My eye!


Why must I put up with such terrible pain EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I put my contacts in or take them out? I can't deal with this anymore. It's so very frustrating. I am in constant eye pain. I was having problems a few weeks ago and went to the eye doctor to be informed that I had a corneal abrasion that was causing me an immense amount of pain and discomfort. Since then, I have been having problems. It should not hurt for me to put my contacts in and it should not hurt to remove them either. This is ridiculous.

My doctor recommended these lenses to me in October and said that they would be much more comfortable and give my cornea more room to breathe but I have not found this to be the case. AT ALL.

I looked up reviews on this particular lens and found 95% of them to be extremely negative. Comments were being made about wearers suffering permanent cornea damage from this lens! Of course, being the mega worry wart that I am, I immediately started to freak out and dialed my eye doctor and made an appointment to go in today and demand a different lens. I can't do this anymore and I refuse to wear this lens ever again. I even printed up numerous reviews to show him. Last time I told him I thought something might be wrong with the lens he looked at me as if I were crazy and stated very matter-of-factly that "these lenses were the best of the best". Yeah the freak right!

So, I really hope that this is the end of these terrible eye problems because it's getting to be too much. I have young eyes, I should be able to wear contacts comfortably! I hope he gets the message and if not, I suppose I'll have to find a new Doctor.

Thank you for listening to me vent.

Any other contact wearers out there who have tried Acuvue Oasys? I detest them! Don't try them!

I HATE contacts! I have astygmatism (i know thats not how you spell it but i didnt feel like googling it LOL!) in my eyes and I'm supposed to wear contacts but they hurt my eyes too!! My mom gets mad at me because everytime i go renew my license i have to go make an eye appt. just so I can get new contacts and pass the eye exam for my drivers license! LOL!

I have a love/hate relationship with my contacts. I love the fact that I have the choice everyday between glasses and contacts, but I hate putting them in, my eyes are always way too dry with them in, and I always seem to drop them on the floor!

I would shop around for other eye doctors too.

I'm to scared to wear contacts. I'd rather wear glasses!

Be strong with your doctor! They're your eyes...if you're in pain, you make the decisions regardless of what he says!

If it makes you feel any better, my best friend had major problems with her contacts a few years ago and I'm pretty sure she had what you are describing. She's totally fine permanent damage.
