How can I stop my contacts from itching and giving me styes and irritating my eyes badly!?

Ok, I have posted a question very similar to this before, but am reposting hoping to get some more detailed answers more similar to my problem. Now, I wear dailies contact lenses. This means that I put them in, in the morning, take them out and throw them away at night. I don't use a case, nor do I use contact solution. I wash and dry my hands very thoroughly before I get anywhere near my eyes, I'm sure of that. My contacts Are not inside out, im pretty sure i dont have sensitive eyes. This problem started a little while after I started wearing contact so before that I was perfectly fine wearing them. Now, I put them in, they itch, hurt, cause me styes, and irritate my eyes so bad! It's got to the point I have to take them out during the school day. I'm sick and tired of this, and right now the eye doctor is my LAST resort. I've tried wearing glasses for a while, but when I go back they itch again. Please help me to figure out my problem.

Had you changed brands when they started itching? It might be brand specific. Also some lenses have a larger diameter than others which can make them not fit quite right if your eyes are smaller (and vise versa) I would really highly suggest you make an apt at your optometrist to have him check them. Your eyes are nothing you want to play around with and put off getting changes looked at.

You need solution. It makes your eye moist.

Make sure your eyes are clean in the morning, and you definitely need to use a saline solution for moisture. Also it's allergy season so take a Benydryl at night before you go to bed and you may need to take something during the day also like Zyrtec or something similar.

So I just put in my bio solution in the morning to stop the itching? But what is with the styes?

I'm not sure what is causing the styes.... I suggest you google it. Hope it gets better soon....

Unfortunately you might not be able to wear contacts. All you can do is use rewetting drops for contacts and try different brands.

It might be because of a different brand, try the ones you used to have, and also keep your eyes hydrated
