Please read our important medical disclaimer.
I wear contact lenses for distance and have back-up glasses in varifocals. My distance prescription is plus 1.50. I play golf but cannot see the ball in flight. I have tried colored golf balls and special golf sunglasses but only pick up the ball for short distances. My optician is not coming up with any solution. I have changed lenses several times but nothing works. Do you have any suggestions?
It sounds like you have tried the options we recommend. I would recommend scheduling a complete eye examination with your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) to determine if you have a cataract or some other abnormality in the eye. Cataracts commonly cause vision loss with decreased contrast sensitivity.
