Hi I think it is not necessary to use a high water content lens here..Ac environment, long time on computers, contact lenses, infrequent blinking ..all factors leading to dry eye ..here high water content would aggravate dry eye ..it is better to go for the regular lenses..u can try the difference ..

Ideally water content of the contract lens should be as high as possible to allow more oxygen to get to the Cornea . But since the lens also has to maintain its form and shape very high water content is also not possible. The lens you are wearing should be fine. Cleaning should be thorough as deposit formation are more common with high water content lenses.
