    You'd better not wear contact lenses if you have high eye pressures. High eye pressure is caused by the fast tear produce and slow excretion. Wearing contact lenses may aggregate the exchange of tears, which has bad influence on the eye health. Thus, people with high eye pressure are not suitable to wear the contact lenses.

    You had better not wear contact lenses when having high eye pressures. Under high eye pressure you will feel your eyes are dryness, or maybe your eyes will be eye irritation, and the more serious problem is cataract. You had better wear the eyeglasses when having high eye pressure. At the same time, you need some nutrients which is good for the eyes, recently lutein, vitamin A, C, E are necessary supplement.
