Q&A with Dr. B

Dr. Barnstein Answers Your Eyecare Questions

What are the best ways to wear contact lenses if I have a history of allergies and allergic conjunctivitis?

The Baltimore area in recent years has had some pollen levels off the charts! Symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis can include itching, watery eyes, and a white stringy discharge. One of the more bothersome complications for contact lens wear patients with allergies is Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis which causes bumps underneath the upper lid. When the upper lid blinks over that contact lens thousands of times a day, these bumps from GPC rub against the contact, causing discomfort, irritation, and even a stickiness, where the bumps under the lids can drag the contact lens out of place. There are some great peroxide based solutions like Clearcare that clean the surface of the lens to maximize comfort and minimize protein and pollen related buildup. For eye allergy sufferers, I usually explain that the healthiest way to wear contact lenses is with a daily disposable or one day contact lens. Each day that a contact lens wearer puts in a one day contact lens, it’s a clean, crisp, sterile contact lens, which  means the contact lens surface has minimal time to build up protein, and other allergy related issues that stick on the lens,. If you have had trouble wearing contacts comfortably, feel free to contact me to explore your options.
