Oasys and Corneal Ulcers
 
I know of someone who switched to Acuvue Oasys contacts and developed a corneal ulcer about a month later. She's worn contacts for years and never had a problem with ulcers. Has this brand been known to cause ulcers?

Me, too. I just changed within the past month and was diagnosed today with a corneal ulcer. Ive never had any other problems with my prior contacts (acuVue 2) or infections and I was much more lax about taking the AccuVues out every night. Im going back when this ulcer clears up. Damn it hurts...

It could be an allergic reaction, that really is terrible. I don't know of any other reason something like that would occur.

Wow. That sounds awful. How are you feeling now, KDU?
