Can You Swim With Contact Lenses?

Can you swim with contact lenses?

n-CONTACTS-large570Sources say that contact lenses should not be exposed to any sort of water, so it is not necessarily recommended that you swim with your contact lenses in. The different types of Bacterias in water can potentially cause eye infections and irritations.

While you have contacts in, you should avoid the following water: pools, oceans, lakes and hot tubs. If water gets in your eyes when swimming, you should remove, clean and disinfect your contact lenses as soon as possible to reduce your risk of eye irritation and infection.

Helpful tip: if you swim with your contact lenses, goggles will help reduce your risk of infection to your eyes.
