- PreviewDespite the increased use of silicone hydrogel daily disposable (SiHyDD) contact lenses and the development of new contact lens materials, discomfort remains the major cause of discontinuation of contact lens wear . Contact lens wear has been shown to be a major cause of tear film instability, increased evaporation rate, and dry-eye symptoms, leading to increased end-of-day ocular discomfort and reduced wearing time [2–6]. This discomfort can be exacerbated by longer wearing time, demanding visual tasks, and by dry environments [7–9].
