I've been wearing contacts (never worn glasses
) for about 13 years now, and using Focus Dailies since then . The last time my prescription changed was about 8 years ago. At that time, my right eye went from a -3.50 to -3.75. I began wearing my new lenses
(same brand, different power) and noticed that I would experience "ghosting" in my right eye at night, but not when I was exposed to brighter light. My optometrist
said this was due to the fact that my pupils dilated larger than the corrective area of the lens
, and offered no solutions. Eventually I learned to deal with the ghosting to where it was not noticeable.
Recently, I've noticed that when using my right eye only that I seem to have a bit of trouble focusing at a distance. I can still see 20/20, but if I'm only using my right eye it takes me a second to get it right. I've also noticed the "ghosting" seems to have returned. My last eye exam was a few months ago.
My questions: Could the ghosting/focus issue be related?
If the ghosting is related to my pupil size, is there another brand of lenses that could potentially work better?
I've read about astigmatism being a cause of both of these issues, is this a possibility as well?
