There are a myriad of reasons that a person may suffer from blurred vision while wearing contacts. One of the main reasons that they might suffer from the blurred vision is because of an error that was made in the diagnosis of the vision, while resulted in the wrong strength of contacts being prescribed to the patient. This type of human error is one of the most common causes for patients that are suffering from blurred vision while wearing contacts and should be considered first and foremost before other diagnostic measures are taken.
Once the prescription has been confirmed and the patient is still complaining about suffering from blurred vision, it is important to consider other factors that may be at the cause of the blurred vision problems. Some cases of blurred vision can be as simple as strain on the eyes or an infection that has developed in the eye area, where other cases of blurred vision are more complex and include the patient suffering from a disorder that is causing the blurred vision or problems with the optical nerve.
Contact lens wearers that are suffering from blurred vision should first and foremost take a break from the contact lenses that are being worn. This can help to reduce the strain on the eyes if the blurred vision was indeed caused by the contact lenses. In the case that the blurred vision persists, the patient may wish to consider other avenues when it comes to the vision and speak with an optometrist regarding the symptoms that are being experience and how these symptoms are beginning to affect the vision.
Sometimes, it is as simple as changing the brand or type of contact lenses that are being used. Other times, the patient can easily use eye drops to moisten the eye area and reduce irritation. Though it could be a simple fix, the patient should consider that maybe contact lenses aren’t the right solution for their corrective lens needs.
