Thread: Vertex Toric severe disconfort

    Default Vertex Toric severe disconfort

    I have been wearing soft contact lenses for the last 5 years. There is a different brand on each eye. On the left eye is Acuvue Advance, on the right eye is Vertex Toric. I値l try to explain the problem which I知 having. It is with the right eye, the Vertex. For the last couple of months, from 4 to 7 days after inserting a new Vertex lens, it becomes difficult to maintain it in the eye. According to the prescription they are to be worn for two weeks.
    The difficulty which I feel in the eye is as if the lens instead of floating freely on the cornea some how it stops moving and bends. Making it impossible to see thru the
    right eye. Then when I remove the lens, there is redness in the eye and a burning sensation. I do not have this problem with the left eye, which is the Acuvue lens.
    I need to know if this is a problem with the eye or a problem with the vertex lens.
    My thanks in advance for whoever can help me with this problem.
    p.s. Notice yesterday after posting my concern that when the lens began to give problems. The lens floated towards the top
    of the cornea. Off center. I tried to remedy the problem by putting a couple of drops of "Systane lubricant eye drops". Which help but only temporarily.

    Hello Water. I'm sorry no one has responded to your question until now. How are your contacts these days? Are you still having problems with your lenses getting stuck and bending?

    Hello Walter Mitty

    A belated welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your lens problems.

    First question. Are you wearing these lenses 24/7 for 2 weeks and not taking them out at night? These lenses a Methafilcon A and are NOT designed for wearing 24/7, as the oxygen permeability is relatively low. It will damage your eyes if you try to wear them continuously.

    If you do take them out at night, how do you clean the lenses? It sounds as if the Vertex Toric lens may be drying out or is just not clean after 4-7 days.

    The Acuvue Advance is made of galyfilcon (silicone hydrogel) and is a bit more oxygen permeable, though probably not suitable for 24/7 wearing. Best to check with your Eye Care Specialist.

    So you've been wearing the Acuvue Advance/Vertex Toric combination for five years and this is just happening now? The obvious question is: have you begun to do anything different just before the problems began? Different cleaning solution, different wearing schedule, anything like that? Maybe the Vertex lens is being made differently than before, can anyone comment on that?
