Readers Respond: Common Problems with Wearing Contact Lenses with Eye Allergies

Responses: 2


Updated June 28, 2010

Eye allergies are extremely common, affecting up to 1 in 3 people. Contact lens wear is also very common, and many people with eye allergies would like to wear contact lenses. Unfortunately, many people with eye allergies either cannot wear contact lenses, or are concerned that the use of contact lenses will either worsen their eye allergy symptoms or result in them not being able to use allergy eye drops.

Have you found it difficult to wear contact lenses with your eye allergies? Share your story and read about others in the same boat. Share Your Story
