DR. BOB'S BLOG

It is summer and contact lens wearer's may be wanting to swim at the lake or in a pool to cool down on a hot day. But it is not recommended to have your contact lenses come in contact with any sources of water, be it at the pool or at the lake.  Swimming in your contact lenses can result in eye infections or in a more serious condition called a corneal ulcer.  The microbes such as the acanthamoeba found in water can survive between the eye and your contact lens.  Even if you take out your lenses and clean them the organism can infect them for days later and is resistant to most disinfectants.  In severe cases it can lead to vision loss.So if your heading to the pool or the lake it is advised to wear goggles over your contact lenses to protect your eyes!  And have a safe enjoyable summer!
