Troubleshooting Common Contact Lens Issues

Even with proper care, you may occasionally encounter problems with your contact lenses. Here are some common issues and tips on how to address them:

1. Dry Eyes

Symptoms:

  • Feeling of dryness or grittiness
  • Redness
  • Blurry vision

Solutions:

  • Use Rewetting Drops: Apply rewetting drops specifically designed for contact lenses.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and eyes hydrated.
  • Blink More Often: Make a conscious effort to blink more frequently, especially when using screens.
  • Consider Different Lenses: Consult your eye care professional about trying lenses designed for dry eyes or switching to daily disposable lenses.

2. Lens Discomfort

Symptoms:

  • Irritation
  • Foreign body sensation
  • Redness

Solutions:

  • Check Lens Orientation: Ensure the lens is not inside out. A lens that forms a U shape is correctly oriented, while a cup shape indicates it is inside out.
  • Clean the Lenses: Re-clean your lenses using the proper cleaning solution to remove any debris.
  • Inspect for Damage: Check the lens for any tears or defects. Replace damaged lenses immediately.
  • Consult a Professional: If discomfort persists, consult your eye care professional.

3. Blurry Vision

Symptoms:

  • Blurred or hazy vision
  • Difficulty focusing

Solutions:

  • Clean the Lenses: Debris or protein deposits on the lens surface can cause blurry vision. Clean your lenses thoroughly.
  • Check Lens Position: Ensure the lens is correctly centered on your eye.
  • Replace Old Lenses: Use fresh lenses if your current ones are near the end of their recommended use period.
  • Review Prescription: If your vision remains blurry, you might need an updated prescription. Schedule an eye exam with your eye care professional.

4. Red Eyes

Symptoms:

  • Redness in one or both eyes
  • Itching or burning sensation

Solutions:

  • Remove Lenses Immediately: Take out your lenses to give your eyes a break.
  • Use Lubricating Drops: Apply lubricating or rewetting drops to soothe your eyes.
  • Avoid Wearing Lenses Until Symptoms Subside: Give your eyes time to recover before wearing lenses again.
  • Consult an Eye Care Professional: Persistent redness may indicate an infection or other serious condition that requires professional attention.

5. Lens Falling Out

Symptoms:

  • Lens slipping off the eye
  • Difficulty keeping lens in place

Solutions:

  • Ensure Proper Fit: Make sure your lenses are properly fitted by your eye care professional.
  • Use Rewetting Drops: Apply rewetting drops to help the lens adhere better to your eye.
  • Check Lens Type: Certain lens types may not fit well with your eye shape. Consult your eye care professional for alternatives.
