hrt and contact lenses

Ever since my last surgery i have had a difficult time wearing my contacts. I have extremely dry eyes. I don't know if it is for taking the hormones (Estrace) or what. Has anyone had this problem? Please help....

Lisa,
I have heard that this can be related to hormones. I am not sure if it is a side effect of estrace or a symptom of some other hormone imbalance. I am curious to see what the other sisters have to say, but in the meantime I would call your gyn and report this and also call your eye doctor. I am sure your eye doctor has heard this before and might offer a different perspective.
Let us know what you find out

hrt and contact lenses

Hi,
I've been on Activella (Estrogen) for almost a month now and have noticed the same problem with my contact lenses. It is worse when I've been working on the computer or doing any type of extended reading. I currently wear the one day lenses due to allergies (they are more expensive but worth it to me). However, I know I've been using contact lens wetting drops midway through the day. Go figure since you would think it wouldn't be neccesary with the one day lenses.

I found this thread in the archives, I had a vague recollection that it had been discussed before.
