I just put in a new brand of contact lenses than what i always use to wear and now my vision isnt as good even though its the same prescription? Is that normal and they just need a few hours to adjust? My reading vision is fine but distance is blurry. I double checked the prescription

Did you change lens brands somehow without talking to your doctor? Usually if you switch brands they give you a trial set for a week or so, then you go back in to make sure everything is alright.

I'd call your doc if you have any questions.

Who knows the actual prescription may not match what's on the label. I wouldn't be surprised if you got defective contact lens. I once opened a 6 month pair that was warped. Perhaps it was the result of improper production or improper storage at the store. I was unable to get an exchange from the store or the maker.

Kind of hard to determine what's going on with so little info.

When was your last exam?

What type of CLs are they?

Are they the same power in each eye? Maybe you accidentally switched them.

Did a doc recently give you those sample trial CLs?

Too many variables.

You have break in new contact lenses. Are you blinking a lot? Making a lot of really exaggerated eye movements? If not, you should start now. If so, ease up. You don't want to crack them by overworking them before they've warmed up.

You should call your eye doctor and they should be able to help you figure out what is going on...
