					Many people give up wearing contact lenses because they can never get
used to them. The lenses just don't feel comfortable. If this is your
case don't give up just yet; there are several things you can do to make
your lenses more comfortable.
If you contact lenses feel dry

How many glasses of water do you have every day? Not soda, coffee or tea,
but water? It is possible that your dry eyes are a result of general
dehydration. Try to drink more water. We all know that water is on the -
œgood for you-• list, but we often forget about it during our busy days.
If you work at the computer all day, your eyes are definitely drier than
they would be, otherwise. The reason is that while peering at the screen
people blink much less than usual. You can't control your blinking, but
you can try closing your eyes for a few seconds, at regular intervals.
Do you drink a lot of tea, coffee or soda that contains caffeine? They
all are dehydrators so, if you like coffee, you need to drink even more
water than usual.
Also you can ask your doctor if silicon-hydrogel contact lenses would
suit you. New generation silicon-hydrogel contacts don't block oxygen
flow to your eyes as much as ordinary lenses. Quite often contact lens
wearers report that silicon-hydrogel contacts, like Acuvue Advance, Focus
Night and Day or O2 Optix, solved their dry-eyes problem. See reviews of
most comfortable contact lenses.
  Eye drops can also be a solution, but only if your eyes occasionally
feel dry. You shouldn't use eye drops all the time
You constantly feel the lens in your eye
High quality contact lenses that are properly fitted to your eyes should
feel like you have nothing in your eye at all. See if these
recommendations can help..
Are you often exposed to cigarette smoke or dirty environments? Tiny
particles that get under your lens might be the cause of your discomfort,
try to avoid smoke and dusty rooms if possible.
Do you follow your doctor's instructions about cleaning your contacts
every day and replacing them on schedule? It is possible that proteins
from your eyes have built up on your lenses. It is very important to care
for your lenses properly
You can also switch to daily disposable contacts. They don't require any
care at all, and every day you start with fresh lenses that have no
build-ups from the previous day. Daily disposable lenses are definitely a
solution for people who have to spend a lot of time in dusty
The reason for lens awareness might be that the lenses simply don't fit
you. Contact lenses have many parameters and have to be properly fitted
by an eye doctor. You can't just select the brand you like and order it
Your eyes feel swollen, red and irritated
This is a sign of a serious problem and, whatever the cause might be, the
only sensible thing to do is to take your lenses off immediately and
don't wear them until you can see a doctor. Most likely the lenses are
not the source of your problem, but your eyes will heal better if there
is nothing in them.
