Keeping your eyes healthy while wearing contact lenses
Keywords: eyes, contact lenses, healthy
AbstractMany people rely on contact lenses to improve their vision. In addition, some contact lenses are used to correct special vision problems, to treat eye diseases or for cosmetic purposes, for example, to change or enhance the colour of the eyes. While contact lenses provide many benefits and are generally safe, they are not completely risk-free, especially if not used, cleaned, stored or cared for correctly. This article will focus on contact lens care and the healthy habits necessary to reduce the possible risks associated with contact lens wear.
