What can we say? If you don't already know it, Dr.Ephraim specializes in contact lenses. So, it may seem like we're beating a dead horse with all this contact lens talk, but really we just know what we're talking about. (Yes, we just bragged a little bit.)
According to the American Optometric Association, there are three main habits that lead to contact lens contamination, which can lead to infection.
- Not washing hands with soap and water before handling.
- Not air-drying lens cases.
- Using contact lens cases and disinfecting solutions from different manufactures.
