Should you continue wearing contact lenses?
Contact Lens Wear is Safe. Despite myths and misinformation that have arisen, contact lens wear remains a safe and highly effective form of vision correction for millions of people worldwide.
Contact Lens Hygiene. Dispose your daily disposable lenses each evening, or regularly disinfect their monthly and two-week lenses according to manufacturer and eye care professional instructions. Diligent handwashing before using contact lenses is a must.
Discontinue Lens Wear Only if Sick. Ceasing contact lens wear when sick is advised.
