Can I wear Contact lenses during the period of the COVID -19 epidemic?

When a person with COVID -19 infection coughs or talks, virus particles can be sprayed from their mouth or nose into another person’s face. These droplets are most likely to be inhaled through your mouth or nose, but they can also enter through your eyes. The virus can also spread by touching fluid from an infected person’s eyes, or from objects that carry the fluid.
Wearing contact lenses does not necessarily increase your risk of coronavirus infection. But contact lens wearers do touch their eyes more than others. You can consider wearing glasses more often, especially if you tend to touch your eyes a lot when your contacts are in. Using glasses can also decrease irritation and shield you when you try to touch your eye. However, if you want to use a contact lens, please be very stringent on hygiene measures.
