    Contact Lens Wear and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    • Should contact lens wearers take special precautions to prevent COVID-19?
      • Currently, there is no evidence to suggest contact lens wearers are more at risk for acquiring COVID-19 than eyeglass wearers.
      • Contact lens wearers should continue to practice safe contact lens wear and care hygiene habits to help prevent against transmission of any contact lens-related infections, such as always washing hands with soap and water before handling lenses.
      • People who are healthy can continue to wear and care for their contact lenses as prescribed by their eye care professional.
    • Is contact lens disinfecting solution effective against COVID-19?
      • Hydrogen peroxide-based systems for cleaning, disinfecting, and storing contact lenses should be effective against the virus that causes COVID-19.
        • For other disinfection methods, such as multipurpose solution and ultrasonic cleaners, there is currently not enough scientific evidence to determine efficacy against the virus.
      • Always use solution to disinfect your contact lenses and case to kill germs that may be present.
      • Handle your lenses over a surface that has been cleaned and disinfected.
