Frequently Asked Questions
About Contact Lenses

Will I Feel Them?

If you are wearing them properly, you should not be able to feel your contact lenses. If worn improperly, you may experience discomfort, impaired vision or irritation.

Will I Get Dry Eyes?

To avoid getting dry eyes, your optometrist may recommend drinking at least six to eight glasses of water a day, blinking regularly or using re-wetting drops. If you often suffer from dry eyes, your optometrist may be able to prescribe you with lenses that are designed to retain moisture.

Can Contact Lenses Get Behind My Eyes?

It is not possible for a contact lens to get behind your eye, due to their design.

What Are the Side Effects?

Generally, those who wear contact lenses will not experience any side effects. Some symptoms you may encounter can include minor irritations and sensitivity to light. Some minor irritations can include watering, redness, itchiness and burning.
