Another issue I had a few years back, and it was sort of the same thing, they said I had an infection in my eye due to wearing contacts for too long. I guess there is a lack of oxygen and the blood vessles get infected. Nothng serious. I had to wear my glasses for a week while putting drops in, and it cured it.
Sucks, I wanted to get laser eye surgery a few months back. I was all excited to not have to wear contacts and glasses anymore, but due to my astigmatism, and also because the lense of my right eye is a little flat, they said I can never do it, or at least Lasik won't do it. They said unless technology changes and there are advancments for these issues, it is unsafe.
Same here, Shaf, except in both eyes to varied degrees, and same on all three of Nan's points of experience. That had to be painful, Nan. I didn't develop an infection from the vascularization (your blood vessels crawl toward the sclera to get oxygen). I still have ghost veins, though, from when they receded.
Shaf, my causes were astigmatism and aging. I typically stick to glasses Fri.-Sun. and contacts and readers the rest of the week (also bailed on laser surgery). Correcting for the astigmatism and a change in my eye shape, Acuvue Moist lenses, BioTrue solution, and regular (4x/day) application of artificial tears has allowed me to wear lenses more comfortably and more frequently than I have in about 15 years.
