Contact lens wear during COVID-19
Exercise Proper Hand Washing. When using contact lenses or spectacles, one should wash their hands carefully and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, followed by hand drying with unused paper towels. This should occur before every contact lens insertion and removal. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. People should avoid touching their face, including their eyes, nose and mouth, with unwashed hands.
Disinfect Contact Lenses. Contact lens wearers should either dispose of their daily disposable lenses each evening, or regularly disinfect their monthly and two-week lenses according to instructions from the manufacturer and one's doctor of optometry.
Discontinue Lens Wear if Sick. Consistent with recommendations for other types of illness, those who feel ill with cold or flu-like symptoms should cease contact lens wear.
Glasses are Not Proven to Offer Protection. There is no scientific evidence that wearing spectacles or glasses provides protection against COVID-19 or other viral transmissions. Healthy individuals can continue to wear and care for their contact lenses as prescribed by their doctor of optometry.
