My contact lens woes

Life used to be good with my contact lenses.i think the last time things were good was in 2008 to 2009. I had the CIBA Vision Night & Day and looking at my e-mail, I ordered them last on July 25th 2008:

Then a year-ish later I ordered replacement contact lenses, but they were Air Optix Night & Day Aqua this time (in between I got another box of 6 from the eye doctor):

Not a big deal I thought at the time. But I Was wrong. When I started using them sometime a little later (after finishing up my non-aqua supply), they were killing me. I started looking online and realized I wasn’t the only one. Here was one page I commented on ( http://www.straightfromthedoc.com/50226711/allergic_to_contact_lens.php) on 2/26/10. I was looking for advice and saw the BioMedics55 and ProClear mentioned.

I’m not sure what I did for that time. I know on 2/21/2010 I saw a new Eye Doctor at Visionworks and we tried out some contacts. The Contact Lens prescription wasn’t filled out until 5/16/2011 so I think that’s when we finally decided on the contacts. I am not sure of the exact ones.

In early 2011, as my supply of contacts was wrapping up, I tried out a new eye doctor and told her about my contact lens woes. I tried out a few different ones with her and we settled on the Biofinity Contact Lens. On 6/6/2011 I ordered a box of 6 contact lenses:

But over the past so many weeks, I’ve been noticing trouble. I thought it was an eye infection or something else, but I think it’s the contacts causing the problems. So now I have to figure out what I can do.
