I've also been having multiple issues with my eyes within the last year of wearing these contacts. Went to my primary care doctor because the reaction was so concerning.
She said to get a different brand of contacts. I'm waiting to see my eye doctor, but decided to research issue online. Was both shocked and relieved that this was happening to so many others. Seems to me these contacts should be recalled and customers given their money back.
Isn't that what would happen with any other product???
Our eye health is serious! I'm surprised we're not seeing ads on TV searching for victims to sue the company for damages.
Air Optix - These lenses are horrible!
by EquableBarb #14715791.5
I have worn soft contacts for over 25 years. This is the first brand that has caused me so many issues!!!
I put a fresh pair in on Monday, and today is Thursday- the left lens already is blurry and has a smudge or something on it that I have to remove the lens and clean three to 4 times a day just to see! It's awful! It's almost like a film that clouds the middle of the lens and looks like a finger print.
It is unbearable. I have a year's supply of this junk and I'm going to have to replace them with something usable and throw away this money.

Over 40 years I have worn soft contact lenses and have experienced all the hassels maintaining the old lenses. I had to heat my lenses in a device that cleaned the lenses over several hours. Long story short, my 55 year old eyes no longer focus very well and my...
Alcon - Strength of contacts don't seem to match prescription
by RundownTigerShark383 #1470494
Contacts from several of my individual packages, do not seem to be the strength that they are supposed to be. I put in a new pair today and my vision was SO blurred.
I finally had to take them out and put on some reading glasses. I had this problem with another package and thought maybe I put the one for reading and the one for distance, in the wrong eyes, so I switched them. That was not the problem.
I am seriously considering asking for another brand, the next time I see my doctor. I don't like the idea of paying for something that has a problem like this.

I spent a year and multiple visits to different doctors due to an extremely itchy right eye with mucoid discharge and bumps underneath the eyelid forming a perfect circle right where the lens typically would lay (called "cobblestones" by the last doctor). I was first...
Air Optix - Over half won't focus
by PissedConsumer1440724 #1440724
Been wearing these for years but as of lately, at least half of every box will not focus. It's not my eyes as the same lens is either sharp or blurry in both eyes. Been ordering them online so idk if they are of a lesser quality or the company has gone downhill.
Air Optix - HORRIBLE LENSES
by SparseFly254 #14886471.3
4 eye infections from these. I was dumb enough to buy 2 years worth of these!
They are have to be the worst lenses ever made! They irritate your eyes and cause infections. DO not buy these!

I tried Air Optix plus HydraGlyde as a sample. I wore them for a day and a half. The first day was good. A few hours into the second day, my left eye got really sore and then started to get watery. I finally took the contact out of that eye because I couldn't stand it....
