Hi Anyone suffered any of these problems since wearing Acuvue Oasys:

*Permanent Redness in eyes
*Very sore eyes in morning
*Inflamed conjunctiva
*Warm,itcy or dry eyes
*Stinging sensation in eyes
*Small white spots under eyelid

I have had this problem for a year and it has gradually got worse to the point I find it hard to get up in the morning because my eyes are so saw.

I know alot of other people are having the same problem

simple google searches bring up lots of problems.

Granted not everyone has problems. But 2 eye doctors I have seen seem to believe that you can not be allergic to contact lenses. I believe you can..I can be allergic to grass pollen or rubber so why not silicone especially in my eyes.

I guess it's the same with any new contact lense they come out with ... there has been no long term study or review.


Please I don't want any trolls posting I have done weeks and weeks of research and there are deffinately problems with silicone hydrogel contact lenses. I wore contact lenses for 4 years non problems then moved to Acuvue Oasys lenses and wham bam suddenly red veins everywhere and swollen eyes.

I am hoping people post below if they have any issues with Acuvue Oasys lenses or anything similar.
