And lower your risk of eye infection
By Diana Kohnle
(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.
