What causes dry eyes?

Dry eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

•             Reduced tear production: This is often caused by age, certain medications, or medical conditions.

•             Increased tear evaporation: This can be caused by dry climates, wind, dust, or smoke.

•             Eyelid problems: This can include blepharitis, a condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids.

•             Contact lens wear: Contact lenses can absorb tears and irritate the eyes, leading to dry eyes.

Can I wear contact lenses if I have dry eyes?

You can still wear contact lenses if you have dry eyes. However, you may need to take some extra steps to manage your symptoms.

What can I do to manage dry eyes while wearing contact lenses?

There are a number of things you can do to manage dry eyes while wearing contact lenses, including:

•             Use lubricating eye drops: There are many over-the-counter lubricating eye drops available. Choose one that is specifically designed for contact lens wearers.

•             Take breaks from wearing your contacts: Give your eyes a break from wearing contacts for at least a few hours every day.

•             Use artificial tears: Artificial tears can help to replenish the tears in your eyes and reduce irritation.

•             Wear daily disposable lenses: Daily disposable lenses are less likely to accumulate deposits that can irritate the eyes.

•             Try silicone hydrogel lenses: Silicone hydrogel lenses are more breathable than traditional soft contact lenses, which can help to keep your eyes moist.
