Safe use of contact lenses

I have seen a number of patients over the years with infections of their cornea. The cornea is the clear window over the front of the eye. Unlike conjunctivitis, a corneal ulcer or keratitis can often cause permanent vision loss. This vision loss can sometimes be treated with a corneal transplant. Rarely, the keratitis can be bad enough that a patient can lose their eye completely. One of the most common causes of these corneal infections is actually contact lens wear. With perfect use, the rate of contact lens related corneal ulcers is only around one in two thousand per year. However, this can go up dramatically, and with certain behaviors, the infection rate can approach 100%. Whe
