#HowCanYouTell if Your #Contacts Are #TooTight?

http://www.lens101.com/contact-lens-care-questions/3276-tell-contacts-tight.html


A common problem with people who wear contacts is when they don’t fit right. If someone’s contact lenses are too tight, is there some way they can tell? Do tight contacts cause pain? What are the long term effects of tight-fitting contact lenses?
The funny thing is, contacts that are too tight often feel quite comfortable. However, wearing tight contacts for too long can cause hypoxia, which is what it’s called when the corneas don’t get enough oxygen. If there are symptoms of a tight fit, it’s usually the eye feeling “dry” at the end of the day. It’s not really dryness, though, it’s that hypoxia thing I mentioned earlier.
