i was actually looking for the correct term but i saw my eye doctor he told me things form on the inside of the eyelid (pepulla or a P word i forget it). These are caused by the contact constantly rubbing against the eyelid while u blink. These bumps on your eyelid also produce an extreme amount of …mucus, this covering ur eye in a very uncomfortable film.. Some solutions:. Get daily contacts so that ur eyelid gets a smooth new surface every day and is not being scratched by a 2week old contact.. Also dont sleep with your contacts in, and wear glasses around the house to give your eyes a break. I hope i was a help to you! If u feel like replying to me with the proper term for this illness or to say thanks please do so at KurtisDaigle@hotmail.com. Thanks. (MORE)
Some mascara went into my eyes stick on my contact lens can I continue to wear the contact lens are they harmful to the eyes?
My dad is an eye doctor and the same thing happened to me... you should just wash it out well with your lens solution and it'll be fine.
By becoming infected. "Pink eye" is the common name of any number of pathogens that can infect the eyes. Most are contagious by touch transference. So, don't touch, don't contract. Or, touch and effectively wash your hands after and reduce the chances.
Not at the same time. You should have a left and a right lens. Each one is designed to correct the fault in the appropriate eye. So in short the answer is yes you can wear them in either eye (i.e. they would fit) but they will only work properly if you put them in the correct eyes.
Your eyes should not hurt after wearing contacts. In fact you shouldn't even feel discomfort! You need to wear your contacts less and glasses more. Also get some more sleep. Your eyes shouldn't hurt after wearing contacts. The first time when you wear contacts, your optometrist is suppose to gi…ve you a trial pair. If there was any discomfort during the follow-up appointment, (the week after you said you wanted contacts) then he/she will be giving you another brand and another until the optometrist ran out of brands to give you to try in his/her office. Then he/she would tell you that you can't wear contacts at all (never happen) (MORE)
If both are same then you can wear otherwise not. Both aredifferent in most of the cases.
Well no you shouldn't put contact lenses solutions in your eye while wearing contact lenses , that can harm your eye in long run, so pls avoid it .
You can get the pink eye by either getting the cold or just getting sick. The white part of the eye is very sensitive and will get sick any way it can. The bacteria of everything you touch and if you never wash your hands and touch you eye's you will eventually get a pinkeye in a day or two.
you just buy two boxes of contacts. one for each eye. i have the same problem.
No your eye does not have to be pink or red to have pink eye. Pink eye is when your eye itches really bad, and when you keep your eye closed for a long period of time, it gets crusted shut (disgusting..). Well theres your answer, hope you don't have pink eye! Its not a fun thing to have, and don'…t itch it, that will only make it worse! Go to the doctors and they may give you something to treat the itching until the pink eye goes away.it's been proven you cannot give yourself pink eye. (MORE)
Pink eye can be transferred between people, so avoid rubbing youreyes and touching things. Wash your hands frequently to avoidspreading it. If you have not seen your doctor, do so.

Each person has a unique eye shape and contact lenses are specifically fitted to an individual. If the contact lenses are too small, they will feel uncomfortable and tight and have the potential to rupture blood vessels in the eye or cause other, potentially serious, damage If they are too lose, the…y might fall out. Additionally, it is unlikely another person's prescription will work for you.. Sharing lenses also increases the risk of spreading diseases. You have no way of knowing how hygienic someone else's lenses might be.. If you need contacts, see an eye doctor and get a pair that are specifically made for you. (MORE)
No. It's horrible for your eyes. The virus was spread onto your contact and you can't get it off with your regular solution. You need to buy new ones but you have to be 100% your pink eye is gone or you'll just damage another pair of contacts & your eye would get infected again. Im just recovering… from pink eye & unfortunaly from all the research I've read, I cant wear contacts. Which sucks, Believe me. (MORE)
If you are talking about soft contact lenses, and the lens is completely hydrated...like it just fell out of your eye and you want to put it back in, AND you cannot possibly get to your supplies or stop anywhere and get new supplies BUT you still need to drive with contacts...then I would say...go a…head and put it in your eye and then head to the nearest place to sterilize your contact and use an eye wash. You can get infections in your eyes from unsterilized contacts. When they fall out, they pick up teeny particles that can scratch your conrneas. So if this is a true emergency, go ahead for a short time...but in any other situation the answer is no. I suggest you get the daily contacts and carry an extra pair wherever you go. (MORE)
Yes, wearing contacts that aren't yours can severely damage your eyes. Be sure to get contacts that are right for your eyes.
Well, it is obvious!!! You have not inserted your lens properly or there is a foreign body on it and should be washed in solution to clear it.
Both .i have contacts and it did at times make my vision get worse but at times it'd get really good i dont know if its from the contacts or what but even if you get lasic eye surgery you can still in time get a bad vision again
Not exactly but wearing contact lenses glitters your eye -- your eyes feal watery and shining.
Pink eye is usually caused by a virus and does not require medical care and should go away on its own in 5-10 days. Pink eye can be caused by a bacteria and then would need antibiotic ( in the form of eye drops). The most important thing to do is prevent the virus from spreading because it is very c…ontagious so do not share personal items and use good and frequent handwashing. (MORE)
There are a number of fashion or cosmetic contact lenses that just change the color of your iris or that give you another shaped pupil.
go to your eye doctor as soon as possible and request a temporary pair of glasses or get a generic pair, like in cvs or any pharmacy.
well whaen u wake up i know u grt thr red eye thts because your sleepy and it seems thu r crying if u dont wear eye contacts well thts finr u dont need to worry about it
Yes, but it might not be good for their eyes. It is done all the time for movies and special effects. If they are properly fitted by an eye doctor, there shouldn't be any problem with them. They can by used for all sorts of novelty effects such as cat's eyes, or red eyes.
You could but it might make your eye hurt worse. If you do wear them, throw them away after ONE wearing. You will be re-contaminating your eye if you put them on a second time. I know it's hard, but don't rub!! Don't wear any makeup when you have pinkeye. It'll irritate your eyes to apply it. If y…ou don't wear all loose powders--NO ONE does, it's almost impossible to get loose blush and eye shadow anymore--you'll have to throw away your makeup and applicators after you use them one time. And your eyes look so bad nothing is going to enhance them anyway. (MORE)
If your contacts dry up because you've worn them too long, and you do this consistently, this might do it.
You wear contacts and it felt like something was in your eye so you rubed it and now you cant find your contact in your eye what do you do?
It is impossible for a contact to roll behind your eye, so it has either fallen out or folded up under the eye lid
Usually yes, for several reasons. If each of your eyes have different prescriptions, you want to put the correct contact in the correct eye to help you vision in both eyes, instead of having the incorrect prescription in both eyes. Also, your eyes and the back of your eyelids generally are different… shapes (although subtle differences), potentially causing different kinds of erosion on the contacts. In any event, it is better to always wear the same contact in the same eye. (MORE)
Yes, wearing contacts can cause eye damage. If they are worn too long, they can cause the eye to dry out. They can also facilitate the growth of fungus and bacteria. But following the instructions of the eye doctor and taking proper care of the contact lenses will prevent these problems.
You may be over-sensitive to having something in your eye, for instance because your cornea is not perfectly smooth, or you may be over-sensitive or allergic to the protein buildup that happens on contact lenses, or your eyes may not like the restriction of oxygen that contacts cause. There are tho…usands of possibilities, and the kind of contacts can make all the difference too, for instance there are special contacts that allow more oxygen through. (MORE)
You should always get your eyes fitted for contact lenses by your eye doctor, even if you don't need prescriptive lenses. This, combined with safe shopping, will help keep your eyes safe. Circle contact lenses, like any contact lens, is a medical device and needs to be fitted to your eye for a safe …fit and worn under the advice of your eye doctor. There are circle lenses available in non-prescriptive powers. This is a page that shows a before and after as well as an example of FDA approved circle lenses available. I like this site because they ask for prescriptions. (MORE)
Because they have a hard time adjusting because if you wear your contacts more than don't and u take them out one day it will be more blurry for about 30mins so it can adjust and it might hurt
If the contacts are a solid color your eyes will be blue. If they are a transparent blue your eyes will ben some sort of mixture that every website I searched on is too lazy to figure out.
NO YOU SHOULD NOT! Allow your eye and eyelid to heal before reintroducing your contacts.
NO.There is no limit on using color contacts.I got mine on age 10 and im fine.
You can't, once you"re eyes gets used to contacts then naturally they will not be visibly red.
It depends if your eye is itching to have pink eye, if it's not itching see an eye doctor. you could also probably get contacts for pink eyes. but be careful!
I don't know for sure but I do know that when The Beatles first started he had brown eyes and now he has green eyes.
Stay away from others, and drink lots of orange juice. Pink eye is a disease, and is spread! You need to go to the doctor and get a prescription for an ointment to clear up the infection. If you don't have it in both eyes, wash your hands often and try to keep them away from touching your eyes. Was…h your pillowcases and don't allow anyone else to use them while you have it. Pink eye(conjunctivitis) is very contagious and very irritating. In the morning wash your eyes with a solution of warm weak tea and wash your hands afterward very thoroughly. Good luck. (MORE)
i defenatly think you should wear a light pink eyeshadow or a silver or somthing like that
One of the major perks of wearing eye glasses is the decrease risk of eye infection. If Contact lenses are not cleaned correctly, the bacteria from daily wear can cause eye infections. Also, not paying attention to how you apply your lenses can cause damage to your eye.
There are some lenses which you can wear for an year but the replacement scheduler is everyday basis, means that you have to remove them in the night. Lenses which you can wear for an year our bausch and lomb b4/u4.
