White Shadows Appear When Using Contact Lenses?
I want to ask. r nI have recently been wearing soft lenses, my eyes are not minus, I have everyday lenses that I wear which are comfortable when I wear them but when I use other brands of lenses, my vision looks like a white shadow. I initially thought the size of the soft lens with the white shadow was smaller but after I checked it turned out that the size was the same, so why do I have a white shadow when I eat my lens?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of white shadows when using contact lenses that you experience could be part of floaters. Often times, this condition occurs in the elderly, which is due to the cloudiness of the vitreous in the eyeball. It could also be that floaters occur due to other causes, for example:
Posterior uveitis (inflammation of the back of the eye)
Bleeding in the eye (such as from diabetes, hypertension, injury)
Side effects of surgery or medication on the eye
Apart from floaters, white shadows in the eye can also appear due to other factors, such as keratitis (inflammation of the cornea of the eye, often associated with improper use of contact lenses), pterygium (the lining of the eye that appears due to overgrowth of the conjunctiva due to UV exposure and dry air. ), the introduction of foreign objects into the eye, cataracts (clouding of the eye lens), and so on.
Our advice, to differentiate between each of the possibilities above, you should consult an ophthalmologist directly. That way, it can be determined, how severe your condition is, and what the best treatment is like. Currently, you should first stop using these contact lenses. Also, rest your eyes from staring at gadgets for too long. Protect your eyes from getting into dust, smoke, or other foreign objects that could irritate your eyes. If the eye feels very uncomfortable, you can first shed artificial tears for a while.
