Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I am happy to assist you with your question today.
I often fit contact lenses as bandage lenses. This is rarely done for dry eye, however.
I usually use a bandage lens for cases of damage to the front surface of the eye.
I usually use a bandage lens called Acuvue Oasys. I have also used Biofinity and Air Optix Night and Day.
There is only one lens which is FDA-approved for dry eye, called Proclear. This lens should not be worn as a bandage lens because it cannot be slept in, but it does create somewhat of a re-wetting effect on the eyes, especially those that suffer from dryness.

Thanks. How about if I have blephitis. Well my doctor released me, basically, abandoned me. My right eye has cornea abrasions due to dry eye. Can a bandage contact work for this?
i been doing compresses and lid scrub for almost a year. seems my vision is effected by dry eye too, is it true that proclear also helps with higher order abberations. will the one a days work best since i have blephitis. do you also know if their is a place i can try them out to see the comfort with no prescription.
I never knew that Restasis treats blepharitis.
Does it treat melborian gland disfunction?
Ok, do you know of any specialists in Texas that can diagnose 100% of what is causing my dry eyes?
if my dry eyes is happening because of evaporative from the eye lids, but i have plenty of tears, can one of those bandage contact help, or maybe just to sleep in
is there a way we can purchase them without a doctor and take them to a doctor to put them in?
ok, thanks for your help.
