Blurry Vistion
An_244677 posted:
I used a new mascara the other day and didn't notice any problems. Two days later one eye was red and vision was blurry. Could this be an allergic reaction to the mascara? I immediately took the contacts out and am wearing my glasses now (and hating it). I have tossed that tube of mascara.
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
It could be the mascara, it could be related to the contact lenses, it could be unrelated to either.

You are very smart to leave out the contact lenses.

If the redness and blurred vision goes away quickly, you can try a new pair of contact lenses. (assuming you wear soft contacts) and avoid that type of mascara.

If the redness and blurred vision does not go away quickly, you need to see an ophthalmologist.
