Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes

1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand Contact Lenses

Help for eyes that feel dry


Your eyes naturally maintain a healthy, comfortable layer of moisture. But overheated or air-conditioned rooms, smoke, dust or wind can throw your eyes out of balance. So can prolonged computer use, because you blink less. The result? Dehydrated contact lenses and eyes that feel dry or irritated. Your eyes will recover on their own.

But in the meantime, here’s how to push back:

  • Try using rewetting drops recommended by your eye doctor.
  • Wear your contacts only as long as your eye doctor recommends.
  • Clean your contacts properly to reduce surface deposits and other buildup.
  • Blink more often to maintain a comfortable layer of moisture.
  • Consider using daily disposable contact lenses such as 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand.
  • Consider a silicone hydrogel contact lens such as ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand, ACUVUE® ADVANCE® PLUS Brand or 1-DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® Brand—they’re designed to maintain moisture

Bethesda Vision Care consistently uses the latest in technology to enable those with a history of poor comfort or dry eyes with their contact lenses to wear contact lenses again. We are a leadership practice and consultants for the largest contact lens manufacturing companies. Due to our experience, we have a very high success rate for our contact lens patients.
