Wearing contact lenses while crying is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it is safe as long as you avoid touching your eyes.
You can wipe away tears from your face without rubbing or dabbing your eyes, as wiping or dabbing can cause your contact lenses to shift, fold, or even come out of your eyes.
Crying is unlikely to cause your contact lenses to come out. While tears can add lubrication to your eyes, making your contact lenses move more freely, your contact lenses are designed to stay in place even when you cry.
However, crying may blur your vision temporarily as tears contain enzymes, fats, and mucus that can leave residue on the surface of your contact lenses. It is important to remove and clean your contact lenses properly after crying to restore clear vision.
Why do contact lenses get blurry after crying?
Tears contain various substances such as enzymes, fats, and mucus that can leave residue on the surface of your contact lenses, which can cause them to become blurry after crying.
Removing and properly cleaning your contact lenses after crying can help restore clear vision by removing the residue from tears.
In conclusion, wearing contact lenses while crying is generally safe as long as you avoid touching your eyes and take proper care of your contact lenses afterwards.
Crying may cause temporary blurriness due to tear residue on your contact lenses, but this can be easily resolved by cleaning your lenses properly.
