    I've worn glasses for a few years and have thought several times that it would be nice to not have to keep up with them. This summer I finally took the time to get fitted for contacts and things were going fine. For about 3 weeks. One day, after 3 weeks of wearing them and doing my hardest not to break the rules (don't wear overnight, don't reuse solution, don't swim in them,etc.), I had a sudden sensitivity to light. That was the last time I wore the contacts. After the most painful 5 weeks of my life spent trying to combat the eye infection, I had to have a cornea transplant due to a bacterial infection that did not respond to any treatment. I was down to only seeing hand signals in the bad eye, being in excruciating pain and there were no other options. At this point, they don't know what the bacteria was or how I got it, but the evidence of course points to the contacts for one reason or another.

    My question is, is there anyone else out there with this experience recently? Is there anyway I got this from an infected contact? Prior to this, I had zero problems with my eye and I have a hard time believing that I was able to screw it up this bad as careful as I was being with these stupid things. I wore the Bausch and Lomb Biotrue Oneday dailies, but never will again.
