How do I know if dry eyes would cause long term damage whilst wearing contact lenses?
At a recent contact lens check up I was diagnosed with very dry eyes, one more so than the other. The optician prescribed preservative free eye drops for application every few hours or whenever needed and to reduce the amount of time I wear my lenses. During the day I am wearing them no more then eight hours and only for less than a full day at the weekend. Is there any risk of damaging my eyes? My husband thinks that it would be better to stop wearing contacts altogether. My optician hasn't recommended that so I would prefer not to. How would I know if this would cause long term damage?
