Contact lens wearer with very dry eyes - how can I prevent dry eyes after getting back to wearing contacts full time?

In brief: Need evaluation

A medical eye exam should be able to determine the type of dry eye you suffer from and customize a treatment that will allow you to wear contact lenses.

There are many options including choosing the right contacts, closing tear drainage canals, artificial tears, or restasis medicated drops.

In brief: Dry eye

Artificial tears, restasis, punctal plugs, change contact lens material or go to daily contacts, warm compresses daily, fish oil supplements, ointment at night, and other treatments can be considered.
