VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron and Dr. Michelle Skowron DOES WEARING GLASSES HELP PREVENT PINKEYE? Since contact lens wearers are at higher risk of contracting conjunctivitis (commonly called pinkeye), choosing to wear glasses instead lowers that risk, especially for contact lens wearers who have chronic or recurring pinkeye. Anyone experiencing vision problems is also at higher risk for conditions like dry eye that can invite bacteria and make pinkeye infections more likely. Correcting minor vision problems with glasses lowers that risk and can help prevent recurring pinkeye too. If you wear contact lenses and get pinkeye, use backup glasses instead until the infection has healed. To prevent reinfection, dispose of any disposable contacts worn while you were contagious, disinfect all contacts before use, and wear contacts for shorter time periods. Practicing good hygiene is the best way to prevent conjunctivitis from spreading. Although conjunctivitis is typically a minor condition, sometimes it can develop into a more severe issue. If you have signs of conjunctivitis, schedule an exam with your optometrist. When you need to schedule an eye exam, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE. Our showroom is stocked with the latest and greatest trends in budget and designer eyewear. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Pinkeye is highly contagious, and a person can become reinfected from contaminated items like contact lenses, contact cases, eye drops, and eye makeup. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
