Dear XXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

You are probably suffering from contact lens allergy which has got aggravated due to this summer season. You can use refresh tears eye drops 4 times per day while wearing your lenses. Also if your lens has become old it is time to replace it.
Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Dr.Mihir Shah

Thanks Mr. Shah, but I have replaced my lenses last month only. Pls again confirm me the name of eye trop - Is it 'refresh tears eye drop'.

I have one dought whether the quaterly/one day disposable lenses are better than 1 year disposable contact lense, specially in condition of my eye problem.

Dear XXXXXX

Thanks for writing back.
It is Refresh tears eye drops.

Quarterly disposable are better.
Daily disposable lenses will be more expensive but are the best.
