Safe Contact Lens Wear in the time of COVID-19

Eco-friendly and washable face mask from ESTRA Clothing 
This pandemic is rampant and has been causing quite a decline and scare to everyone, may it be in the economy or in the mental and physical health of each of us. Based from scholarly articles published by researchers and experts, the transmission of COVID-19 virus is through entering our systems by spewing tiny droplets of the virus through our eyes, nose, mouth or anything that may be inserted through our body. Proper handwashing and sanitation are the best way to fight of the virus at the moment, together with using protective gears to fully cover your eyes, nose, and mouth. 

That being said, most people who wear contact lenses are terrified that they may contract the virus more compared to those who wear eyeglasses. But of course, wearing eyeglasses would not actually keep you safe from COVID-19 itself. You would still be able to contract the virus with or without your contact lenses, especially if you don’t take the necessary precautions.

For regular eyeglass users, it’s a challenge to wear PPEs because it irritates the whole eye area when worn with the eye covers. One best solution to avoid irritation is to substitute wearing contact lenses. Just so you could comfortably wear your eye shields, it’s best to resort to contact lens and make sure to not add up to the burden of wearing the PPEs pushing your glasses. 

Get to know the several kinds of contact lenses and assess whether what type would best suit you well.

💖Monthly Contact Lenses: 

Lasting Performance Seekers want a lens that can keep up with their highly active lives. They’re ambitious, goal-oriented people who have lots of long, busy days.

Functional Need:

“I need a lens that provides clear, crisp vision from the first to last hour of wear.”

Emotional Need:“I need lenses that won’t slow me down.”

💖Daily Contact Lenses: Alcon Dailies Aqua Comfort Plus- They’re disposable after using for the day so you would have to throw them after an entire day. You won’t even need to buy contact lens solution and you would not feel anything while wearing them. Extremely comfortable.

Choose the contact lens that is right for your lifestyle and comfort. I actually use contact lens most of the time because I’m afraid Baby Eliana will pull my glasses off and might cause accidents. It’s better to invest in something that guarantees comfort and safety as for me. Make sure to find what’s best for you and rock on those clear or colored contact lenses. 

Always take care of yourself and your contact lenses by using contact lens care systems & solutions. 

Hydrogen peroxide-based systems for cleaning, disinfecting, and storing contact lenses should be effective against the virus that cause COVID-19.
