If you wear contact lenses and think you take good care of them, ask yourself these questions: Have you worn contacts while swimming or in a hot tub? Do you rinse your contacts or your lens case with tap water? Do you re-use solution or “top off” the solution in your lens case?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you could be at risk of acquiring a potentially blinding eye infection which can lead to the need for a corneal transplant.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology, Prevent Blindness America, Midwest Eye Banks and the Delta Gamma Foundation have teamed up to inform the public about proper contact lens care in hopes of preventing blinding eye infections.
