I have keratoconus in my right eye and what the doctor said was a slight astigmatism in my left eye. I just got fitted for hard contact lenses. I have heard it takes up to a couple of weeks for people to get used to their lenses. Does this getting used to include getting adjusted to the vision because it seems that i am seeing more clearly without the contact lenses in. My right diseased eye seems to benefit from the contact because my vision in the eye was really bad however, the left eye is almost worse with the contact in. Do you think my opthamologist might have the wrong prescription for my left eye? Also some cloudyness that doesn't seem to go away. taking my left lense out and leaving my right one in i see better but still need to adjust to my vision because i have never worn glasses or contacts.
