Contact lenses: Are usually very safe and comfortable. If you are wearing an old pair of lenses, then throw them away. If you are having these symptoms even when starting a new pair of lenses, then you should definitely discuss other options with your eye doctor, including trying a different brand. In addition, he/she will make sure that you don't have any eye conditions which could contribute to your symptoms.
