What Causes Wearers to Drop Out?
As many as one out of five contact lens wearers expressed some likelihood of discontinuing use of their lenses in the future.1 Contact lens dropouts or reduced frequency of lens wear (drop-off) can stem from many different causes, including:1
• High computer usage
High computer usage, along with dryness, was named as the #1 contributing factor to contact lens drop-off.1 Perhaps this is because we may blink up to 66% less on average when using a digital device,2 which could lead to lens dehydration.3
