If your eye vision is bad, can you still get contacts?
My friend was denied contacts because her vision was strong and that the lenses would be too thick. My vision is pretty horrible. When I don't wear my glasses while driving car headlights/taillights look REALLY bright/blurry? I don't know the numbers [ex. 20/20]. Can anyone with slightly bad/really bad vision still wear contact lenses?

it depends on who dad your eyes are

trhat is so weird how ur friend was denied contacts tho xp

thats the point of contacts

Yes, contacts correct your vision. They are pre-prescribed most of the time, meaning that the eye doctor just finds the right prescribed pair of contacts for you. If both eyes are different, then you have to get 2 boxes (both different, one for left and right).

yeah b/c i have REALLY REALLY bad vision!!!! and i got contacts!!!!! when u get contacts and u have them 4 about a week u wont even feel them i've been wearing contacts 4 about 2 years!!! no some contacts are NOT soo thick if u want thin contacts just ask 4 some!!! good luck!!

Yes, in most cases. Your friend however probably has a refractive error that is not conducive to contact wear- such as a moderate to severe astigmatism that is oriented to an axis that would cause the contacts to be difficult as best to keep in.

i wear contacts but they are disposable ones because im only like 3.5 in each eye, but my dad is about 10 in each eye which is pretty bad and he also wears contacts, just they are non-disposable ones so a completely different type to mine. if i were you id just go and ask your optician or mention it in your next eye test

I never heard of being denied bc of thick lenses...i mean its not like they put the same lenses they put in frames in ur eyes...the prescription is in the contact...i think she may have assumed they would deny her without actually visiting the dr.

Yes! My eyes are so bad I have a restriction on my drivers licenses! I will get arrested without one or the 2 contacts or glasses.
I wear contacts.

Yes, in fact contacts work better in most cases on people with a high degree of nearsightedness.

Sure you can. I am partially blind and am able to wear contacts.
