There is no evidence that contact lens wearers are at greater risk for a Corona Virus infection, per the American Optometric Association Cornea and Contact Lens Section. Please follow the below tips:
- Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling contact lenses
- Avoid using contact lenses if you are ill with any cold or flu-like symptoms
- Reduce your risk for infection by avoiding sleeping, napping, swimming or showering in contact lenses
- Replace your contact lens case every 2 months
- Use fresh contact lens solution each time you store your lenses
- Do not reuse single-use/daily disposable lenses

LASIK surgery is currently the most popular elective procedure in the US, which is why our optometrists offer convenient co-management services to make it easy for you to benefit from this laser refractive surgery
Will removing cataracts improve vision?
Cataracts refer to when the normally clear lens of your eye clouds over. In a nutshell, cataract surgery removes this hazy lens and replaces it with a transparent artificial intraocular lens
