Of course first things first, it is important to consult your eye doctor to make sure it is okay to purchase non-prescription contact lenses. Make sure that your eyeballs aren’t a different size or shape from what is common. Non-prescription lenses will usually come in a standard size which will fit most but not all so it is important to find out if your eyes have outlying traits as mentioned above.

You can try out some non-prescription contacts even without consulting your doctor but make sure not to keep them on for long if you start feeling much discomfort. If it feels that wrong, then it must be.

That being said, there are also a number of reasons other than fit which could contribute to your discomfort. It could be dryness of eyes and simple lubrication from eye or lens solution might just do the trick. However, if your discomfort is extreme, remove your lenses and check for any tears or dirt on them. Tear's small dirt specks are quite painful on the eyes and can be tricky to spot right away so it is always important to check for them.

Another sneaky problem would be that you may have put your lenses on inverted! No shame in that; it happens even to the best of us. You’d be surprised at how many people overlook this. To check and avoid this, simply place your contact lens on your index finger and inspect its shape. If the lens has curvy and bowl-like sides, then they’re correctly oriented. If your lens sides go inward first and then fan out on the edges, then they’re definitely inverted.
