Dry eye oil gland

Hi,
I have been wearing a contact lenses for many years with no problem.  However beginning of this year I have been having a vision problem.  When I take the lenses off from my eyes, it looks like there is an oily residue (blotches).  This is causing blurry visions.  I've tried different contact name brands and so far nothing works.

Any suggestions?  

Thank you

There are several causes for this including an allergy to contacts called giant papillary conjunctivitis. Anyone wearing contacts needs to be under the care of an eye MD ophthalmologist or optometrist. See yours
