Hi,

I'm on my 18th day of  RGP lens trial. They feel okay, but after a full day of wearing them my eyes tend to get red. Should I go back to wearing soft lenses?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question

You can use preservative free lubricant eye drops that can be used while you are wearing contact lenses such as Systane contact eye drops.  Try to use them every 3-4 hours. If you dont feel any improvement within 1-2 weeks or your condition get worse you should visit your optometrist or ophthalmologist for further examination and to make sure
