  1. I am llocate at Singapore. Recently I had brought a contact lens brand Cooper Vision Mediflex 55. I had been using other brands contact lens for a long time without any problem. The first day I wear the Cooper Vision Mediflex 55 contact, my eyes start to be uncomfortable feel itchy and pain. not long my eyes turn to red and very red. I try an new pair of contact lens and stil get the same effect. please advise what I can do for it ??


  2. I used to wear Ultra Flex 55 contacts by CooperVision and I developed a serious corneal ulcer: which has left me with serious scaring to my right eye. The scaring was so deep that i will most likely need a corneal transplant. What a Nightmare.
