    I have recently started wearing contact lenses. Acuvue 2's. My prescription
    states a BC of 8.3 but I just noticed that the box of lenses that I received
    from the optometrist is 8.7. I have worn them for about a month now. I still
    have a couple left, should I switch immediatly to a BC 8.3 lense or would it
    be ok to use up the ones I have left and then buy the correct ones next? I
    havent noticed any discomfort from these.

    Did the doc write an RX for 8.3 and give you a box of 8.7? Did you buy
    lenses elsewhere? The best way to find out what direction to take is to
    pick up the telephone and ask your doctor.

    The doc wrote a prescription for 8.3 and his assistant gave me a box that
    was 8.7. I was on vacation so returning the boxes isnt an option, plus I
    only have 2 sets of lenses left. I'm wondering if I can just use up these
    last 2 sets.
