Health Tip: Care for Contact Lenses

(HealthDay News) -- Taking proper care of your contact lenses helps reduce your risk of eye infection.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology suggests these tips for healthier eyes:

  • If you have swelling, redness, discharge, blurriness, tearing or increased sensitivity to light, take out your contact lenses immediately and see an ophthalmologist.
  • Don't smoke.
  • Avoid decorative lenses commonly sold at costume shops. These lenses may cause eye damage.
  • Have your eyes examined at least once annually.
