Question: Two days ago I noted a change in my vision in my right eye resulting in a cloudy visual field which is relieved partially by blinking but it returns momentarily. Visually it is as if I have a slightly cloudy contact lens in that eye, moving across the surface of my eye, but this is not the case.

Brief Answer:
These symptoms indicate contact lens related problems.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care Magic

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

I reviewed your history.
The symptoms mentioned by you indicate contact lens related problems. This can be because of associated corneal edema and corneal dryness.

Hence you need to consult your optometrist or ophthalmologist for evaluation of fitting of contact lens and its correction accordingly.

Hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank you

I have not worn contact lenses for at least 3 years. I wear spectacles now for vision correction. Therefore, could this still be related to contact lenses? Even when I did wear lenses I wore one only in my left eye (the eye not currently affected by this condition) for mono-vision correction. Thank you. XXXXXXX XXXX

Brief Answer:
Corneal dryness / dry eyes needs to be ruled out.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Madam,

Thank you for the follow up question.

I reviewed your history.
If you are not using the contact lenses now, then it indicates corneal dryness as it is getting relieved by blinking and use of re-wetting/artificial tears eye drops.

Hence this requires evaluation for dry eyes and treatment accordingly by the use of artificial tears eye drops.

Hope this answers your question.

Thank you
With regards

Hi, recently I have discovered that my eyes are red after just several hours of wearing contact lenses, the vision gets a little blurry sometimes when I have them on as well, I have astigmstism and is wearing toric lenses, I have also discovered that my right eyes eyesight may be better than my left, because the left eye is always blurrier with either contact lenses or glasses...

I admit I have worn my contact lenses for 12 hours before, and my eyes get really red and a little painful before for a several times... But each time it seemed to take care of itself and recovered... So I didn't see the doctor, but now I seem to be suffering with blurrier eyesights even with glasses, is there any explanation to this? Thank you!!!

Hi my name is Denise, Im a 41 year old female who a week ago found out that I have acute angle closure glaucoma. I had emergency surgery last Thursday and have been on medication for one week. I stopped taking as of yesterday per doctors instructions. For the last couple of days I have been seeing white moon shaped flashes but more today than the last two days, is this normal or should I seek medical attention?
