I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older that I’m experiencing more problems with my contact lenses. I’ve considered Lasek surgery but would rather just find a way to comfortably wear my contacts, but without the irritation that seems to be getting worse.
Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, did you find anything that helped?
I had a similar problem. My doctor told me my eyes were getting drier, partly caused by age, but also because I started taking medication for high blood pressure. Reduced estrogen levels are also a contributing factor. She suggested I switch to hard lenses, which are less likely to contribute to eye dryness. She also told me to make sure I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Her advice has really helped alleviate the problem.
I’ve suffered from migraines for years and just learned that I might have just needed to drink more water -turns out dehydration is a major cause of hedaches. ... as soon as I upped my water intake to 8 glasses a day my migraines have all but disappeared. ..exercise and getting enough sleep are also a big help.
I have worn contacts since I was16 years old. I was tested by 2 eye care specialist who gave me the same answer- 'the end of the road for contacts due to dry eyes'. I was very upset. Glasses full time? I have never done that and it wasn't a good solution for me. Weighed the pros and cons and am 1 year post Lasik surgery and absolutely love it!
