Blurry vision after long time of wearing contacts?
Blurry vision is a common issue that many contact lens wearers experience, and it can occur for various reasons. In this blog, we will discuss the key factors that can cause blurry vision when wearing colored contacts and their corresponding solutions to ensure your eye health and visual clarity.
Blurry vision when wearing colored contacts can sometimes be related to prescription issues. If the contacts you are wearing do not match your specific prescription needs, it might lead to distortions in your eyesight.
Solution: Make sure you get a valid prescription for colored contact from your eye care professional. The prescription will usually address your unique vision requirements. Do also note that sharing lenses with others is unhygienic and can increase the risk of blurred vision.
2. Tired Eyes
Another common factor that will cause blurry vision while wearing colored contacts is eye fatigue. Just like your body, your eye can feel tired after a long day and become fatigued, especially when you are wearing colored contacts for an extended period.
Solution: Practice the 20-20-20 rule, you should take a 20-second break by looking at something 20 feet away every 20 minutes. This can help reduce eye strain. Besides, make sure you follow the recommended wear time for your colored contacts and most important, never sleep with colored contacts on.
3. Protein Deposits
Protein deposits usually accumulate on the surface of your colored contact lenses over time. The protein deposits might cause your contacts to become less clear, leading to a blurry vision. Protein deposits are more likely to happen if you don't clean and care for your contacts properly.
Solution: You must follow a strict cleaning and disinfection routine for the hygiene of your colored contacts. Regularly replace the multipurpose solution in your lens case. Rub your lenses gently with the multipurpose solution before storing them in the case. This will help to prevent protein from building up and ensure a clearer vision.
In summary, to prevent blurred vision while wearing colored contacts, ensure you have the correct prescription, combat eye fatigue with breaks and limited wear time, and maintain proper cleaning routines to prevent protein deposits. These steps will keep your vision clear and comfortable.
