Contact Lens Use: Always Keep A Spare
In a recent
story, researchers found that many people who wear contact
lenses do not have a backup pair of contact lenses or glasses.
In other words, the only item that they have available to them
to ensure adequate vision is a solitary pair of contact lenses.
Of course, it
goes without saying that it is very important for a person who
wears contact lenses to maintain ready access to a backup pair

to this difference, it may actually be impossible to wear
contact lenses -- they may irritate a person’s eyes
significantly and severely, requiring their removal.
If you are a
contact lens wearer, make sure that you have a backup pair of
contact lenses and glasses readily available. Indeed, your best
option really is to make sure that you have a pair of backup
