Corneal Infections

The most dreaded complication of contact lens use is corneal infections.

Types of Corneal Infections

Infections may be bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoal.

Treatment

Depending on the severity of the infection, treatment could be long-drawn and may require corneal transplantation.

Prevention

It is always better to prevent an infection rather than to have to treat it. Contact lens hygiene is of utmost importance. In fact, we encourage the use of daily disposable contact lens to negate the need to wash your contact lenses. It is also prudent to avoid any contact with mud or dirty water when using your contact lenses.  

When to seek medical attention

Any signs of eye redness or irritation requires immediate medical attention to treat any early infection.
