Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I reviewed your history.
The presence of blurred and foggy vision with moisture over contact lens requires evaluation to look for tight fit of contact lenses.
Usually tight fitting of contact lenses will cause these symptoms.
Hence I advice you to consult your optometrist or eye doctor for evaluation of size and fitting of the lenses.

Hope this answers your question and the information is helpful to you.

Brief Answer:
Using contact lenses of higher base curve will help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.


Daily disposable contact lenses are usually good and will not cause much problems unlike monthly disposable or other type of lenses.
This problem occurs commonly with long term use of contact lenses because of deposition over the lenses.
Since you are using daily disposable contact lenses this rules out deposition over the lenses.

The other common causes are fit and size of the contact lenses.
In case of tight fit or smaller size there will be decreased oxygen supply to cornea resulting in corneal edema and fogginess of vision.
As I told in my previous answer the most likely cause in your case can be tight fit.

Hence you require change the diameter and base curve of the lenses. If you are using contact lens of base curve of 8.4 you need to go for next base curve that is 8.6. The information regarding the diameter and base curve can be obtained from the lens case and it will be written on it.

I think this may help you in solving the problem.


Hope this answers your question.


Thank you
