Default RGP Contacts Get Cloudy Right Away

Can anybody tell my why you could put in a fresh pair of your hard contacts and immediately experience clouded vision? Could it be excessive protein build up? Is it something wrong with the eye or the contact lens? Or both? Or neither?

Default RGP Contacts Get Cloudy Right Away

If your contact lenses get cloudy "right away" then it's probably not protein. More likely it's something called "corneal edema."
When you put the gas perm lenses in, your corneas--those little "windows" in front of your pupils--begin to swell from lack of oxygen. Your vision gets cloudy and so you take your contacts out to see why, and your corneas can breathe again. You put the contacts back in and it starts all over.
What to do? Talk to your eye doctor and tell him or her what you're experiencing. He/She will give you a different type of contact that will let in more oxygen and that will help keep the corneas from swelling. I understand Boston XO is a good brand.
Good luck!
