What is the Perfect Bandage Lens for Dry Eye?
Are there some bandage contacts for dry eye?
There are certain soft contact lenses that we tend to use more often as bandage contact lenses now. They're not specifically for bandage contact lenses. These are just contact lenses that we use for patients every day in our clinic but they can be good for things like recurrent corneal erosions, corneal abrasions, and sometimes for dry eye. If you have very bad irritating dry eye I will use a contact lens. However, a lot of the time we won't use contact lenses because it can actually make things a little bit worse, so it all comes down to what your current situation is.
