For the past month and a half, I have had pain in my left eye when I wear my contacts. I will put the contacts in and it will start to hurt increasingly throughout the day. It feels as if my eye is scratched and it makes my vision in that left eye blurry. Once I take the contact out, the pain goes away within about 30 minutes. At first I thought that my contact was torn so I replaced it with a new one, only to have the same thing happen right away. Of course I have almost completely stopped wearing my contacts, but when I do try them, the problem exists. I would have gone to the eye doctor by now, but I do not any longer have eye insurance and it is very expensive. I am wondering what the problem is since it has not healed.View Thread
