Another strategy to combat contact lens-related dry eye is switching to a soft contact lens that has a lower water content than your present lens. High-water lenses sometimes dehydrate more easily in a dry environment, causing discomfort. Your eye doctor also may recommend a brand of soft lens designed specifically to reduce dry eye problems.
Changing from soft lenses to gas permeable contacts also may reduce dryness symptoms.
