Nothing can be more frustrating than having to wear a set of contact lenses that are uncomfortable. It is certainly recommended that you book an eye-test with your local optometrist in Kitchener if your eyes don’t feel or look good when wearing your contact lenses. While there are a few tips for solving short term discomfort, if the problem persists, you need to visit your optometrist for professional advice.
Want to alleviate contact lens discomfort? Consider the following tips / solutions:
- Artificial tears – these can provide temporary relief to occasional dry eyes. Of course it is important to get these drops from your optician as some are not compatible with all types of contact lenses.
- Only use the prescribed eye care products – your optician will have prescribed contact lens care products that are best suited to your lenses and eyes. Using alternative products can result in eye irritation and discomfort as well as deterioration in the quality of your lenses.
- Boost nutrition – natural tear production is important for comfortable contact lens wearing. Your eyes will need to produce enough tears, but the quality of tears must also be good. Following a healthy and nutritional diet that includes Omega 3 fatty acids and flaxseed oil can help with this.
The best solution however is to find the most comfortable contact lenses for you, with the help of your dedicated optometrist. This can be done by booking an eye exam and having a contact lens fitting where precision fit custom contacts can be designed and created specifically for you.
