Contact Lens Dry Eye Care In Clarksville

Contact lens wearers often complain that their lenses leave their eyes feeling dry. At Sites Vision Clinic in Clarksville, we believe that your lenses should make your life easier, not harder. Our contact lens specialists can help you find a solution to your contact lens-related dry eye optometry issues.

Dry Eyes, Contacts, And Your Vision

Dry eyes are a common problem for everyone, not just people who wear contact lenses. That being said, wearing contacts often makes dry eyes feel more pronounced. When your eyes are dry, this can cause your contacts to dry out as well. Dry contacts are more likely to move, fall out, and cause discomfort than contacts that stay properly hydrated. Luckily, our optometrist is well versed in helping people with dry eyes find the perfect contact lenses to suit their needs.

How Our Optometrist Can Help

Often, a simple lens brand switch is enough to fix the problem. Our optometry experts are experienced in helping you find the brand that is most comfortable for your eyes. If you're not already wearing soft contacts, switching to this type of lens may be all it takes for your dry eyes to feel relief. It's also worth trying daily disposable lenses instead of lenses that you replace weekly or monthly. If you've already made the switch to soft daily disposables and you still aren't feeling relief, scleral lenses are another option. These lenses cover the surface of the cornea and help keep the eye from drying out. Ortho-K lenses may also be an option for you. These special lenses are worn while you sleep and can help to reshape the surface of your eyes, helping to alleviate conditions that can cause dry eyes.
