It is important that you are aware of anything not being as it should be.
Ask yourself these three questions:
- Are my lenses uncomfortable during the day?
- Is there any redness to my eyes?
- Is my vision blurring?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it is important that you remove your lenses and speak to your practitioner for advice.
