In this article, we will talk about the best monthly lens for dry eye. Dry eyes can be an uncomfortable and even painful condition to deal with on a daily basis. They can be caused by a variety of factors in everyday living.

Wearing contact lens for long hours and staring at computer without blinking can have adverse effects on your eyes by reducing the rate at which they hydrate themselves. Your eyes rely on the moisture that blinking provides to stay healthy. When your blinking rate is severely reduced, your eyes will begin to dry out as will your contact lenses. This can lead to eyes feeling itchy, irritated and sometimes inflamed and painful.
