I couldn't wear my contacts to work either. I thought the problem was the A/C making the air so dry, plus its recirculated so that makes it dry as well.

Most of the staff I work with has a hard time with contacts at work so I truely do think the air is much drier.

I's more than likely the dry air. I couldn't wear my contacts much at all in the hospital setting and ended up having Lasik.

Agree with all the post above, try changing the brand of contacts you use maybe try Acuvue... but def see an opthalmologist

I can't wear my contacts to clinical either. I have tried rewetting drops, and even drops that clean while you wear. I just wear my glasses on clinical days. I have my hair up, no makeup, and those awful school scrubs so my glasses can only improve my look lol.

Another poster mentioned this also, the lighting, I believe the flourescent lighting is a huge bother to my eyes.
