Wear Crt Lenses Cause Lot of Tears ?

09/29/2011

Question:

hi,

my kid had crt lenses for three weeks,she can only wear them for three hours,then she will has a lot of tears and feels the stings&hurt have to take it out. is that means she should not wear them?

Answer:

My best suggestion is to consult with your eyecare practitioner. In addition to that you could consider trying a different contact lens care solution. It is possible that by changing the care solution a noticeable difference in comfort could occur.

If the discomfort persists with different solutions and the fit of the lenses is appropriate, she simply may not be a good candidate.
