Contact Lens Health Week
CDC, in close collaboration with partners, has organized Contact Lens Health Week as a strategy to increase public awareness and promote healthy contact lens wear and care. Increased awareness about the importance of proper contact lens hygiene can encourage contact lens wearers to adopt healthy habits that can reduce their chances of getting an eye infection. August 22-26, 2016 marks the third annual Contact Lens Health Week. This year's health messages cover three key areas:
- Healthy contact lens hygiene habits
- Proper use, care, and storage of contact lenses and supplies
- Regular visits to an eye care provider
CDC has developed a number of tools and materials to help promote Contact Lens Health Week and healthy contact lens wear and care throughout the year.
