Question New RGP Wearer trying to adapt

I had successful LASIK in 1999 and haven't worn any visual correction since then. Before I had it, I wore soft cls a little bit and glasses, mostly, because I was only nearsighted. But now, I'm a little farsighted and have a little astigmatism, and now I'm beginning to get presbyopic. So RGPs seemed like a better option. I just started wearing them, and they're bothering me so much I'm not sure I can make it through the adaptation period. The central vision is clear, but I'm seeing the edges, and the vision is foggy at the edge, even when I'm looking straight ahead. They also seem to be shifting a lot, but I don't know for sure since I've never worn RGPs. They are Boston ES 9.0 diameter.

Welcome to the board, evilpinklolita. Sorry your lenses aren't doing better. Are they at least comfortable?

Thanks. I saw my eye doctor today and he is going to order the lenses in a 9.3 diameter, instead of the 9.0 that they are now. He said because I have large pupils every time I blink I see the edge of the cl, and the edge looks foggy. As for comfort, they still feel like an ice scraper is working on a particularly stubborn piece of ice on my cornea, but I'm getting used to them and have actually increased my wear time to six hours in just two days! The vision is very sharp in these lenses centrally, so I really think they'll work out great once the fit is all straightened out

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your ability to wear contact lenses that "feel like an ice scraper is working on a particularly stubborn piece of ice" for six hours! I don't think I could do that.

that feeling you are describing is the lens edge interacting with the cornea, and lid margins. Hang in there....its totally normal. But you should not feel sharp pain at any time, which usually means that there are particles underneath your lens.
