What is Pink Eye?

Pink eye is the most common symptom of an eye infection called conjunctivits. Your eye becomes sore and, if not treated swiftly, can lead to complications.

I had a friend who developed a severe case of conjunctivitis through wearing extended wear contact lenses and, while this was over 15 years ago and extended wear lenses are now much safer, I would still never ever wear contacts designed to worn for up to 30 days.

Just the thought makes me squirm - imagine wearing the same pair of underpants for 30 days without a wash!

While I do feel negative about lenses designed to be worn all day and all night, there is one extended wear lens, fully approved by the FDA, and it's very popular. It's called AIR OPTIX Night &Day Aqua

If you have a hectic lifetstyle, theses lenses that are safe to wear for 24 hours a day for a whole month,, may be just right for you, but I still keep thinking about those potential pictures of pink eye you may be taking...
