Chronic Dry Eyes Can Increase the Cost of Wearing Contact Lenses

Those who have chronic dry eyes may find the cost of rewetting drops significantly adds to the overall cost of wearing contact lenses. Most contact lens wearers require only frequent use of rewetting drops but those with chronic dry eyes may need to use the drops several times each day. The cost of rewetting drops is generally around $5-$10, which may seem insignificant but it can add up if they are needed often.
