Angry I'm Mad...

I'm so mad. I went and got an eye exam last week for contacts. They called me yesterday and said my contacts were in. I thought "Wow not even a week that's cool".
So I go pick them up today, got home and put them in.
#1 I think the script is wrong cause it gave me an instant headache.
#2 The darn thing didn't even fit !!!!!!! The one in my left eye is fine but the one in my right eye keeps sliding around. I blink and I can't see into the contact falls back in place. I move my eyes left and right and the contact didn't move with my eye like it was supposed to. The contacts are green so I kept seeing green in my vision when I moved my eyes. And they're SUPPOSED to make my eyes look green. They STILL looked brown to me!!!!
Sorry, just had to vent. First thing tomorrow I'm taking them back and throwing a fit!

no it wasn't upside down (they're round so there is no upside down... is there???). it wasn't inside out and yes my glasses were off lol. i never had that problem with my contacts before. i don't know if it was too big or too small? i just know it didn't move with my eye like it's supposed to. it's like my eye moved and the contact stayed where it was.

I'm surprised they didn't have you put them in there at the eye place to be certain everything was ok.

I do not blame you middie. Your eye doctor should have had you put them in with him present to show you how and help you with problems. I would give me an earfull, especially if he charges you for an office visit. Keep us informed, hope all works out.

What kind of contacts were they? I've had rigid gas permeable lenses that are incredibly easy to get in and out but if they slide off center you'd think someone was screwing a red hot needle into your eye!

Inside out? I've had my accuvues on for over an hour before they started sliding. They're so thin it's hard to tell sometimes.:)
