Hi

welcome to just answer

since your daughter is using contact lens for the 3 years, there is a probability of her having either dryness of eyes or she might be getting allergic reaction to the contact lens.

I would recommend her to use lubricating eye drops twice a day like refresh tears/systane/optive (available over the counter). These eye drops are to be used when she is not wearing contact lenses.

Also, if she has not changed her pair of contact lens, tell her to change it. Sometimes there are protein deposits on lenses which might be causing her problems.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards
