- Improper Fit
Though an average size of human iris is 14.00mm with 8.6 base curve, there are variations; since no two human beings are identical- not even the twins. Contact lenses are manufactured considering the average dimensions that cater to the majority. Contacts that are not fitted properly may continue to dislodge from the iris. They keep moving, making it difficult to blink. Vision may be compromised too.
A properly fitted contact lens should move swiftly with each blink. Too little or too much of the movement indicates improper fitting which either turn eyes dry or irritated & inflamed. Please note, people with seemingly no insensitivity should be able to wear circle contacts for more than 8 hours. (Computer users report significant discomfort since digital screens aid strain on nerves that lead to discomfort. Using re-wetting drops usually relieve the strain)
Allergies are seasonal. Some people find contact lenses uncomfortable with the onset of spring when a higher quantity of pollen particles are found suspended in the air. Contact lenses have minor projections that help them floating on the cornea. These very same projections also facilitate external particles from environment to latch to & contaminate contacts that may cause discomfort, particularly an annoying sting-y feeling.
Anti-allergen eye drops are used but you will have to give your eyes a rest for the couple of days. Talk to your doctor if you fear serious vision problems without prescription contacts. Doctors may alternate you & prescribe daily disposable contact lenses to help you battle through the seasonal allergies.
