Keratitis is essentially an inflamed cornea sometimes caused by infection or bacteria.The cornea covers the pupil and iris and is susceptible to infection from contact lenses. Symptoms of keratitis include redness, pain, excess tears or eye discharge, blurry vision and even decreased vision. If it is left untreated, it can become severe or lead to permanent vision loss. When contact lenses are not cleaned properly, bacteria or parasites can inhabit the surface of the lens or inside the carrying case. When the lens is inside the eye, the cornea can then be contaminated, which results in infectious keratitis. That’s why it’s important to follow proper contact lens cleaning methods. Contact lenses can increase the risk of infectious and non-infectious keratitis, due to the lenses not being disinfected or wearing lenses for longer than recommended. It is more common in those who wear extended-wear contact lenses 33615.
Proper guidelines for cleaning should be followed in order to avoid a fungal eye infection. Contact lenses 33615 should always be cleaned, rinsed and disinfected. Hands should be washed so as not to transfer any dirt or germs to the eye. Avoid moisturizing soap, and clean lenses with a solution that is recommended for the brand. Cleaning lenses helps to remove buildup, cosmetics and other debris that can impair comfort.
