    I had a problem a month or two ago where for some reason when I put my contacts in they were really foggy. They were that bad I couldn't wear them as I couldn't see, I cleaned them and resoaked them and it made no difference. I managed to get a new pair from the opticians.

    The current pair are beginning to go the same, though not that just blurry and I seem to be blinking a lot more.

    Anyone know if there's a reason for this?

    What type of lenses are they? Are they continuous wear/gas permeable? If not it might be that you have them in your eyes too long. Remember if they aren't continuous wear you should only wear them for 8 hours a day - 12 at a push.

    If you do have gas permeable lenses it could be an eye infection like some form of keratitis. Go see your optician if the problem persists.

    Also it's best not to wear the contacts if you suspect and eye infection.

    Your blinking to try and clear the fog except it's not the lens it's film over eye most likely infections at front. Stop wearing your contacts lenses. Go and see optician asap to get eyes checked..

    Do you see nice and sharp with your glasses or does the fog/ blur exist with your glasses as well..?

    Thanks for the replies. I went to see my optician and I had them in the wrong eyes! Never would've thought that!
