Default Contacts Moving Around

My contact lenses feel like they are moving around on my eye, which makes my vision blurry and is annoying. What can I do about this?

Hello again Rlvavdaan. Besides the contact lens moving, does you eye feel okay? There's not redness, itching and/or dry? Maybe this will help:

"It's . . . possible that you have developed a condition called giant papillary conjunctivitis. This is an auto immune allergic type response to the presence of the contact lens and or deposits on the lens. With GPC, underside of the upper lid develops big (giant) bumps (papilla) due to allergic inflammation of the tissue under the upper lid called the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis). GPC causes the lid to produce excessive mucous which deposits the contact lens and makes it feel dry. Because the lens is deposited the lid tends to grab hold of it rather than slide over it with a blink, therefore causing the lens to displace. Once you have developed GPC it tends to become chronic. You should go back and see you eye doctor. There are treatments available to control GPC. Hope this helped."

Oh my gosh I have the exact same problem. I've seen a walmart eye doc this is my first time in contacts and either my eyes are not designed for contacts or she's not fitting me right? I've tried Oaysis, air optics and blurry vision, moving contacts. She said this is highly unusual. Why can't I see clearly with contacts?

Do you have the other symptoms of GPC mentioned above by dragongirl81?

Well, I hope you find out what's keeping you from wearing your contact lenses comfortably. Let us know.

Hi fuzzy. It's sexy.

How are your eyes doing now? Is your vision still blurred when you try to wear contact lenses?

That's good. Hopefully we can rule out GPC.

Thanks for asking Sexy

Well it seems I am one of the 5% that cannot wear them. What it is that my cornea is pretty flat. According to the eye doc on the very end of the normal leaning towards pretty flat. so if I wear say an 8.7 base curve not only does it hurt but it does not directly press against the eye. When I go 9.0 base curve it moves all over the place. Sort of like placing two flat objects together they don't stay together. With a normal eye it's like a bowl on a bowl and they cling and stay together.

What can ya do? He would not fit me for gas permeables because he did not feel I would be a good candidate.

RLvavdaan how are you? Did you find a solution?

Good question, fuzzyeyeball. What can you do? I hate to say it but if looks like you're not a good candidate for contact lenses.

Can you get a base curve that's between 8.7 and 9.0? Do they come in 8.8 or 8.9?

Have you tried going to a different doctor for a second opinion? If you have, did you tell the second doctor what the first one said?
