Default wrong base curve on contacts (contact lenses)


I have recently started wearing contact lenses. Acuvue 2's. My prescription
states a BC of 8.3 but I just noticed that the box of lenses that I received
from the optometrist is 8.7. I have worn them for about a month now. I still
have a couple left, should I switch immediatly to a BC 8.3 lense or would it
be ok to use up the ones I have left and then buy the correct ones next? I
havent noticed any discomfort from these.

Did the doc write an RX for 8.3 and give you a box of 8.7? Did you buy
lenses elsewhere? The best way to find out what direction to take is to
pick up the telephone and ask your doctor.

only have 2 sets of lenses left. I'm wondering if I can just use up these last 2 sets.
