Corneal InfectionsThe most dreaded complication of contact lens use is corneal infections.
Types of Corneal Infections
Infections may be bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoal.
Depending on the severity of the infection, treatment could be long-drawn and may require corneal transplantation.
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.
