Why Do Contact Lenses Cause Dry Eye

When you wear contact lenses, they cover the retina of the eye and this means that oxygen cannot get into the eye. This certainly affects your eyes’ hydration and may very well cause dry eye disease.

If you don’t blink enough throughout the day while wearing the contact lenses then they are not getting any moisture and therefore they cannot stay hydrated.

This means that the contact lenses will dry up and the contacts will be very dry and start to stick to your eyes. This in turn can lead to irritation in your eyes and stops people from wearing them long-term.

To avoid this happening, you need to blink more throughout the day, avoid being in an environment that will dry them out, start using eye drops or wear them less frequently.

If you’re having issues with dry eyes or if you want to ditch your contact lenses for good, we can take care of either.

Just schedule a Comprehensive Eye Screening then we’ll take it from there.
