What Contact Lenses Should and Should Not Feel Like
Updated: Jan 17
Attention new contact lens wearers or those who currently wear contacts! Here are some tips to know if you're wearing the right contact lens for you...
Contact Lenses Should...
be comfortable upon insertion
provide consistent clear vision while wearing them
feel natural and fairly comfortable during the first 6-8 hours of wear
start to feel dry after 8 hours of wear and from staring at a computer all day. Time to remove them!
Contact Lenses Should Not...
feel painful on your eye
cause your eyes to go red and irritated
feel dry or scratchy after 20 minutes of wear
feel like they are excessively moving around after each blink
get caught under your eyelid
fall out after blinking
cause your eyes to tear all day
If any of the above occurs, please see your optometrist for a contact lens consult to be properly fitted.
