accuve oasis. slight halo around lights. No
Do you have discharge from your eyes?Do your eyes get red?Do you see the halos all the time?
Do you also see the halos when wearing glasses?
no , no, lately yes, yes
Sattler's veil is thought to be caused by lack of oxygen to the eyes. This is less of an issue with newer contact lenses. Acuvue Oasys has excellent oxygen permeability, so I wouldn't expect that to be a cause.
Halos around lights can be cause by cataracts or clouding of the natural lens inside your eyes. Most people by age 50 will have some degree of cataracts. Since you have these symptoms with and without your contact lenses, I suspect this may be the cause.
any other reason for halos
A thorough eye exam can certainly confirm this. For mild cataracts, all that may be needed is an updated glasses/contact lens prescription. If more severe, then surgery is an option.
You can have dry eyes, outdated glasses/contact lens prescriptions.
Another cause of corneal edema and swelling resulting in halos can be Fuchs endothelial dystrophy.
To differentiate between these causes, however, you would need an eye exam.
Do you have any other questions I can answer for you?
