My color now has solid activity , I’m a bit annoyed with kcamata, And I live in another city not the city that used to be. It’s a little difficult to meet my doctor first … If I want to buy contact lenses, how do I choose, finally I tried, brand X2 with a water content above 55% but my eyes continue to shed tears, and are very sleepy when exposed to the wind … And most of the optics if asked for that good and suitable is only answered up to
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Choosing contact lenses is more complicated than choosing glasses because contact lenses stick directly to the surface of your eyes. The calculations are also different, so for minus and cylinder calculations you should consult the ophthalmologist again. There are many other factors that must be considered to determine the right contact lens, such as whether the condition of the eye is dry or there are certain errors.
Regarding the optician who handed over the decision to choose contact lenses to you, this is not entirely wrong. Because in the end, if you want glasses or contact lenses, if you are in a condition you cannot or cannot be examined by an eye doctor, the most important thing is your comfort. It is not uncommon for someone who based on multiple measurements, minus his eyes to be -2.00, but he is more comfortable using glasses with a power of minus -1.75 or even -.1.50 because the -2.00 is too 'bright' for him and dizzy. In such conditions, it is no problem using a technique that is not suitable for inspection, and is lowered until he feels comfortable.
Likewise with your case, you already feel for yourself that with a particular brand contact lens, you experience discomfort. Then use other brands or variants that are more comfortable for you. If you have tried with higher and lower water levels but the complaint persists, consult your ophthalmologist because there might be something wrong in the way you use contact lenses, or there are other conditions in your eyes that make the disorder always appear. So it's really up to you, because everything returns to comfort. Because to really make sure which one is right, you should consult an ophthalmologist, because this is not necessarily a brand problem or a water content problem, you should find out in advance.
Speaking of ophthalmologists, you don't have to see your first doctor. It would be better to meet the same doctor because he knows more about the course of your illness, but it is no problem to change doctors. He will definitely check you from the beginning, and eventually arrive at the same level of understanding as your previous eye doctor. Meanwhile, if you still can't find the right contact lenses, it's better not to force yourself to use contact lenses first, and just use glasses with fewer risks. So, hopefully answering your question.
