I wear contacts and I wake up most mornings and my eyes are very dry and feel gritty.I wear daily-wear lenses, is this the problem? Should I change lenses?

If you would like a consultation about the brand or type of contact you are wearing, request an appointment and we will be able to make a better evaluation of the health of your eye and recommendation any possible changes.
