    I have been wearing the Focus Night & Days for a few months on a daily wear
    basis. After an initial adjustment I have found them to be pretty good
    although my eyes do feel somewhat fatigued by the end of the day. I think
    I'm on my third pair. For each pair I've had some difficulty with my right
    eye about mid way through the month. This has happened with each pair but I
    suspect it is coincidental. At first I thought that it was the lens and I
    would only be able to wear them for a 2 week period. I changed lenses (left
    to right and right to left) and it was still my right eye that was
    uncomfortable so figured it was the eye rather than the lens. I gave my eyes
    a bit of a rest and they were ok after that. I went on to wear the lenses
    for about 5 - 6 weeks with no further problem.

    Last night I was out and the right eye seemed off - as if the lens wasn't
    sitting properly. I sort of moved it around on my eye and it got a bit
    better. By the time I got home it was a bit uncomfortable. I left my
    lenses off this morning and put them in about noon. In a couple of hours
    the right eye seemed out of focus again so I removed them. I am now wearing
    my glasses but I am aware of a slight sensation in the right eye - possibly
    dryness. I am going to put them in a little later as I have my running group
    and I hate to wear glasses for running. Any idea what is happening here. I
    use the AOSept system and have been fairly careful with the cleaning. If it
    turns out like the other occasions, the discomfort will simply go away.
    Could it be dryness? It seems odd that it happens midway through the life
    of the lens. It would be more understandable to me if it happened at the
    end of the 4 week period. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Dr. L.,
    Thanks for the information. I thought I had a fit problem when I first
    tried the lenses but my optometrist insisted that the fit was "perfect". It
    must be dryness although I wonder if these symptoms would occur is the lens
    was inside out.

    Yes, indeed the symptoms would be similar.
