Below are photos of the underside of the lids of patients who overwear their contact lenses and don’t replace them when they’re supposed to. These lids have inflammatory bumps on them that make the contact lenses move, the vision fluctuate, and mucous come out of the eye. Nothing like mucous coming out of your eye when you’re on a date!
GPC takes months to get rid of, and sometimes years. We have to use more expensive contact lenses thereafter and you have to use expensive drops and care solutions to try to fix the problem.
Bottom line? Please replace your contact lenses when you’re supposed to. If you can’t afford to replace your lenses monthly, don’t get contact lenses. These are your eyes. Compromise elsewhere!
