Top Contact Lens Experts Dispel Misinformation Regarding Coronavirus / COVID-19 Protections for Contact Lens Wearers

    • 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
  • Spectacles are Not Proven to Offer Protection against COVID-19
