There have been quite a few news reports on contact lens wear being unhealthy during the COVID-19 pandemic and I’d like to address that specifically. There is NO scientific evidence to support the claims that contact lens wear is unhealthy during these times. For the vast majority of contact lens wearers, their contact lenses are inserted and removed at home, with no manipulation throughout the day. When worn properly, contact lenses are cleaned or disposed of on a daily basis. In contrast, glasses typically are not disinfected every day!
