Easy to grow bacteria and fungi, risk of keratitis and conjunctivitis when contact lenses placed in the restoom come into contact with the eyes

When you wear lenses in the bathroom, accidentally dropping them can block the sink drain.

Therefore, it should be worn after preventing the lens from falling on the sink or floor.

In addition, high-humidity toilets are easy for bacteria and fungi to grow, and if they contact with the eyes, keratitis or conjunctivitis may occur.

The basis for proper lens wearing and storage for eye health is to make a habit of washing before and after wearing the lens.

If stored without washing, foreign substances such as proteins adhere to the surface of the lens, after wearing, it can cause a foreign body sensation and appearing hazy.
