Ensuring Safety with Contact Lens Wear
Here are some suggestions to keep patients eyes healthy during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season:
  1. Remind patients to carry a spare set of contact lenses or back-up glasses with them on overnight trips or long-distance driving excursions.
  2. Re-educate patients on the importance of wearing sunglasses, despite sometimes gloomy weather this time of year.
  3. Educate contact lens wearers that problems with dryness may be more prevalent in cooler weather due to a decrease in overall humidity levels. Recommend or provide a sample of quality rewetting drops.
  4. Discuss the importance of maintaining a proper contact lens wearing schedule, despite numerous activities and busy social calendars during this holiday season.
