Contact lens safety
Cosmetics are common sources of problems when it comes to wearing contact lenses. Misusing cosmetics can lead to severe adverse reactions, including allergy, injury and infection.
- Cosmetics shouldn’t be applied to eyes that are red, swollen or infected.
- Children who wear make-up can protect their eyes by choosing non-scented, hypoallergenic cosmetics manufactured by well-known, trusted brand names.
- Make-up should always be applied after inserting contact lenses and should never be applied while in motion or while driving.
- Children should wash their hands before inserting or removing contact lenses and should also wash make-up brushes regularly.
