Do You Know?
Contact lenses are among the safest forms of visual correction, when following your doctor's advice. However, when not used as directed, there can be serious consequences.
This resource for information regarding the proper use of and care for contact lenses has been developed by the American Optometric Association's Contact Lens and Cornea Section in cooperation with the American Academy of Optometry.
