I had the same issue! I am currently on those same eye drops and my left eye has permanent damage from these now. I am using the drops to try to get some of the blurriness in my vision to go away but I won't be able to wear contacts ever again because the damage is so severe. At this point I'm just hoping to be able to get some of my vision back. I am 27 and cannot even drive at night with glasses on because my vision is so distorted.

I've got something similar going on. My vision has been permanently altered as well.

My story starts in August of 2017. I went to my optometrist for my yearly eye exam and they decided to change my prescription from Air Optix Night & Day to Air Optix HydraGlide. After a month of wearing the new contacts from the samples given during the apointment; I put in a fresh pair from the ones I ordered.

Within a day my eyes were unbearably irritated. Red, puffy, itchy. It caused me to constantly blink which just made it worse. I went back to the optometrist 4-5 different times. They tried multiple different brands of contacts and my eyes rejected every one of them. I even went back to Air Optix Night & Day and they also irritate my eyes within 2 hours of putting them in.

I am 35 and have been wearing monthly disposables since I was 15 and never had an issue.

I have been wearing glasses all the time now, but I have noticed my vision has changed. I am going to go in for another eye exam to see if my prescription has changed even though it has been stable since I was 20 years old.

I also went to an ophthalmologist. Who said it may be dry eyes. He gave me an allergy drop and punctal plugs to help provide more moisture.

No luck.
