    Just a quick thing complaining about my contact lenses - my eyes seem to become very tired after wearing them for lets say 4 hours? I cant really wear glasses esp when i play sports etc, and i tend to wear the contact lenses for longer instead of taking them off and put on the glasses because of inconvenice. Anyone find contact lenses iring your eyes? Are there any ways to solve this? e.g. does hard lense makes it more comfortable for longer-wear? :confused:

    Is there not some special liquid that you can apply to your eyes before placing the contact lenses?

    i wear them...daily ones(soft) and i dont have any trouble at all...i know that i prob screw up my eyes a bit but i often wear them for like 24 hours or if i have a big night i can end up wearing them for like 36....i guess everyones eyes are just different and if your eyes dont cope with contacts v.well then i cant really think that there is going to be a wonder solution to it....i suppose you just have to grin and bear it...(sorry this must just be the most irritating piece of advice ever....)

    try changing your solution to another brand, that did it for me, my eyes used to feel soooooo tired even though i had only worn them for a couple of hours !!!

    hope this helps,

    Have exactly the same problem. I get so tired when wearing contact lens, apparently it is because i over strain my eyes when i am not wearing them so when i wear them it overcorrects or something....

    i find that aswell. while i have them in, my eyes just dont want to stay open. they feel really tired and asif i have been rubbing them constantly. i think hard lenses are supposed to be more irritable.

    get contact lenses with a higher water content. They're a little bit more expensive but you probably need them. I get by fine wearing standard monthy contacts everyday. Although when i stay up really late they can dry my eyes a bit.

    Yeah, i have the same problem. My eyes started to get dry+tired after only 3 or 4 hours. But im scared of telling my opticians, in case they tell me im not allowed to wear them anymore!!! Do you think they'll just give me eyedrops or something that will solve the problem??????

    i wear contacts, mine are monthly, and my eyes usually feel more tired and start to hurt towards the end of the month, im guessing thats probably coz they're wearing out
