Risky Eye Business? Contact Lens Wearers Tell All
A new study in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) found that the overwhelming majority of contact lens wearers admit to engaging in at least one hygiene habit that may put them at risk for an eye infection. The data has been released in conjunction with the second annual Contact Lens Health Week, to be held August 24–28, 2015.
To estimate the prevalence of contact lens hygiene-related risk behaviors, an adapted version of the Contact Lens Risk Survey was administered to 4,269 adults aged ≥18 as part of the Porter Novelli 2014 summer ConsumerStyles survey.
