I work in a smoky/dusty environment. Can I wear contact lenses?
The short answer is probably, but you may need to try a few types of lens to find the most comfortable one for you. In a dusty environment, you should invest in some goggles or safety specs to wear over the top of your lenses so that particles do not become lodged under the lenses and cause irritation. If you work in a dusty area your employer may supply the necessary eyewear - check with your health and safety officer. Lens comfort drops are available which give temporary relief from discomfort caused by smoky air and dehydration.
