When we prescribe a contact lens and our patient returns stating that they are unhappy with the performance, we often ask them to categorize their complaints into two buckets: vision or comfort. When a patient comes in and says that their eyes are uncomfortable at the end of the day with their contact lenses, we often think that must mean the lens is dry. But discomfort to a patient can be as driven by eye strain due to a vision clarity issue as dryness or lens awareness. In this podcast episode, we discuss deciphering the patient contact lens experience with Dr. Erin Rueff, Chief of the Cornea and Contact Lens department at the Marshall B. Ketchum University Eye Center.
