I work in a smoky/dusty environment. Can I wear contact lenses?

Answer: 

The short answer is probably, but you might need to try a few types of lenses first to find the most comfortable one for you.

If you work in a dusty environment, it's worth investing in some goggles or safety specs to wear over the top of your lenses so that particles do not become lodged underneath and cause irritation.

Many employers supply necessary eyewear for dusty environments - check with your health and safety officer.

Lens comfort drops are available which give temporary relief from smoky air and dehydration too.
