Stupid question for contact wearers! These suckers feel weird and stuff keeps going out of focus. I have acuvue 2's and they are (i guess) soft plastic. Is this normal or what?
Not stupid, and not normal at all. Go right back to your optician/opthalmologist and get this taken care of.
There are a number of reasons this could be happening, but in my experience, it sounds like the lenses aren't fitting to your eyes properly. My eyes have a weird contour (some dips in odd places) so getting lenses that fit well was a big challenge. Lenses with the same curvature from different manufacturers (or even different types within one manufacturer) would fit differently. Or, it could simply be because the optician didn't do a good job checking for the curvature of your eyes and went with "close enough."
Is this one pair or do you have the same issue with multiple pairs? Manufacturing isn't an exact science for these things and I've had a few bad lenses in a lot.
MonteCristo's point about putting them on inside out is another good one. Been there, done that!
