A lot of birth control pills have "difficulty wearing contacts" as a possible side effect, but I can't find much information on what happens/why it happens/how it feels. I've been having moderate to severe eye pain since around the time that I started taking birth control for the first time, and I cannot wear contacts for very long at all. The pain is only in one eye, though. I've been to an ophthalmologist and she prescribed steroids for my eye pain -- it worked, briefly, but as soon as I stopped taking the drops, the pain came back.
My question is: has anybody experienced difficulty wearing contacts that was related to birth control? What did it feel like? Did you have to stop taking pills? I'm not sure if my problem is related to my BC, but I'm so frustrated and scared -- I'd like to narrow some things down.
