What should I do if I have a contact lens allergy?


If you have a contact lens allergy you should stop or reduce your lens wear until the problem clears up.

Make sure that you are following the proper care procedure for your lenses. If the problem doesn't resolve within a couple of days or if your symptoms worsen, visit your optician.

They may suggest that you change your contact lens type or solution or reduce the length of time that you wear them. Occasionally you might have to avoid wearing contact lenses for a period of time.
