 25 deg for both eyes, and i think astig wasnt adjust fully (i have rather high astig). by right, that is like the SOP, so they are puzzled as to y i cant see things as sharp as I shld be.

i oso need to keep rubbing my eyes, which according to them is normal, cos my eyes not used to the lens yet. but 1 mth le still no improvement, n seems getting worse? :/

far and near sight blur may be due to astigmatic or other reason. a trained optometrist should be able to notice the problem.

your eyes itchy? the problem may be due to the solution....

w/o proper checking, it is difficult to diagnose the problem. advise you to stop wearing the lens and visit an optometrist.

Hey all, gotten my contact lens from "__Neo__" who has offered a cheaper deal than what I could get elsewhere. My experience with him makes me feel that he is pretty responsive to messages and is not just interested in earning your money but also concerned if the lens is suitable for you and etc.

So, I got my lens in less than 2 weeks, which was quite alright. The lens were personally delivered by him too FOC and he still checks with me whether the contact lens were alright rather even after the deal.

Overall, I would recommend getting your lens from him if you think that his price is reasonable. As for me, I would get my future lens from him :)

First time wearer here..

Got my 4 boxes of contacts from the optician yesterday. Started wearing today. Took me close to 10 mins to wear both sides..

I bought Acuvue dailys for astig. My sis was telling me I should hve gotten monthly contacts instead.

Any ideas?

Must weight the pros and cons lor.

Dailys more expensive, but use and throw. No need spend on solution. No need worry about protein deposit.

Monthly cheaper. But if anything happen like lost 1 side, 1 side broke or sensitive eyes sometime, that 1 pair that's it.

I used to use monthly one, first 2 weeks is OK. After that my eyes start getting red like after 5-6hrs. Washed and try again also same. End up 1 month buy 2 pair of monthly lenses.

I guess I'm just an isolated case, my gf has no issue with her monthly lens. But I'm gonna try the 1 day acuvue moist soon to see how it goes.

Depends how often u intend to wear + how diligent u r. If wear everyday n u diligent, monthly better. Every day rmber rub w solution. Dun lazy n get urself infected.

If u wear only once in a while randomly or even just few times a week then get daily lor. Wear n throw away.

Thanks everyone for the advice! :) so far no discomfort with wearing the lense. Some things appear alittle fuzzy. Not sure it's cos I'm not used to it or the prescription is off..

Might be because the lens does not fit your eyes. Not everything is due to your prescription power. Like I always said. Contact lenses are prescription only medical device and needs to be prescribed not bought. If you bought it off the counter. Good luck to you

Hi Neo

Can you pm me too?

Thanks
Contact lens needs to be prescribed. Not you suka suka want to change lens go somewhere else buy another brand. If anything happens to your eye. You're to blame. Risk of infections due to contact lens is 20 per 10000 people per year. Though the risk is low. The consequence of getting infections is high. Consequences are losing sight, severe pain and suffering
