I am in my late 30s and have always been nearsighted/myopic. My prescription is -7.25 with (I am told a lot of) astigmatism. My vision is starting to change...I can see bifocals on the distant horizon. [more inside]
Should I try contact lenses again? What brand/style? [more inside]
It feels like there's something in my eye, which is making blinking that eye painful. It's 1 am here. What do I do? [more inside]
I'm looking to hear from people who have both astigmatism and myopia and have successfully transitioned to contact lenses. Also, if your eye doc is in Manhattan, can I have his/her number? [more inside]
I'm looking for a recommendation for an eye doctor/ contact lens specialist in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. I wear gas-permeable lenses and need a new prescription and lenses. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I tried ordering contacts online last week .. a day after placing the order, they called me and said my eye doctor's office said my prescription had expired. So, I'm a little annoyed at my eye doctor -- my last appointment was not more than a year ago and before that my prescription hadn't changed in 8 years. I'm comfortable with my eyesight and feel confident I have the same prescription. I just would like some more contacts. Is there away around this ? Is my eye doctor trying to make some money by getting me to come in again ? or order the contacts through him? How is this different than me ordering a TWO year supply of contacts last year ? It seems like red tape to me . .thanks for any advice.
