When Is It Not Suitable To Wear Contact Lens

Contact lenses are suitable for most situations from general daily wear to sports application, but any situation that risk contaminating the lenses should be avoided. For example, working in dusty places. Some common complications are putting makeup on the lenses; usually with dusty brushes or gardening work especially mowing the lawn when dry and windy.

Problems usually come about when irritations are ignored. So if you inadvertently put makeup, or dirt from the lawn mower onto the lenses, it is best to remove and clean the lenses then put them back in. It only takes a minute to avoid an infection. It is also worth mentioning that over-using soft lenses is asking for trouble, so people who want to use monthly lenses for 3 months often have complications.
