Hi doctor,

I am a contact lens and glass user. I had not worn my contacts for three days but changed the solution each day. I put my contacts on today and noticed that it looked like I saw a white haze. The weird thing about it has I only noticed it when an area is not well. I thought that it is because of the bright lighting. I do not see a white haze when I am wearing my glasses; just if I look up at a light, it looks hazy. I am experiencing the white haze more with my contacts lenses.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There could be two reasons. The lenses may have micro scratches, and hence the blurring with contacts only.
  • Sometimes the cornea starves for oxygen on using lenses causing epithelial haze or punctate spots. This can lead to haze. This happens because of protein built up on the lens.
  • It would be ideal to change your pair. But before that, you can try using lubricating eye drops like Systane ultra (Propylene glycol).
