Dry eyes
I have very dry eyes which makes it difficult for me to wear contacts. Eye drops do not help much. This only helps for a couple of minutes. I do not want to use natural products because this takes months to take effect. What can I use to moturise my and eyes and get rid of the redness

Dear Ragan
It depends what the cause of the redness is - if it is allergy or irritation from the contact lens fluids, you need to have it treated. Duratears or Tears naturale are options to consider.
