Does contact lenses cause eye dryness ?

I have been wearing contact lenses for 6 years now and 2 years ago after an eye dr appt i started having problems with my eyes and contact lenses. These problems consist of dryness with all lenses and glares at all times of the day. Also ever since I have had problem with glares when looking at lights for example when I look at a clock i can see the numbers clear but I can see them raised up as well like 3d. I am just wondering if anyone has an idea of what could be going on with me and if it can be fixed or will ever go back to the way it used to be(normal)? thanks
