Eyes Wedge When Wearing Contact Lenses?
Night. I want to ask, I just used minus lens contact, right eye minus 2 and left 4.25. Methafilcon A 45% moisture content 55%. To wear on the left eye comfortably but on the right eye feels lumpy. Whereas before for ordinary contact lenses (without minus) comfortable to wear right and left.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The discomfort you feel when using contact lenses, can occur for several reasons. The first is related to the minus power itself.
Minus on contact lens is not exactly the same as minus which is used as a benchmark for glasses, because of the different distance between glasses and contact lenses to the eye. The glasses still have a distance of a few millimeters, while the contact lens attaches directly to the eye. So if the contact lens is not prescribed by an ophthalmologist, you should be checked by an ophthalmologist to be certain, because the distance between the minuses we see is also quite far.
Then, because the contact lenses used are different, there could be irritation in the eye caused by a new contact lens, an allergic response, or even an infection. This also needs to be ascertained by looking directly at the condition of the contact lens and the eyes, whether there really is redness, bumps or something that is indeed a block. Therefore, we recommend that you go to the ophthalmologist, so that misunderstandings can be avoided during the diagnosis. Your problem can also be explored at its roots and determined the best treatment so it does not repeat.
Meanwhile, if you are disturbed, do not use the contact lens first, and switch to glasses. However, pain and discomfort are our body's way of telling us something is wrong. If you ignore, it is not impossible that there is more severe damage that can occur. So, hopefully answering your question.
