    I've just bought some Bausch Lomb soft contact lenses in Bangkok for
    $30 - with no instructions.

    Problem is that they seem to work fine except I can't now see close up
    to well whereas I could with my glasses. For instance the screen on
    this PC is a bit blurred. Is this normal?

    Secondly, they gave me two 2.25 lenses but here was the prescription:

    R - 2.25 - 0.75 x 180
    L - 2.50 - 0.25 x 180

    Does that seem correct?

    Lastly, my eyes seem to blurr up for a few seconds every couple of
    minutes. Is this normal with new lens? It's the first contacts I've
    ever had.

    You get what you pay for. Stop using the lenses and see a contact lens
    fitter, pay for a fitting and aftercare and your problems will be properly

    Back in my accommodating days, I obtained contacts from a qualified
    professional and had this problem. Many people get the impression that
    accommodation is more difficult with contacts, and that reading glasses
    may be the solution.
