Keywords: Contact lens care
AbstractContact lenses are an extremely convenient way to correct vision and are safely used by millions of people every day. However, they do require some extra care and attention in handling and keeping them clean to avoid the risk of eye infection.1,2 Risk of infection varies somewhat depending on the type of contact lens. Single-use daily disposable lenses are the safest type of soft contact lens, in terms of reducing the risk of infection. Rigid gas permeable lenses are a safer alternative than any type of soft contact lens.2
