In brief: Variable

Dry eyes can be severe and uncomfortable despite treatments whereas contacts typically may be uncomfortable at first, but with a normal eye and a proper fitting, usually a lens with the correct shape and oxygen diffusion can eventually work and not cause discomfort.

In brief: Dye eye symptoms

Dry eye = scratchiness, irritation, blurred vision, mild light sensitivity, reactive tearing, improvement with rest or eye blinking.
