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!
