Dry eyes: First question to answer is why are your eyes dry? Your lacrimal glands, lacrimal ducts, and eyelids are supposed to naturally lubricate and hydrate the corneas. So something isn't working properly. Also take into account climate humidity, elevation, and industrial exposure where you live.
First step in treatment is artificial tear drops available OTC.

How to tell if my eyes are too dry for contacts?

While wearing: contact lenses, your eyes can become irritated, scratchy, and even become red. Dryness will also cause you to have cloudy vision that comes and goes. Use plenty of artificial tears and shorten the period you wear contacts. If the dryness is too severe, then contacts are probably not your friend. Sometimes, switching to another brand is worth a try. Good Luck.
