Q&A with Dr. Riles
Dr. Riles Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Dr. Riles, what are the best ways to wear contact lenses if I have a history of allergy eyes or frequent red eyes?
I highly recommend daily disposable contact lenses to my patients who have had a history of allergy eyes or frequent red eyes and especially a past history of corneal infections. You wear them and pitch them on a daily basis! You don’t have to worry about build up of proteins or allergens on your lenses. It’s the safest way to wear contacts and the cost is very reasonable! However, some patients’ prescriptions are not yet available in daily disposables. In that case, I recommend three things to keep your eyes healthy and contact lenses comfortable, especially during allergy season – 1) Dispose of the lenses on a two-week basis; 2) Use a peroxide-based cleaning solution like Clear Care to keep protein and allergens from building up on your lenses; 3) Use a prescription eye allergy drop that is convenient for contact lens wearers. I am happy to perform an eye allergy assessment in the office and prescribe the necessary drops.
