Watery eyes and contact lenses
I have been thinking about wearing contact lenses, but suffer from allergies and on some days have very watery eyes. Will this affect me wearing lenses?
Some people do find that symptoms of their allergies affect how comfortable contact lenses are. The only way to find whether you can be successful is to give them a try and to be prepared to try out a few different types to find the ones that are best for you.
You might find that daily disposables, which give you the option to wear specs on days when your symptoms are at their worst, might be a good option. Please visit your local optometrist who will be happy to establish your suitability for contact lens wear and advise you on strategies during the time your symptoms appear.
