Some people prefer to wear contact lenses than prescription glasses. Of course, contact lenses do not block the view and can improve the eyesight in a 360 degree angle. However, there are others who shy away from getting contact lenses because of their dry eye condition. There are people who experience this condition more often than others and are afraid their situation might worsen when they wear contacts.

Although it is true that contact lenses are capable of drying the eyes, it is possible to prevent this from happening. If you have dry eyes syndrome, you can still wear contacts and enjoy better vision when you apply the following tips.
