Why some contact lenses comes in 48% water content while the other lens comes in 38%? is there a huge difference?
Different lenses come in different water content which can be between 30%-50% water content. In general, the higher the water content the more moist the lenses are and the more oxygen is allowed to pass through the eyes which results in better and more comfortable wear.
How do I know if my lenses are inside out?
There are generally three ways to tell if your contacts are inside out. First, you could place the lens on the tip of one finger such that it resembles a bowl. Check if the edges are smooth or if they flare outwards. If the latter is true, then your lens is indeed inside out. Second, you could place saline solution into the “bowl” of your lens drop by drop. If the edges start to curl inward, then the lens is in the right position. Otherwise, you’ve got it inside out. Third, you could place the lens on the crease of your palm just below your pinkie finger. Slowly, curl your fingers inward. If the edges of the lens also roll inwards, then it’s in the right position. Otherwise, it is inside out.
Why are the lenses moving so much in my eye when I blink?
If the contact lenses are moving and uncomfortable in your eye this means that the lenses are inside out. You need to remove them immediately and invert them before you put them on again.
Should I replace a lens that has a slight tear on the edge even when it doesn’t bother me at all?
You most definitely should. Regardless of whether you’re bothered by the tear or not, a damaged lens has to be replaced. For all you know, it could already be causing damage to your eyes that you just haven’t noticed yet. Where your eyes are concerned, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
