Question: Eye Problems and a lil Paranoid

Lil Kis - Fri Jun 24, 2005 11:13 am

Well I started wearing contacts about 1 year ago? Anyways before I weared contacts I noticed my eyes vision getting worse and worse. Also one eye is much better than the other. Now when I wear contacts I noticed my eyes become red and vainey sometimes when their in or out. It goes away after a hour or two but I just need to know if this is a problem at all?

In the beginning I wore contacts but now I wear colored contacts is there a difference? Can colored contacts or regular contacts damage your eyes more than the other or at all?

Also once in a while I have been falling asleep for hours with my contacts in what can this do to my eyes?

Hi Lil Kis,
Regardless of whether the contacts are clear or colored should not have any affect. If the contact lenses are hard verses soft, this may cause unusual eye irritation as well as if your eyes are not producing enough tears. An evaluation by your eye doctor should be able to identify if there are any abnormalities.
