Can I still wear my contact lenses if I have conjunctivitis?
No. Contact lenses should not be worn until the symptoms have completely gone.
If you continue to insert and replace your contact lenses, you'll keep reinfecting your eyes.
Plus, if you continue to wear your lenses, the contact lens case will become contaminated and it's highly likely that you'll spread it to both your eyes.
Even if you've been prescribed treatment, you should not wear your lenses until your symptoms have disappeared.
