Difference between left & right contacts?
I started wearing contacts a few months ago. I have horrible eyesight and they help me so much. My dad ordered some boxes of the contacts for me and I have been wearing them for a few months now. I have already gone through one box and now I am on my second one. When I first got them, I was wondering why the contacts in the box didn't tell me which one was for your right eye and which is for your left because the ones I had worn for the trial had.
I now feel like a total idiot because just the other day, I was getting a new pair of contacts and I noticed that on the box, there was a little sticker that had an R on it. I figured that meant Right. So I looked at one of the other boxes I had and noticed it had an L on it. I went a couple months wearing contacts for only my left eye and now a few weeks with only right eye contacts. Is that bad? Is there a difference? No one told me I had two different subscriptions for each of my eyes, so it can't be that, right? What's with the stickers?
My mom told me that it was fine and that the eye doctor was probably just trying to be helpful or something and that there is probably no problem wearing two right contacts. But I'm a little worried. She has never worn contacts before, what does she know? Is there a difference?
