When you're still at the honeymoon stage of wearing contact lenses, you might think "that's it, I am settled for life". Life evolves, eyes changes and your eye care routine and lenses should adapt to fit your lifestyle. A comfortable contact lens should not be felt, and if it is, ask yourself a simple question: are your lenses actually comfortable?
One thing you might experience (unknowingly) is recurring dryness. Though eye drops do provide instant and effective soothing relief, don’t ignore recurring symptoms such as dry eyes. It's a bit like having a headache because you're tired, paracetamol will help you soothe the headache but you need to address the problem. It works the same for contact lenses, although eye drops are a great help to relieve symptoms, don't just mask the problem. Nobody should ever have to put up with uncomfortable contact lenses. There are simply too many technologies and materials nowadays for lenses to cause irritability. It's all about finding the one that best suits you. Here's a list of situations which might indicate you would benefit from trying some new contact lenses.
