Moorfield’s Eye Hospital has launched a campaign to increase awareness around safe contact lens wear.
The Healthy Habits, Healthy Eyes campaign is aimed at students heading off to university – one of the highest risk groups – and has been timed to coincide with fresher’s week.
Contact Lenses are safe, but it is important that you do not cut corners with caring for the lenses.
The website can be seen here. We would recommend a quick look at it- there is an interview with a student who’s first year did not go quite the way she had planned. We have our own Dos and Donts page here– worth as look if you are heading away to College or University soon.
Don’t take chances- it isn’t worth it!
