: : Hi,
: : I am a twenty year old sudent who has been trying to become comfortable in contacts for a couple of years. I have been to numerous doctors but I find that no matter what type of lens I try, I get terrible headaches in my temples and along the sides of my head. The headaches are pretty intense and take a couple of days to subside. I was wondering if anyone else had a similiar reaction and whether a solution was found. I have been in a ll types of lenses but I want to keep trying until I find something that works. Please let me know if you have any information. Thanks,

: I am also unable to wear contacts due to headaches. I wore them for years when I was a teenager. I went on birth control pills when I was 19 and haven't been able to wear my contacts with out headaches since. Just a thought. :)
Hi I have been wearing soft disposable contact lenses since the 8th grade and then two years ago i went on Ortho Tricline and I had eye troubles since. I recently stopped taking the pill and now a month and a half later can now wear contact lenses again.
