To avoid an inflamed cornea, don’t wear your contact lenses when you shower or swim. Because bacteria-filled water can get trapped under your lenses, leading to an inflamed cornea. It’s painful – and it could even cause blindness. And nearly a million people get it every year. If you need to wear contacts or you forget to take them out – after you get out of the water, disinfect them, ASAP. Or if your contacts are the one-day disposable kind, throw them away after a shower or swim, and put in a fresh pair.
