Is it OK to Wear Contact Lenses?

Rest assured that #ContactLens wear is safe during the #COVID19 pandemic as long as proper hand washing and disinfecting procedures are followed

– Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before touching your eyes, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
– If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
– Contact lenses should be either disposed daily or disinfected daily.
– Disinfect your glasses, especially if you remove and put them on multiple times in a day

Be extremely careful. Now is not the time to get an eye infection!
