You should also be screened by a refractive surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. ...Read more

Why are my eyes dry after I take off my contact lenses?

Why are my eyes dry after I take off my contact lenses?

Contacts use water: Modern soft contact lenses soak up much of the water in your tear film when they are on your eye. When you remove them, that water goes with them, leaving a smaller amount of water remaining than if no contact lenses had been there. This can be very inconvenient if you already have dry eyes, a condition more common in folks over 50. ...Read more

I have recently tried to wear prescription multi-focal contact lenses. How long does it usually take for ones eyes to adjust.

Motivation is important also and previous contact lens wearers generally do better. ...Read more

I use contact lenses and sometimes my eyes get red. I'm also allergic. Shall I use eye drops, antiallergenics or take off the lenses?

I use contact lenses and sometimes my eyes get red. I'm also allergic. Shall I use eye drops, antiallergenics or take off the lenses?

Take out contacts: In order to put in anti-allergy eye drops, you need to take out your lenses anyway, so take them out for awhile, as soon as practically possible, when the eyes become red. Redness means inflammation. It's really hard to tell if there is one cause or several. The contact itself is a foreign body, and if you are allergic, you can even be allergic to drops, so have your eye doctor check you & advise. ...Read more

I took one bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and can barely keep my eyes open. Severe fatigue. Can I stop taking it? What happens if I only take 1?

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for UTI: It is unusual for one Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) rx to cause such severe fatigue. Moreover, it is usually given for 3 days twice/day. By taking only one tablet you run the risk of desensitizing your body to that specific antibiotic and developing resistance to its' future use and it will not work when needed. ...Read more
