Why Are My Contacts Blurry?

Deposited on contact lenses

Debris and protein deposits build up on the surface of contact lenses are the most common reasons why contact lenses look cloudy or hazy. The easiest way to see if there is a problem is to take the lenses out and compare the vision of the glasses. If your vision is clearer in your glasses, the contact lenses are probably dirty.

Dryness of contact lenses or eyes

When dryness is the cause of blurred vision, vision usually becomes clearer after blinking or in a contact lens rewetting drop. If your eyes are still dry, please go to see an eye doctor. Dry eye disease can be treated with prescription and over-the-counter medications.

A change in your prescription

As we get older, our prescriptions change over time. If you feel like your vision has changed, recording your symptoms and tell your ophthalmologists.

If contact lenses are worn longer than the suggested usage time, they are likely to accumulate and deposit proteins in their surface area. Even with careful cleaning, replace the lenses according to the recommended schedule to prevent build-up and reduce the chance of damage to your eyes.

An eye health problem

When you remove contact lenses, if you find that your vision is still blurred, you may have more serious eye problems. Corneal swelling, infections, inflammation, cataracts, retinal problems, and many other conditions may be the cause of blurred vision. If this blurred vision occurs, consult an ophthalmologist immediately!
