Contact Lens for dry eyes

What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a medical condition that can be caused by a lack of tear production or the tears drying up too quickly. Sometimes, it can be a temporary issue caused by allergies or environmental concerns such as dry air. No matter what's causing your dry eyes, though, you might be concerned that the condition will stop you from wearing contact lenses comfortably. Fortunately, that doesn’t need to be the case.

Can Contact Lenses Help?

The idea of wearing contact lenses when your eyes are already dry might not sound like a good one, but if you have dry eyes and want to wear contacts you, have some good options. For example, RGP (rigid gas-permeable) lenses can be a great choice, because they're harder lenses that might not draw as much moisture away from the eye as soft lens options do, potentially making them more comfortable for people with dry eye concerns.

What Makes Some Contacts Better Choices?

Optometry care has come a long way in recent years and that means contact lenses that can be worn by larger numbers of people with different kinds of conditions. This includes RGP lenses and scleral lenses for those with dry eye. Additionally, other contact lenses are available for patients with astigmatism, keratoconus, and more
