If have dry eye, can I still wear contact lenses?

Virtually everyone will experience some dry eye symptoms at times, whether during computer use, in dry, cool, or breezy environments, or triggered by medications. By choosing the correct contact lens material, replacement schedule, solution, and rewetting drops, comfort can be maximized while the risk of complications is minimized. Not everyone is a candidate for full-time contact lens wear, but many patients can enjoy the benefits on a part-time schedule for athletic or social events, or the occasional day at the beach.
