    Nope, its related to contact lenses.

    Not holding anyone to anything, just need an opinion.

    You will be surprised . many many contact lense wearers on the forum.
    You will get your answer.
    Optomotrists will not give free advise. They are professionals and earn their living bwo.

    Okay

    So I have been wearing Biofinity lenses for 3 years.

    Last week I go for a check up as its been a while.

    I get told, you were provided with the wrong script originally.

    Was on:

    RL: -5.25 B/C: 8.6
    LL: - 4.25 B/C: 8.6

    I was told by the new optometrist the above was way too strong.

    I was prescribed the attached. He has now changed the strength AND moved me over to the Toric version.

    Been wearing them since saturday and I am getting headaches and it doesnt seem 100%. I did however
    wear the old lenses for years at the significantly stronger levels.

    Is it going to take a while for my eyes to adjust hence the headaches? Or did I get knobbed again?

    Thanks

    One Pro won't comment on another Pro's prescription. At least not in public

    Thank you for the responses.

    I have received a Pm from a professional which I will read again carefully this morning.

    Looks like I have just burnt R2k as I buy my lenses in SA as they are that much cheaper then Gabs. My medical aid does not cover it oh well
