    • Contact Lens Wear is Safe
    • Proper Hand Washing is Essential to insert or remove your contact lenses
    • Disinfect Contact Lenses 
      • Disinfect your contact lenses every night if you are wearing monthly or biweekly lenses. Daily contact lenses do not need to be disinfected since they are not reused. 
    • Disinfect Spectacles and Glasses
      • Since COVID-19 can remain on hard surfaces for hours to days it is important to clean your glasses. Especially people who wear reading glasses or sunglasses that do not stay on your face all day. Putting your glasses on and off of your face throughout the day can transfer the virus.
    • Discontinue Lens Wear Only if Sick

TODAY IS AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION ALERT DAY®

AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION ALERT DAY®

American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a one-day “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetesa condition characterized by high blood glucose levels caused by either a lack of insulin or the body’s inability to use insulin efficiently. Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older adults but can appear in young people.X. In 2015, Alert Day will take place on Tuesday, March 24.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetesa condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but are not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. People with prediabetes are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes and for heart disease and stroke. Other names for prediabetes are impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose.X or type 2 diabetes. Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.
