Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Optometric Association (AOA) confirm that there is no updated evidence to suggest that contact lens wearers are more at risk for acquiring COVID-19 than eyeglass wearers. To protect the eyes during pandemic, contact lens wearers should strictly continue practicing safe contact lens wear and care hygiene habits. Not only to reduce viral transmission, but appropriate hygiene also helps to prevent infectious eye diseases caused by other microorganisms.

Before wearing and after removal of contact lens, it is necessary to wash the hands first with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hands must be dry by using clean tissue papers. If signs and symptoms e.g. fever, runny nose, cough and sneeze develop, substituting glasses for contact lenses is recommended. In addition, contact lens wearers usually touch their eyes while wearing lens, resulting in an increased risk of vital transmission. Hand hygiene is extremely important to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
