Question

 

 

Hi,

I wear contact lens and its been a few weeks that i am not able to wear lens especially in my right eye as the lens moves towards the up side of the eye whenever i blink and it feel like a foreign thing is stuck in my eye.

The refractive power of contact lenses are -2.25 D and -2.0 D

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You should stop wearing these lenses and you should follow up with an optometrist or ophthalmologist for trials of contact lens fitting.

Contact lenses with poor fitting due to wrong base curve or diameter or both usually move too much with each blinking. Poor fitting contact lenses can cause dry eyes, corneal abrasion and corneal infection so it would be better to stop wearing them and follow up  optometrist.
