Why do my contacts go out of focus?

Some of the possible causes of blurry vision while wearing contacts include a change in your prescription, deposits (like dirt) on the lens surface, dry eyes, allergies, infections, or other eye health problems.
You might be able to feel your contact lens sitting on your eye. It’s weird but normal! Blink as normally as possible, and apply eye drops if your contacts feel dry or out of placement. You’ll get used to the feeling as you wear your contacts more often.
