Help and frequently asked questions

Can I still wear my contact lenses if I have conjunctivitis?

Answer: 

No. Contact lenses should not be worn until the symptoms have gone completely. If you continue to insert and replace your contact lenses you will keep re-infecting your eyes.If you continue to wear your lenses the contact lens case will become contaminated and it is highly likely that you will spread it to both of your eyes. Even if you have been prescribed treatment you should not wear your lenses until your symptoms have disappeared.
