Have you checked with your doctor about the possible side effects?

I would check with your doctor.  I feel like I remember there being some sort of side effects with one of the pills I’ve been on related to eye health.  I’d give your doc a call.

Hmm, I’ve never heard of that.  You might want to try a different contact solution.  When I moved to CO, I started using Aquify because some of the others didn’t work well.

Hormonal BC can be linked to Dry Eye.  I had been on the pill for almost 10 years before I started having trouble, and have just started finding out that basically everything I do or every drug I take increases those risks.

Definitely go to your eye doctor.  I’ve been on Restasis eye drops (along with a thousand artificial tears a day) and my eyes are much better.  Not ready for contacts yet, but if you catch it early you might be!
