Do your eyes feel dry when you wear contact lenses? Don’t worry because eye dryness is a common issue for contact lens wearers and non wearers too. The good news is that with a little help from your eye doctor, you can find a treatment plan that works well enough for you so that you don’t have to suffer from dry eyes while you are wearing your contact lenses.

Finding the Cause


A visit to your eye doctor is the first step to finding out why your eyes are so dry. Your eye doctor can find out the cause of your dry eye by doing what is known as a tear film evaluation. There are a few ways that your eye doctor can assess your body’s ability to produce tears. Your eye doctor may drop a fluorescein dye to the tear layer on your eye or with a strip containing the dye and then see how long it takes for your tears to evaporate.

Another way your eye doctor can evaluate your tear film is to place a piece of paper underneath your lower eyelid for five minutes and then seeing the length of paper moistened by your tears. If you have an insufficient tear film, you may have dry eye syndrome.

Discussing Contact Lens Options

While you may be afraid to tell your eye doctor about dry eyes and contact lenses because you want to keep wearing contact lenses, it helps to bring this issue up so that your eye doctor can recommend the right contact lens for you. If you do feel like your eyes are dry when you wear contact lenses, having a conversation with your eye doctor can help him or her recommend contact lenses that can address your specific needs.

Proclear contact lenses for example, are the only contact lenses on the market with an FDA clearance to carry the labeling statement, ‘May provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear.’ If you do suffer from dry eyes during contact lens wear, make sure to ask your eye doctor about this as an option for you.

Follow Up

Once your doctor fits you with contact lenses, make sure to do a follow up appointment. This will help you and your eye doctor decide if the contact lenses you are fit with helps alleviate your dry eyes.

I have always used the Frequency 55 Toric lens for many years. I must say that this time I find them very thin, not as tinted and very uncomfortable. I am very disappointed in them and will look to find a better lens at my next appointment. Not sure if you changed anything but I see a significant change.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="">Seo Plugin</a>
