Contact lenses are a heaven-sent for those of us with poor eyesight

Contact lenses are a heaven-sent for those of us with poor eyesight – they’re a safe and effective alternative to glasses. If you don’t wear them and care for them properly, however, you expose yourself to the risk of eye infections that can range in severity from minor irritations to significant long-term damage. So don't sleep in your contact lenses, replace them as often as recommended by your optometrist, always use new cleaning solution and clean night-time storage containers, and go for regular check-ups.
