Stinging And Dry Eyes After Using Contact Lenses?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. Yesterday I wanted to use soflens, but they were tucked away. Thank God it could be removed, but after a day after waking up, my eyes felt sore and dry. Guess why? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Contact lenses or soft lenses are an alternative treatment that can be given to those who have visual impairments. Although the designation is to be put in front of the eye, the contact lens is still categorized as a foreign object because it is not part of the body. So that if it is tucked away, it can cause eye irritation with symptoms of red, sore, watery, painful eyes and feels lumpy and dry.
So in your case, you are probably experiencing eye irritation. But of course, other possibilities can happen, it's just that the timing coincides with your slipped fluids, such as viral, bacterial or parasitic infections, dry eye syndrome, and so on.
For that we think it is important for you to have your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist, especially if the symptoms you feel persist and do not improve. Your eye doctor will look directly at the condition of your eyes and may order a short test to determine the cause. Only then will it be known what treatment is best for you.
In the meantime, avoid rubbing your eyes, you should wear glasses first, avoid dusty or sandy areas, and feel free to apply standard OTC eye drops by reading the rules listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
