Choosing the Right Contact Lenses for Dry Eye Relief: What to Consider

Dry eye can significantly impact the comfort and vision of contact lens wearers. When the eyes lack adequate lubrication, it can lead to irritation, redness, and a gritty sensation, making it challenging to wear contact lenses comfortably. For those who suffer from dry eye, wearing contact lenses can exacerbate the symptoms. The lenses themselves can act as a barrier, preventing the natural tear film from adequately lubricating the eyes. Proper lens selection, combined with appropriate treatment and lifestyle modifications, can help mitigate the symptoms and improve overall comfort for contact lens wearers with dry eyes.
