I was getting a check up at the opticians today, as I have had some problems with my contact lenses drying out after just a few hours wear - seemingly at random. Normally I wear my contacts for about 14 hours, which I know isn't recommended, but as a nurse working long shifts, I have little choice other than wearing my glasses.The optician said my eyes look quite red, and there is some neovascularisation and has recommended sillicone hydrogel lenses. Just wondered what others' experiences were and whether they make any difference - positive or negative. Thanks!
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
