Another cause of contact lens intolerance is allergies to either something external or to the lens or lens solutions or cleaners. This will usually have tell-tale signs on examination so the doctor that prescribed the contact lenses should be able to tell you. If they are not sure you can request to be referred to a cornea specialist.
- recommend evaluation by eye professional to learn what options are available for you
1. Eyes may be dry
2. The contact lens does not sit properly on your eye
1. The type of contact lens is not appropriate for your eyes (you did not specify daily wear, extended wear, water content, other lens material) or fit of the lens may not be right. A change n type of lens might help.
2. Ocular surface disease or simple dry eye which might respond well to change in lens or use of wetting solution may be involved.
An ophthalmologist or optometrist would be qualified to evaluate these and recommend a solution.
The only way to know for sure is to have it examined by a reputable eye doctor and rule everything out until a solution is found.
Dr. Shereen Hakki
I would seek out an eye care professional who has experience with contact lens fittings and treatment of ocular surface disease.
One common issue is having GPC Allergy of your upper posterior eyelid tissue. Another can be subtle Cornea "front of the eye" conditions. Dry eye etc...
However, MOST common is just poor Contact Lens fit.
I would recommend you have your Doc see if you are a candidate for the "Daily 1-day disposable" Contacts.
Lastly, there is a percentage of patients that are just Contact Lens intolerant.
Options then could be LASIK or PRK Refractive surgery .
Good luck! Doc W
