How to Treat Uncomfortable Contact Lenses ?

Uncomfortable lenses is the main complaint of half of former contacts wearers who have stopped wearing their lenses. What most people don't know, is that they only need to do a few minor changes for their lenses to feel more comfortable.

"They said that when you wear contacts, you wouldn't feel that they're there. When I'm wearing mine, I always feel like something is in my eye."

If you can always "feel" your contact lenses, it may be because your contacts are the wrong size. Lenses come in different diameters and curvatures. A poorly fitting lens will also be more easily dislodged. Another possible reason for this problem is that your lens-cleansing product is not doing a good job, and some deposits are retained. Ask your optometrist for the best cleaning solution for you.

"My eyes are red, swollen, painful. Sometimes, it even has a discharge."

Discharge, or redness with pain and swelling may indicate and infection. If you experience any of these symptoms, do not wear your lenses and consult your ophthalmologist. Continued contact lens wearing can make the problem worse, regardless of whether the lens had anything to do with the infection or not.

"My eyes feel dry when I'm wearing my contacts."

If the problem is only occasional, eye drops may do the trick. But since not all eye drops are compatible with lenses, ask your eye care professional for the correct one.

"I use the computer all the time."

When using a computer, you don't blink as much. This can lead to dryness, eyestrain or redness. The catch-term for this is "computer vision syndrome". Take an "eye break" every few minutes to close your eyes and relax.

If there is one thing you need to remember, it's that if your eyes don't feel or look good, something may be wrong. It may not meat the end of your contact-wearing days, but you do need a checkup. Problems can be fixed, but don't wait until it's too late.
