    It is normal for people experience discomfort when they first time wear it. To reduce your discomfort, you can use some Artificial tears or eye drops which can help you adapt the lenses and comfort your eyes. With some eye drops, they can keep your eyes moist, thus to help you. Besides, you shall not wear the contact lenses too long at the first day - two hours is ok. Then you can gradually add the time for wearing contact lenses every day.
